Dr Andrew Roscoe

Senior Lecturer

Electronic and Electrical Engineering

Personal statement

Dr. Andrew Roscoe is the lecturer in Smart Grid Integration at the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, Strathclyde University.

His active research interests include:

  • Measurement algorithms for phasors, power flows and AC system parameters. Power quality assessment. The metrology of ROCOF.
  • Converter control algorithms within converter-dominated AC power systems, microgrids, marine and aero power systems. Understanding and dealing with the interactions between power quality, faults, inertia, frequency management, dynamic power sharing and energy transfer/storage.
  • Power hardware-in-the-loop and real-time simulation techniques.
  • Demand response, and the integration of electric vehicles. Dealing with stochastic renewable generation via demand response, storage, vehicle-to-grid, and reserve capacity.

Andrew J. Roscoe received the B.A. and M.A. degree in Electrical and Information Sciences Tripos at Pembroke College, Cambridge, England in 1991 & 1994. Andrew worked for GEC Marconi from 1991 to 1995, where he was involved in antenna design and calibration, specialising in millimetre wave systems and solid-state phased-array radars. Andrew worked from 1995 to 2003 with Hewlett Packard and subsequently Agilent Technologies, in the field of microwave communication systems, specialising in the design of test and measurement systems for personal mobile and satellite communications. Since 2004, Andrew has been working at the University of Strathclyde in the field of power systems, microgrid management, and the integration of renewables. Andrew is currently the lecturer in Smart Grid Integration at the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, Strathclyde University.

Andrew has been a chartered engineer (CEng) since 1996.


Has expertise in:

    • Measurement algorithms for phasors, power flows and AC system parameters.
    • Converter-dominated and islanded AC power systems.
    • Power hardware-in-the-loop and real-time simulation techniques.
