Background and activities

Background

I am a PhD Candidate at the Electric Power Technology Group at the Department of Electric Power Engineering. The topic of my PhD work is design of variable speed generators for hydropower applications. I finished my master’s thesis called Optimal Design of Tidal Power Generator Using Stochastic Optimization Techniques at the department in the spring of 2014. In my thesis, I used Genetic Algorithms and Particle Swarm Optimization to optimize the design of a permanent magnet synchronous generator with concentrated windings. I spent one year abroad from 2012 to 2013 at The University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada.
