Yujing Liu

Full Professor, Electrical engineering


After 17 years working in ABB Corporate Research with the last position of Senior Principal Scientist, Yujing Liu became full professor in 2013 on electrical power engineering at Chalmers with focus on the applications of electrical machines and power electronics in sustainable electrical systems. Yujing Liu leads his research team to develop innovative and cost-effective solutions for renewable energy conversion and transportation electrification. Some examples of on-going research include (1) electrically-excited machine; (2) integrated PE-machine drive; (3) fuel cell powered drivetrain; (4) modular distributed vehicle drive; (5) 5-level MV NPC converter and generator for renewable power; (6) synchronous reluctance motor; and (7) electrified drive for vessels; and (8) inductive charging (3.7 kW to 200 kW). He is Chalmers' project leader in 2 EU Horizon2020 projects. He teaches the course "Electrical Machines: Design and Analysis" for 80 master students and the PhD course "High Efficiency Electrical Machines" for 26 students. Now he supervises 1 postdoc, 9 PhD students, 2 project researcher and several master students. In 2018 he was appointed as the Head of Unit for Electrical Machines and Power Electronics at Dept. of Electrical Engineering at Chalmers.
