Expert is a professor in wind energy engineering, and has been leading a research group in wind energy engineering for three years and focusing on the design and analysis of variable-speed fixed pitch small to medium size wind turbines with synchronous permanent magnet generators. His research work in wind energy engineering covers wind turbine system design, aerodynamics analysis of wind turbine rotor and blades, wind turbine blade design, wind turbine performance analysis, and smart applications of small wind turbines. He has good design experience of variable-speed fixed pitch small to medium size wind turbines. He has excellent experience in training in wind energy engineering.
