Biography


Prof. Eric Cheng graduated from the University of Bath in 1987 and started research in Power Electronics and obtained his PhD in 1990 from the same university.


He was then employed by the University of Bath as a research officer and in 1991 he joined the University of Birmingham as a research fellow. He worked on a number of projects in the Birmingham University including development of power conditioning system for high power ion-thruster for space application, high frequency magnetics, AC to AC conditioning system for future drive applications.


He joined Lucas Electronics as a Senior Engineer in 1995, and in 1996 he joined Lucas Advanced Vehicle Systems Development and in 1997 he joined Lucas Aerospace as a Principal Engineer. During his three years in Lucas, he was the project leader of a number of projects with multinational companies and leader of the power electronics group. He developed the advanced power electronics concept for civil aircraft power system, high temperature power semiconductor and aircraft power conditioning and actuation systems.


He has developed a number of electric vehicle techniques including the battery charging system, battery management, electric drive, lighting, power conversion, in-wheel and integrated charger. He is also the project leader of a number of electric vehicle projects. He is also then project leader of a number of power electronics projects including medical robotics, intelligent clothing, DC distribution, electromagnetic modeling and excitation. He received the IEE Sebastian Z De Ferranti Premium Award (1995), outstanding consultancy award (2000), Faculty Merit award for best teaching (2003) from the University, Faculty Engineering Industrial and Engineering Services Grant Achievement Award (2006), Brussels Innova Energy Gold medal with Mention (2007), Consumer Product Design Award (2008), Electric vehicle team merit award of the Faculty (2009), Special Prize and Silver Medal of Geneva’s Invention Expo (2011) and Eco Star award (2012), Seoul International Invention Fair Gold prize (2015)for his contribution in super-capacitor to electric vehicles, iCAN Gold Medal (2016) for his contribution in active suspension , and Gold Award – 7th Hong Kong innovation and technology Award – for the contribution body integrated upper-capacitor electric vehicle. He has published over 450 papers and 7 books. His research interests are all aspects of power electronics, electric vehicles, electromagnetics, motor drives, renewable energy and energy systems.


He is now the Director of Power Electronics Research Center and the professor of the Department of Electrical Engineering.
