Head of Power and Control Systems Research Laboratory



Professor Wang joined the School of Engineering at the University of Warwick in January 2011. Her previous post was in the School of Electronic, Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Birmingham, where she was professor of Control and Electrical Power and Deputy Director of the Midlands Energy Graduate School. She has also served as Lecturer and Senior Lecturer at the University of Liverpool from 1998 to 2007. Her research interests include power system modelling and control, energy storage and grid integration, energy efficient actuators and optimal control methods. She has published over 100 journal papers and gained a number of best paper awards. Her research has led to several practical innovations, including a smart voltage controller product and a clean pneumatic UPS (uninterrupted power supply) through previous joint research projects with industry. She led the EPSRC Grand Challenge Programme in Energy Storage “Integrated Market-fit and Affordable Grid-scale Energy Storage (IMAGES)” (EP/K002228/1, Through the project, an open-source software tool has been developed for compressed air and thermal energy storage ( She is Co-I for Supergen Energy Storage Hub (EP/L019469/1) and member of Supergen Energy Storage Network+ 2019 (EP/S032622/1). She is also part of the Joint UK-India Clean Energy Centre (JUICE) (EP/P003605/1).
