Field of work



Shujun Zhang has many years experiences in the fields of Power Electronics, Electric Drives and Power Systems in both academy and industry. The most exciting point in these fields for him is to implement technologies to create the state-of-the-art power conversion systems for the society. He has research interests in power electronics, electric machines and actuators, digital real time control, renewable energy, battery, power systems, and microgrid. He has close contacts with industry  for both collaboration projects and consultation as a technical advisor. He is open to get more projects from both industries and acadimia.

If you are interested in studying or working in his lab in bachelor, master or PhD program, or if you would like to develop a good idea to products, or if you have technical challenges during development of your products, please feel free to contact him:
