Professor Zhao Xu received B.Eng, M.Eng and Ph.D from Zhejiang University (China), National University of Singapore, and The University of Queensland in 1996, 2002 and 2006 respectively. He joined as an Assistant Professor, and later became Associate Professor, at Centre for Electric Technology, Department of Electrical Engineering, Technical University of Denmark (DTU) since 2006. In Feb 2010, He joined Department of Electrical Engineering, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU), where he is now a Professor and Leader of Smart Grid Research Area.


He is the Directors of Power System Laboratory and Smart Microgrid Laboratory, and Leader of B. Eng (PT Electrical Engineering 41080).


He has edited 1 book, and published over 150 technical papers in international top journals, and conferences. He has led and participated in several large scale research and consulting projects in Europe, China, and Australia, concerning wind energy, demand side, electric vehicles, electricity market, and power system planning etc., including Hong Kong Research General Council Theme Based Research Projects on Smart Solar Energy harvesting, Storage and Utilization and Sustainable Power Delivery Structures for High Renewables, Wind Energy Development in China (www.dwed.org.cn) and the EDISON project (www.edison-net.dk). He has secured more than 20 million HK$ research funding from local and overseas authorities and organizations. Since 2006, he has successfully supervised 10 PhD students, and more than 30 M.sc students as main or co-supervisor.
