Research Interests

My research interests encompass complex physical 'acausal' system modelling and performance analysis of electric powertrain including; electrical machine, control and power converters, wireless charging technology, HIL real-time simulation, characterisation and modelling of electromagnetic systems such as electrical machine using finite element packages for low carbon technologies. The focus is not only on development of better modelling and simulation methodologies to predict the behaviour of multi-disciplinary engineering systems, but also on developing engineering solution to real-world problem.


Dr Chek Pin Yang is a Research Fellow at the WMG. He received his Ph.D. in 'Measurement and Modelling of Electromagnetic Materials' from the University of Birmingham. Since then, he has worked on a variety of both public and private-sector funded projects, ranging from designing compact tunable high performance RF filters, high Q helical resonator using Viscous Plastic Processing (VPP) technique, to constructing gyro-TWT devices based on gyromagnetic resonance and non-reciprocal effects.

In 2011, he joined WMG to investigating techniques to model wireless charging systems for automotive applications to enable sensitivity and performance analysis. He has been responsible for the design of a wireless charging test and characterisation facility that will be located in WMG. He was an invited panellist at the IEEE Wireless Power Transfer workshop held in Michigan, US.

Chek is currently working in collaboration with Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) to characterise the noise and EMI present in HEVs and PHEVs, with focus on developing high fidelity machine models, characterising electrical machines, high voltage architecture models integration and development of control algorithms that will minimise the noise effects.
