Shahab Nejad
Rui Zhao
 

Shahab Nejad is a Postdoctoral Research Associate within the CREESA Group at the University of Sheffield. His doctoral study was with the Electrical Machines and Drives Research Group at Sheffield, where he developed novel techniques for adaptive battery energy / power management applications. He is currently investigating the technical challenges in interfacing, operating, aggregating and smart dispatching of battery energy storage systems for grid-support applications, under a £3.8m EPSRC funded project. He is also involved with the development of SIEMENS MindSphere; a project focused on realisation of Industry 4.0 in energy storage cyber-physical systems. His research interests also include interfacing and grading electric vehicle traction batteries for second-life applications, in particular, for grid-support services.

A Research Associate within the CREESA Group at the University of Sheffield, Rui is working on high-energy power conversion and storage systems. His particular interests are in power electronics, energy conversion and storage. His doctoral study was with the Electrical Machines and Drives Research Group at Sheffield, where he developed novel converter topologies and controls for both conventional and contactless power systems suitable for applications in Electric Vehicles (EVs) and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs).  Between 2009 and 2012, he founded Cydra System, developing management units and power inverters for solar power applications.
