WHO WE ARE...
Smart Grids Research Cluster at the University of Exeter is lead by Prof. Zhongdong Wang. The team includes Prof. Peter Crossley, Dr. Shanika Matharage and Dr. Shuhang Shen
WHAT WE DO...
Our research focuses on to the conventional power network and the opportunities and challenges with related to the conversion towards a Smart Grid with future low carbon energy scenarios.
Novel insulation materials
We research into safer and environmentally friendly new insulation materials for a resilient and low maintenance power network.
Interaction between equipment and power network
We investigate the interaction between equipment and power network in future low carbon energy scenarios and the effect of renewable sources and variable energy demand on power network.
Modelling and simulation of equipment
We use thermal, magnetic and power flow simulation to improve equipment modelling and support design improvements and system modification.
Advanced condition monitoring techniques
We investigate the possibilities of deploying low cost sensors to for more data from the network and use machine learning for a faster and reliable decision making on assets in power network.
