Interests: Our focuses are design, management and control of various dynamic systems, especially energy storage systems, microgrids and smart grids, wireless power transfer systems, and electric vehicles. The research includes a strong “interdisciplinary” element, i.e., synergistic integration of physical systems, control theory and design, sensing and actuating devices, and increasingly importantly human behaviors, which makes it possible to generate more efficient, smarter, more resilient and reliable systems.
 

Directions: Energy storage and management, wireless power transfer, dynamics and motion control, and wide applications in electronic devices, electric vehicles, microgrids, smart grids, etc. Our current research focuses on

  • Distributed modeling and autonomous control of networked energy systems;

  • System-level analysis, design and control of high-frequency wireless power transfer systems.

New topics include, but not limited to

  • Charging behavior-based EV fleet charging coordination and demand-side management;

  • Energy efficient information systems such as data centers and 5G networks;

  • High-spatial-freedom wireless power transfer for ultra-low-power and high-power applications;

  • Spatial six-DOF magnetic field shaping for multiple-receiver wireless power transfer.
