The Faculty of Information Technology held a seminar at Block B, Room 305 on June 18th, 2021. Professor Hao Chen from China University of Mining and Technology was invited to give a talk entitled “Key technologies in a Switched Reluctance Motor Drive”.
Switched Reluctance Motor is a new type of motor, which is runs by reluctance torque rather than the Lorentz force based on the classic Faraday's law of induction. It has advantages of simple rotor structure, high power density and flexible control. The talk introduced the background and state-of-art of the research of SRM. The focus was put on the mechanical and magnetic design of high-performance SRM; the design of integrated multi-port power converter; different control strategies of SRM; fault diagnosis of the motor drive; performance evaluation of the motor drive and its application in EV and renewable energy generation.
Dr. Hao Chen is currently a full professor with the School of Electrical and Power Engineering, China University of Mining and Technology. His major research interests include design and control of special motor drive, and its applications in Electric Vehicle (EV) and renewable energy generation. He has published over 200 papers on refereed international journals and international conferences. He also obtained 14 US Patents, 23 Australian Patents, 1 Danish Patent, 7 Canadian Patents, 3 South African Patents, 10 Russian Patents, 47 Chinese Invention Patents, 6 Chinese Utility Model Patents. He is the winner of Chinese New Century Hundred-Thousand-Ten-Thousand Talents, the Prize of Science and Technology of Chinese Youth, Government Especial Allowance of People’s Republic of China State Department, the Youth Prize of Fok Ying Tung Education funding Foundation, the first-class Prize of Science and Technology Progress of Jiangsu Province, etc.
