The Utilisation Group has established a reputation in the field of power electronics, machines, drives and traction system, notably in the areas of power conversion and railways engineering. The power electronics area includes static power conversion, the application of power electronics to improve the performance of power systems, renewable resources, magnetics, battery and superconducting energy storages and use of artificial intelligence in power electronics. The machine and drive areas cover the machines design and motion control research work. They include intelligent motion control, 2D and 3D actuation systems, condition monitoring, induction generators, switched reluctance motor drives and soft-switching drives. The transportation research work includes traction system, traffic control, sensors in rail track and electric vehicle.


Our aims are to use the above experience to help local industry and the region to improve competitiveness through consultancy services, cooperative projects and research development of new technologies. We have 7 academic staff members and over 25 research personnel and with total research funding of more than HK$10 million in the last two years. We have published over 40 Journal papers in the last 2 years. We recently established a Power Electronics Research Centre which is devoted to provide facilities, research and development for industry. We also organise international and local conferences and seminars regularly to serve both the industry and researchers.
