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
Emhemed, Abdullah (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).

Transactive Energy Supply Arrangements (ESC - P2P Energy)
Galloway, Stuart (Principal Investigator) Irvine, James (Co-investigator)
"In recent years there has been a huge investment in micro generation from both customers and small scale providers, particularly in residential PV. However, current metering arrangements are very basic, which limits the effectiveness of this investment.

If there was provision for neighbours to trade energy directly with each other, and be compensated for doing so, the true potential of this investment would be unlocked. Identifying the biggest issues for small scale energy providers is challenge, facilitating micro payments, more representative billing algorithms and time of day pricing would allow a provider to sell energy to local end-users.

The inclusion of energy storage could play a key role in developing a low-carbon energy systems, bringing flexibility and providing back-up to intermittent renewable generation sources. Understanding how storage is to be used locally would improve the management of distribution networks, reduce costs and improve efficiencies, supporting grid decarbonisation and off-setting the need for costly network investment.

Our research will inform on the obstacles and enablers for future energy supply arrangements at the local, decentralised and neighbourhood scales. Transacting directly with end users and producers deep down in the utility networks in an economically viable manner is currently a significant business and technological challenge with not all barriers well understood.

Through cross disciplinary research the TESA project will landscape the social, technical, regulatory, and design pathways to enable the future supply of energy to customers that will further stimulate investment in electricity generation both from small scale providers and customers themselves, reducing the nation's demands for large scale infrastructure investments."
