Aim: PhD in Engineering

Topic: Wide Bandgap Power Electronics


Omotoso Olutayo Olusogo graduated as the overall best student in MSc Electrical Power — with Distinction from Newcastle University UK in 2019. He received a BSc degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering with First Class honours at Olabisi Onabanjo University (Nigeria) in 2017.

He is currently a Doctoral Student at the Centre for Doctoral Training: To advance the deployment of Future Mobility Technology (CDT - FMT), University of Warwick under the sponsorship of Lyra Electronics Ltd, UK. His research focuses on converters (AC-DC, DC-DC, AC-AC): design, implementation and prototyping using Wide Bandgap Power Electronics as the underpinning technology. He led the CDT-FMT’s 2020 Cohort Project where he worked on the “Design and Integrity Monitoring for Powertrain of an Electric Vehicle”. Olutayo also renders Graduate Teaching Assistance (GTA) in School of Engineering.

He was a Technologist at The Federal Polytechnic, Ado-Ekiti (Nigeria) where he worked on power systems projects. He also worked as an Engineer at Living Witness Ltd (Nigeria) between 2007 and 2013, where he supervised production operation of foods. Presently, he is a Member of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (MIET), UK.

My News and Interests

Blog: The Future Mobility Technology: Everyone is a stakeholder
For an aspiring doctoral candidate in Power Electronics or Connected and Autonomous Vehicles, it is often a herculean task to decide the best research group to join and undertake their research. Similarly, the stakeholders in the automotive industry face the same challenge when hunting for high-quality doctoral candidates to work on their organisation’s real-world projects. Omotoso Olutayo shares his experience at the centre and the reasons why the CDT-FMT meets both students’ and stakeholders’ needs.

My Research

At the moment and going into the future, the quest for sustainable development and mitigation of the effect of climate change is on pressing demand. The UK's Vision 2030 — Banning the petrol and diesel cars on the UK roads by 2030 and replacing them with pure electric cars — has put every stakeholders (government, car manufacturers and suppliers, and researchers alike) on their toes.

Researchers and industry sponsors at the Centre for Doctoral Training: To advance the deployment of Future Mobility Technology (CDT - FMT) are key drivers of this vision. As a Doctoral Researcher sponsored by Lyra Electronics and supervised by Professor Richard McMahon and Prof Oleh Kiselychnyk my research focuses on applying the underpinning technology in Wide Bandgap Power Electronics in developing efficient, cost effective and durable converters/inverters for automotive and other applications.
