Power Research Group is led by Dr.
Liuchen Chang in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering
at the University of New Brunswick. The group conducts research and
training in the areas of distributed power generation, renewable energy
conversion, power electronics, electrical machines, communications, and
advanced control systems. The current research activities include
development and demonstration projects of distributed power generation
based on wind, photovoltaic, small hydro, micro gas turbine and fuel
cell systems, funded by NSERC, SDTC, AIF, NRCan, NBIF, and industry
In collaboration with industry and other institutions, the group has
formed a broad-based research network in the areas of environmental
design engineering. The group also provides training of research-based
Ph.D. and M.Sc. programs, and course-based M.Eng. in environmental

Currently there are 4 faculties, 1 postdoctoral fellow, 9 Ph.D.
students, and 12 MScE students in the group.
The Sustainable Power Group
provides undergraduate and graduate courses in the areas of electrical
machinery, power electronics, environmental design engineering, and
communications through the Department of Electrical and Computer
Engineering. For details, read more

The group focuses on the research
of electrical machines and power electronics, including finite element
analysis and design, generalized electric machines, electrical drives,
power converters, advanced controls, and signal processing as well as
wireless communications; research activities are intensively
involved in distributed power generations (DG), renewable energy
systems, electrical vehicle propulsions, and other industrial
applications. For recent publications and projects, read more
