Research interests

Solar and battery power systems are growing fast in Australia and globally, but there are still advances to be made in these innovative technologies. Associate Professor Weidong Xiao’s research aims to develop best practice for the engineering and control of these systems, resulting in increased reliability and efficiency.

“My research involves the modelling, design, simulation and control of power electronics, with a particular focus on photovoltaic power systems, DC microgrids, DC distribution systems and emerging industries.

“The main aim of my research is to improve the reliability and efficiency of energy conversion in power systems, especially in renewable power generation and electric vehicles.

“This area involves both theoretical analysis and practical hand-on experience. It is a bridge between industry and academy, which suits me well because before I moved into academia I had more than 10 years’ experience working with industry.

“From 2015 to 2016 I supervised a project with an industrial company in Bahrain to improve the efficiency of its public street lighting systems. The company wanted to replace its traditional system of public street lighting with an integrated photovoltaic and DC power solution, which is my key area of research.

“I have been working in this area since 2001, and I joined the University of Sydney at the beginning of 2017. The university’s reputation gives it the ability to attract high-quality research students as well as research funding.”
