Dr Mingyang Sun is a Tenure-Track Professor under the Hundred Talents Program at Zhejiang University. Also, he is an Honorary Lecturer at Imperial College London, UK. He received his Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering in the Control and Power (CAP) group at Imperial College London in 2017. From 2017 to 2019, he was a Research Associate and a DSI Affiliate Fellow at Imperial College London.
His research mainly focuses on the investigation of the novel Big Data Analytics and Artificial Intelligence methods to energy systems, with a special emphasis on dealing with uncertainties arising from RES and energy consumers for system investment planning and operation. In particular, his research interests include data-driven cyber-physical energy system security assessment, smart meter data analysis, energy forecasting, flexibility quantification, and large-scale energy system investment planning. He has published more than 30 peer-reviewed papers, including 15 first-author/corresponding-author high-quality journal publications in IEEE Transactions, Applied Energy, and Energy. Two of his conference papers have been awarded the Best Paper for IEEE PES GM 2016 and PMAPS 2016.
Furthermore, he was involved in many multi-partner collaborative projects and led the work regarding machine learning for trial data modelling and analysis. The projects concerned were “EU-SysFlex” (Horizon 2020, EUR20 million), “Innovative Tools for Electrical System Security within Large Areas (iTesla)”,(FP7, EUR19.4 million), “Low Carbon London” (UK Power Networks, GBP28 million) and “Flexible Residential Energy Efficiency Demand Optimization Management (FREEDOM)” (Western Power Distribution, GBP5.2 million).
