Adrià Junyent-Ferré is a Lecturer of the Dept. of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Imperial College London. He received his degree in Industrial Engineering from the School of Industrial Engineering of Barcelona (ETSEIB), Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) in 2007, and the PhD degree in Electrical Engineering from the same university in 2011. He was a researcher at Centre d'Innovació Tecnològica en Convertidors Estàtics i Accionaments (CITCEA-UPC) from 2006 to 2012, where he worked on grid integration aspects of wind power generation in close collaboration with Alstom Wind (former Ecotecnia s.coop). He joined the Control and Power Resarch Group of the Dept. of Electrical and Electronic Eng. in Imperial College London first as a Research Associate in February 2013.
His field of expertise is the design and control of power electronic converters for high power applications, with specific interest in wind power generation and DC transmission. His research focuses on the development of control methods to enable a cost-effective low carbon power system based on renewable generation and DC supergrids.
He is currently involved in the Resilient Hybrid Technology for High-Value Microgrids Project (RHYTHM EP/N034570/1), a joint UK-Korea consortium funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council UK and the Korea Institute of Energy Technology Evaluation and Planning (KETEP).
He is a member of the IEEE Power & Energy Society and the IEEE Control Systems Society. He is an Associate Editor of the IEEE Trans. on Sustainable Energy and a reviewer of the IEEE Trans. on Power Delivery, IEEE Trans. on Energy Conversion.
He is involved in teaching of the undergraduate courses of the Dept. as well as the MSc Future Power Networks and the joint CDT on Future Power Networks and Smart Grids between Imperial College London and University of Strathclyde.
