Academic Staff

FU Wei-nong

BSc(Eng.), MSc(Eng.), PhD

Room: CF613



Prof. Fu obtained his BEng from Hefei University of Technology in 1982, MEng from Shanghai University of Technology in 1989 and PhD from The Hong Kong Polytechnic University in 1999. 

Before he joined PolyU, he was one of the key developers at Ansoft Corporation in Pittsburgh, USA. He has about seven years of working experience at Ansoft, focusing on the development of commercial software Maxwell, which is a leading commercial software package for the computation of electromagnetic fields of electromechanical equipments. During 1982 to 1986, he worked at Shanghai Electrical Apparatus Research Institute, where he accumulated valuable experience to deal with the design and manufacturing of electric devices in practice, and constructed a solid foundation for further academic career development.  

Prof. Fu has made many contributions to the theory and application of electromagnetic field computation and electric device design, including the publication of over 180 refereed journal papers. He regularly serves as paper reviewer for IEEE Trans. Magnetics, IEEE Trans. Energy Conversion, IEEE Trans. Industrial Electronics, IEEE Trans. Power Electronics, IEEE Trans. Industry Application, Energies, and COMPUMAG, CEFC, INTERMAG international conferences. 

Prof. Fu’s research interests mainly focus on computational electromagnetics, optimal design of electric devices, applied electromagnetics, and novel electric machines.
