Dr Qiteng Hong


Electronic and Electrical Engineering


Personal statement

Dr Qiteng Hong is currently a Reader at the University of Strathclyde. His main research focus is on novel solutions for monitoring, protection and control of future power systems dominated by renewable generation. He received his BEng (Hons) degree in electronic and electrical engineering as the top graduate of the year in 2011 and his PhD in electrical engineering (fully funded by National Grid) in 2015, both from the University of Strathclyde.

Dr Hong has over 70 publications in international journals and conferences, along with 3 book chapters.  He is also the main developer for 4 prototype software tools, with the LGMVP online open platform (https://livegridmvp.herokuapp.com/) being the first of its kind in the UK, attracting 12k+ visits from 42 countries per year. He is the Co-Guest Editor-in-Chief of the special issue on the operation of zero-carbon power system in International Journal of Electrical Power & Energy Systems, a guest editor for the Energies journal in the special issue on Protection of Future Electricity Systems, and a regular reviewer for 16 leading international journals.

Dr Hong received the Best Paper Award in the IEEE APAP conference in 2019. He played a leading role from Strathclyde in the execution of the EFCC project (£9.6M), which was shortlisted for the Best Innovation Award by Scottish Renewables and the Project Award by British Renewable Energy Awards in 2018. Dr Hong was also awarded the highly prestigious IET prize in 2011 for his outstanding academic performance and he was the recipient of the John Moyes Lessells Scholarship by the Royal Society of Edinburgh in 2013, which supported his visit to Hong Kong Polytechnic University. He was also a senior visiting scholar in Tsinghua University between 2018-2019 in China.

Dr Hong has strong engagement with professional organisations, and has been an invited speaker for 20+ conferences, seminars and prestigious universities, a member of various technical committees/working groups for 5 leading organisations, and the chair or main organiser for 10+ international/national prestigious events. Notably, he is a member of IEEE Working Group (WG) P2004, IEEE Task Force on Cloud-Based Control and Co-Simulation of Multi-Party Resources in Energy Internet, and was the only UK Regular Member in the CIGRE WG B5.50. He is the UK representative in the International Executive Committee for CIGRE Next Generation Networks (NGN), and he also led the international NGN webinar preprogramme between 2020-2021, where 13 events were held in by NGN groups from 8 countries.

For teaching activities, Dr Hong is current the Deputy Director for the MSc Programme on Electrical Power and Energy Systems. He has been involved with the development and delivery of teaching for 4 undergraduate and postgraduate classes at Strathclyde, 3 modules with partner universities (Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, North China Electric Power University and Shanghai University of Electrical Power) and 1 module in Strathclyde’s two centres for doctoral training (CDTs).

Dr Hong is Senior Member of IEEE and a Member of IET.
