Novel structural health monitoring approach provided by models developed from empirical sensor fusion data and, numerical methods.
Power Electronics Converters are exceptionally important in systems that operate in changeable, isolated, challenging environments or where the degradation of operation can potentially be life threatening. Practical examples of scenarios which would benefit from the integration of Condition Monitoring include; offshore wind turbines, aerospace power supplies, traction drives and electric vehicles.
This research investigates systematic characterisation of threat indicators, in the context of early warning systems. For a given class of stealthy threats, the research will provide basis of trade-off decision-making between uncertainty of early indicators and estimating manifestation of threats.
This project is to design and model an optimised Brushless Doubly Fed Machine (BDFM) for wind power generation application. A laboratory prototype BDFM will be constructed and tested based on the new optimised design.
This project aims to study Visible light communication (VLC) as an alternative to existing RF technology in swarm robots to increase communication speed. VLC system benefits from availability of huge license-free bandwidth which is ideal for communication among a large number of robots. The study aims to overcome the limitation of swarm robots by replacing/complementing the RF technology.
