Before the report, Professor Chen jiawei first took Professor Giampaolo Buticchi to visit the laboratory related to professor Giampaolo Buticchi's research direction in the School of Automation, and the head of the laboratory introduced the current research trends. Then I took Professor Giampaolo Buticchi to know about other key research directions and projects of the School of Automation. Both sides had a certain academic discussion and benefited a lot from each other.
Professor Giampaolo Buticchi gave an academic report entitled "On-board Microgrids for the More Electric Aircraft". Professor Giampaolo Buticchi first introduced the research background, opportunities and challenges of on-board micronets for multi-electric aircraft. Then, Professor Giampaolo Buticchi introduced the related research work of his research group in the on-board microgrid of multi-electric aircraft, such as power system structure, converter topology, power converter structure, etc., focusing on the control structure and stability analysis of the whole system. In addition, Professor Giampaolo Buticch provides useful advice and research directions for postgraduate and PhD students in related fields.
