Qing-Chang Zhong, a senior member of IEEE and a fellow of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), is Chair Professor in the Department of Automatic Control and Systems Engineering, University of Sheffield, UK. Jointly with George Weiss, a professor of control engineering at Tel Aviv University, Israel, he invented the synchronverter technology to operate inverters to mimic synchronous generators, which was recognized as “highly commended” in the 2009 IET Innovation Awards. He received a Ph.D. degree in control and power engineering (awarded the Best Doctoral Thesis Prize) from Imperial College London in 2004, and a Ph.D. degree in control theory and engineering from Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 2000, and is the co-author of three research monographs, including Control of Power Inverters in Renewable Energy and Smart Grid Integration; a fourth, Completely Autonomous Power Systems (CAPS): Next Generation Smart Grids, is scheduled to appear in 2015. In 2012-2013, he spent a six-month sabbatical at the Cymer Center for Control Systems and Dynamics (CCSD), University of California, San Diego, and an eight-month sabbatical at the Center for Power Electronics Systems (CPES), Virginia Tech, Blacksburg.
