Dr Wenlong Ming
Lecturer - Research
Dr Wenlong Ming (WM) has been a Lecturer of Power Electronics at Cardiff University since August 2016. He was awarded a PhD degree from the University of Sheffield in March 2016 and was funded by EPSRC as an exchange scholar to visit the Centre for Power Electronics Systems (CPES) in Virginia Tech USA, for four months in 2012.
He conducts fundamental and applied research into future electronic circuits and systems. A paradigm shift of semiconductor technology from silicon to compound semiconductors (CS) brings an exciting opportunity to significantly improve efficiency, reliability and power density of such electronic circuits and systems and to enable new applications that silicon cannot support. The high-level objective of his research is to investigate how to solve research and innovation challenges behind this paradigm shift through seamless and holistic integration of control, power electronics, radio-frequency electronics, semiconductor physics and materials.
He is the module leader of EN2058 Control Engineering and ENT695 Research Study. The modules he taught also include EN3058 Power Electroincs, EN3709 Grid Integration of Renewables and EN2708 Machines and Power Electronics. He is also the Year tutor of MSc Electrical Energy systems.
