Prof.Chi Yung Chung, CAE Fellow, IEEE Fellow
The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, China
Prof. Chung received the B.Eng. degree (with First Class Honors) and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, China, in 1995 and 1999, respectively. He has worked for the University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, SK, Canada; Powertech Labs, Inc., Surrey, BC, Canada; the University of Alberta, Edmonton, AB, Canada; and The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong, China. His research interests include smart grid, micro grid, renewable energy, power system stability/control, planning and operation, applications of advanced optimization methods, power markets and electric vehicle charging.
Before rejoining the department, Prof. Chung was a Professor, the NSERC/SaskPower Senior Industrial Research Chair in Smart Grid Technologies, and the SaskPower Chair in Power Systems Engineering at the University of Saskatchewan. He was a prominent leader for advancing academic activities and applied research in power systems engineering development in the province of Saskatchewan. He led a research team, supported by SaskPower and NSERC of Canada, to conduct cutting-edge and long-term smart grid research for SaskPower and address critical technical issues associated with smart grid technologies and their applications to real power systems. His research work has not only generated 3 US patents, 3 book chapters and over 300 publications, but has also resulted in successful transference of three new commercial software packages developed for power system analysis. Software package “Small Signal Analysis Tool (SSAT)” developed by him is now being used by over 140 power companies and nearly 100 universities worldwide. He has provided consultancy services to both government agencies and well-known private companies. He has also served as an editor for nine international power and energy systems journals.
