Abstract: In aerospace industry, the More Electric Aircraft (MEA) architecture is emerging, which employs the concept of electrical power for driving aircraft subsystems currently powered by hydraulic or pneumatic means including utility and flight control actuation, environmental control system, lubrication and fuel pumps, and numerous other utility functions.
In this seminar, Dr. Chushan Li presents an overview of More Electric Aircraft, and highlights the researches on developing high power density power electronics converters for aerospace applications. These researches enable the MEA applications and significantly reduce the weight, size, and life-cycle-cost of the overall system, improve reliability and result in ease of manufacturing and maintenance. The results are also applicable to wide applications in general industry. Finally, discussions related challenges and potential opportunities are given to show the research potentials in this area.
Biography: Dr. Chushan Li received the B.E.E. degree and Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the Department of Electrical Engineering, Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China, in 2008 and 2014, respectively. Currently, he is a postdoctoral fellow in Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Ryerson University, Canada.
From April to September in 2008, he was an internship student with the Power Application Design Center in National Semiconductor (Hong Kong) Co.Ltd. From December 2010 to October 2011, he was a visiting scholar with the Freedom Center in North Carolina State University. From December 2013 to June 2014, he was a research assistant in Hong Kong Polytechnic University.
His research interest includes high power density power converter design and AC-DC power conversion. He has published 31 technical papers and held 7 patents. In 2013, he has received First-Class National Scholarship for Graduate Student in China.
