Power Quality Key Lab. of Sichuan University
Power Quality and Premium Power research team has a long research tradition in Electrical Engineering. Prof. Yang Honggeng started with the research work of power quality, especially of power system harmonic in the 1990s. He proposed the fluctuation method for the customer harmonic emission level estimation which has been widely accepted by industry and academia. Prof. Xiao Xianyong operated an active research on voltage sag from 2003, the uncertainty evaluation theory and measure for voltage sag problem and equipment sensitivity proposed by Prof. Xiao have been widely used in many fields. In last 20 years, the scale of the research team has been gradually expanded and many research achievements have been made.
The team has active collaborations with industry, government agencies and universities, and our research mainly focus on a) Power Quality and Premium Power, b) PQ control (especially for harmonic and voltage sag mitigation), c) Power Quality and its Economic Evaluation, and d) Power Quality Valuation Methodology（Price Premium Valuation and Insurance Mechanism of Premium Power). Moreover, a number of important achievements have been made, i.e 1) Published 5 National Planned Textbooks, and more than 10 national invention patents have been granted; 2) More than 200 papers have been published in international academic journals, among which more than 30 are indexed by SCI and more than 100 are indexed by EI. 3) Undertaken over 100 projects from industry and government.
