Success for Prof Qiang Liu

Prof. Qiang Liu, from the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, was recently appointed as Secretary of the IEEE Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation Society (DEIS).

The IEEE is the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, the world’s leading professional association for the advancement of technology. IEEE DEIS is the society whose field of interest includes the study and application of dielectrics from the molecular level, through nano-structured materials, to insulation systems in industrial, commercial, and power system equipment, to emerging applications such as those at high power levels and in biological and other small-scale systems. The DEIS supports the entire scope of this field from advancing the basic science, to enhancing the ability of practicing engineers to use emerging dielectric materials, to the development of standards for the prudent application of existing and new insulation systems.

Qiang Liu is a Professor of High Voltage Engineering and the Head of the High Voltage Research Group in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering. Qiang is the Convenor of CIGRE D1.01 Advisory Group on "Dielectric liquids and liquid impregnated insulation systems" and an associate editor of the IET High Voltage Journal. His research focuses on dielectric liquids and their applications in high voltage equipment and future electric transportation.
