Edited byzx Date:2017-05-22 10:10

The EE College warmly welcomed the appointment ceremony of Prof Timothy Green to Qiushi Chair Professor of Zhejiang University at Zijingang campus, ZJU on May 20, 2017. The ceremony was chaired by Prof Wei Wei, dean of the College, attended also by heads from the University and EE faculy and stduents.

Prof Song Yonghua, the executive vice dean of Zhejiang University, presented Prof Timothy Green the letter of appointment for Qiushi Chair Professor by the University on May 20, 2017.

Prof Green addressed afterward in his speech that it was his honor to be granted the Qiushi Chair Professor of ZJU on such an important occasion of the 120th anniversary of Zhejiang University. According to Prof Green, it meant opportunity for both ZJU and the Impeiral College London to enhance the research collaboration in areas of energy between China and UK. After the ceremony, Prof Green presented EE students a speech on “Opportunities and Barriers for using Power Electronics in Distribution Networks”, introducing briefly how the Energy Future Lab operated at Imperial.

Prof Green has since February 2014 been director of the Energy Future Lab at Imperial with responsibility for facilitating interdisciplinary research and postgraduate education in energy and in coordinating its dissemination. He remains Deputy Head of the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering. He leads as welle EPSRC hub in energy networks, HubNet, based on a core of 8 UK universities and a Grand Challenge EPSRC project on infrastructure technologies for the future network, The Transformation of the Top and Tail. His research group focus on the analysis and technology to support the development of a low carbon electricity supply network that is able to accommodate variable renewable sources and new widespread electric vehicle charging while still delivering a cost effective and very reliable service. His research specialisation is in power electronics for use in power systems. At the high power end of the system this is focused on High-Voltage DC transmission for collection of off-shore wind energy and international inter-connection. In the lower power distribution system, the focus is on managing photovoltaic sources and contributing to voltage regulation. This work is supported by EPSRC, Alstom Grid, National Grid and UK Power Networks.
