Professor David Infield

Research Professor

Electronic and Electrical Engineering

Personal statement

I joined the University in 2007 as Professor in Renewable Energy Technologies.  Together with colleagues, a considerable wind energy research activity has been built up since then. Over the past five years I have been Manager of the Doctoral Training Centre in Wind Energy Systems, delivering four year PhDs with a considerable training element; this has now been extended into the Centre for Doctoral Training in Wind and Marine Energy Systems for which I play a leading managerial role.  My teaching is mainly to these Doctoral students although I also supervise Undergraduate and Masters student projects across a range of renewable energy related topics.

My main responsibility outside the University is as Editor in Chief of the IET’s Renewable Power Generation journal.

Research interests

My research interests are with electricity generation from renewable energy sources, in particular from wind and to a lesser extent photovoltaics (PV), and the integration of these sources into electricity systems large and small. Associated with this central challenge I take an interest in energy storage technology and application, and increasingly demand side management such as available through controlled charging of electric vehicles.  

Specific areas of research related to wind energy that I am presently active in include:

  • condition monitoring for large offshore turbines;
  • drive train analysis with an emphasis on improving reliability;
  • wind resource spatio-temporal modelling; and
  • power system support services such as frequency support from wind turbines.
