Adrià Junyent-Ferré is a Senior Lecturer of the Dept. of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Imperial College London. He obtained 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 the 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 collaboration with Alstom Wind (former Ecotecnia s.coop). He joined the Control and Power Resarch Group of the Dept. of Electrical and Electronic Eng. at Imperial College London as a Research Associate in February 2013 and became a Lecturer in September 2014.
His field of expertise is the design and control of power electronic converters. He has specific interest in HVDC transmission and new forms of low voltage power distribution. His research focuses on the development of control methods to enable a cost-effective low carbon power system based on renewable generation.
He leads the RENGA project (EP/R030235/1) a Global Challenges Research Funds project to develop solutions to expand an electrical power system starting from small scale autonomous minigrids.
He is a senior member of IEEE and a member of the IEEE Power & Energy Society and the IEEE Control Systems Society. He is an Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Power Delivery.
He is the first year course organiser for Electrical and Electronic Engineering and teaches several modules related to control of power electronics, power electronic converter technology and real time signal processing.
