Dr Callum MacIver

Research Fellow

Electronic and Electrical Engineering


Personal statement

I Received the M.Eng. degree in Electrical and Mechanical Engineering from the University of Strathclyde in 2010 before undertaking a Ph.D. degree as part of the university's Wind Energy Systems Centre for Doctoral Training. The PhD was titled "a reliability evaluation of offshore HVDC transmission network options".

I am now continuing my research in the field of offshore HVDC transmission systems exploring the technical, economic and regulatory barriers to their delivery within the UKERC Phase 3 - Theme 3 workstream.
