Control of Power Inverters in Renewable Energy and Smart Grid Integration
Dr. Qing-Chang Zhong Qing-Chang Zhong received the Ph.D. degree in control theory and engineering from Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Shanghai, China, in 1999, and the Ph.D. degree in control and power engineering (awarded the Best Doctoral Thesis Prize) from Imperial College London, London, U.K., in 2004. He holds the Chair Professor in Control and Systems Engineering at the Dept of Automatic Control and Systems Engineering, the University of Sheffield. He is a Fellow of IET (2010) and a Senior Member of IEEE (2004). He is an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics and of the Conference Editorial Board of IEEE Control Systems Society. He is a Vice Chair of IFAC TC 6.3 (Power and Energy Systems) and IFAC TC 2.2 (Linear Control Systems), and has been on the Program Committees of many international conferences. He was awarded one of the seven Leverhulme Trust Senior Research Fellowships in 2009 by the Royal Academy of Engineering, UK. He has attracted over £2M research funding from EPSRC, RAEng, TSB, and industrial companies etc during the last five years. His current research focuses on advanced control theory, power electronics, renewable energy, smart grid integration, electrical vehicles and control applications in other industrial sectors.
