Tao Yang
Associate Professor

Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering ,  University of Nottingham, UK

Tao Yang (IET Fellow, Industrial Fellow of RAEng) received the M.Eng Degree from Shanghai Jiao Tong University, China in 2008 and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Nottingham, UK in 2013. His PhD research within EU Clean Sky on ’Modelling electrical power system for more-electric aircraft applications’ has resulted in him winning the inaugural Clean Sky Best PhD Award in 2016. Since 2013, he has been a Researcher with Power Electronics, Machines and Control Group, University of Nottingham, where he became an Assistant Professor in 2016, and an Associate Professor in 2019. His research interests include high-speed electric motor drive control, power electronic conversion, electrical system design and optimization for more electric/hybrid/all-electric aircraft applications. Dr. Tao Yang is the Chair of Aerospace Power Technical Committee within IEEE Power Electronic Society.


Serhiy Bozhko

Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering ,  University of Nottingham, UK

Prof Serhiy Bozhko received the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in electromechanical systems from the National Technical University of Ukraine, Kyiv City, Ukraine, in 1987 and 1994, respectively. Since 2000, he has been with the Power Electronics, Machines, and Controls Research Group, The University of Nottingham, United Kingdom, where he is currently a Professor leading several EU and industry-funded projects in the area of aircraft electric power systems, including control, power quality and stability issues, power management and optimization, and advanced modelling and  simulation methods.


Our Research group is based in Aerospace Technology Centre (ATC) and Power Electronics Machine and Control Centre, Nottingham. We are focusing on developing technologies aiming for Net-Zero Aviation, especially in the following area:

  • Power Generation

  • Power Conversion

  • Power Distribution

  • System Level Studies
