Dr Jin Yang
- Reader (Systems Power & Energy)
Dr Jin Yang received the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Glasgow in 2011. He then worked as a research scholar at the University of New South Wales (Australia) before joining Aston University as a Lecturer in Power Engineering. Since October 2019, he has been with the James Watt School of Engineering at the University of Glasgow, as a Senior Lecturer in Smart Grid and Electrical Power Conversion.
Dr Jin Yang is a Senior Member of IEEE, Member of IET and Chartered Engineer (CEng), Senior Fellow of Higher Education Academy (SFHEA).
Dr Jin Yang’s research focus is Power Systems, including the power transmission/distribution network analysis, operation and control considering high penetration of distributed renewable power generation and increasing storage (including electric vehicles and vehicle-to-grid), as low-carbon technologies to Power Systems interfaced via power electronics and Smart Grid technologies. Relevant topics are:
- Power Systems Modelling and Analysis
- Power Systems Low-Carbon Technologies
- Power Systems Simulations and Optimisation for Operation and Planning purposes
- Impacts of Distributed Energy Resources on Power Networks (renewable powr generation, energy storage systems, electric vehicles and vehicle-to-grid)
- Smart Grid Technologies, including IoT, ML, Blockchain applications
- New Power Market for Peer-to-Peer Energy Sharing and Trading
