Professor Stuart Galloway

Electronic and Electrical Engineering

Personal statement

I joined the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering at Strathclyde in 1998, and am currently a Reader in Electrial and Electronic Engineering.

Based within the Advanced Electrical Systems group within the Institute for Energy and Environment (InstEE), I currently lead two research groups,
the first in Novel Electrical Systems and the second in Data Analytics. My research is concerned with multi-domain modelling of aircraft, marine
and micro-grid applications and the data analytics related to smart energy, smart grid and behavioural change.
As such, the research spans two of the defining themes of the University’s Technology and Innovation Centre, namely, Power & Energy and
Human & Social Aspects of Technology

I have been fully committed to and engaged with Departmental undergraduate and MSc course delivery for more than 10 years, accumulating extensive
experience of teaching, assessment, module design and course development at all levels.


Has expertise in:

    • Applied mathematical optimisation
    • Novel electrical systems
    • Electrical demand characterisation
    • Data analytics
    • Social and behavioural aspects of energy

LVDC Multi-disciplinary Workshop for GCRF Application
Emhmed, Abdoulha (Co-investigator) Galloway, Stuart (Principal Investigator)
The project conducted a three day in person multi-disciplinary and multi-stakeholder workshop. The workshop was organised to facilitate rich and detailed discussion on the challenges and targeted breakthroughs of a potential LVDC microgrids for electricity access in developing countries. This discussion was on the challenges facing: LVDC microgrid architectures appraisal and development of power management strategies; safety and protection solutions; societal needs and impact potential and appropriate delivery models for the development of LVDC microgrids in developing countries.
The workshop was held at the University of Strathclyde 19th-20th February 2018. It was attended by four UK partners and four international partners from four ODA listed countries. The partners from UK included University of Strathclyde, University of Loughborough, Open University and Aston University. From ODA countries, the participants involved VIT University (India), United International University (Bangladesh), Strathmore University (Kenya), and Meshpower Ltd (Rwanda).

Experimental Characterisation of Superconducting Cables (EPSRC Institutional Sponsorship Funding)
Jones, Catherine (Principal Investigator) Norman, Patrick (Co-investigator) Galloway, Stuart (Co-investigator)
Funded via EPSRC Institutional Sponsorship Funding (£18,215). This project was proposed to experimentally characterize the response of superconducting cables for a TeDP aircraft under fault conditions, enabling the validatation of existing models, underpinning the development of the electrical protection system. Experimental testing of superconducting power systems in this manner is challenging due to the specialist skills and equipment required, and no single research institution currently has this capability. However, there is a unique collaborative opportunity to combine the electrical fault emulation capability and fault management expertise at the University of Strathclyde with the superconducting cable design expertise and test facilities at the University of Bath (lead by Dr Weijia Yuan) to undertake this fundamental research. The initial study proposed aimed to pump-prime and enable positioning for a future, longer term collaborative project between the Universities of Bath and Strathclyde to extend the research to include different types of cables, quench recovery of cables and further failure mode studies.
