Research Projects


Capacitively coupled cables for transmision and distribution of electrical power
Funder: Innovate UK
Duration: October 2017 - March 2019

This project, which is supported by Innovate UK, will build on already demonstrated technological approach by carrying out industrial research and development between Brunel University and ENERTECHNOS Ltd in collaboration with Eland Cables Ltd and TWI to explore, design and develop Capacitive Transmission Cable (CTC)

Intelligent Infrastructures for Sustainable and Resilient Future Energy Systems
Funder: British Council
Duration: February 2017 - January 2018

The workshop provided a research framework in intelligent energy systems to establish collaborative programs between academia and industry targeting both UK and Turkey. It also facilitated the cooperation and discussion between the participating institutions. This will continue beyond the workshop to provide a useful forum to exchange ideas and develop effective collaboration programs between participants and industry at international level. Personally, organising this workshop has improved my coordination and project management skills. Furthermore, I have had the chance to engage in interesting discussions with participants that may lead to future research. Over four days, the researchers from the UK and Turkey working on different aspects of smart grids showcased their work, discussed cutting-edge research and we all explored how our strengths could be matched for future collaborations. I am expecting this outcome to enhance not only the participants’, but also my research profile.

Non-Active Power Compensators: Implementations and Implications
Funder: Royal Academy of Engineering
Duration: October 2015 - October 2016
