Personal profile

Research Interests

I am interested in research areas where energy conversion and transmission play a major role, such as hybrid power networks, renewable energy systems, transmission and distribution networks, electrical machines and drives as well as numerical methods in electrical engineering. In particular, I carry out the research in the area of electrical machines and power electronics for applications such as renewable energy, electric traction systems and electrical drives for industrial applications. It includes the electrical machines and drives optimization (using genetic and particle swarm algorithms) based on the analytical models and finite-element simulation.

I conduct research, student supervision, teaching, course development, and consultancy work in the following areas.

  • Electrical Machines and Energy Conversion
  • Power Electronics and Electrical Drives
  • Energy Storage and Electric Vehicles
  • Renewable Energy Systems
  • Power System Analysis
  • Distributed Generation
  • Motion Control Systems

I always look for talented and self-motivated students who would like to join my research group. Students seeking a scholarship should initially contact me to discuss their proposed research project or to be given possible research ideas for a PhD scholarship application.

China Scholarship Council (CSC) scholarship also offers funding for Chinese students who would like to study a PhD in Australia. Furthermore, PhD students currently studying in China can apply for a CSC visiting PhD scholarship. Please contact me directly if interested. 

Australian Government Research Training Program Scholarships and Flinders University Postgraduate Scholarships are competitive scholarships open to both domestic and international research applicants.

More information on these scholarships and the application deadlines/requirements are outlined at Scholarships website. Application deadlines for International Students are usually Early August. Application deadlines for International Students are usually Late October.

The College of Science and Engineering each year offers a small number of research awards to domestic applicants for postgraduate research. The deadlines for it is Late July.
