Dr. Weixiang Shen is a Professor at School of Software and Electrical Engineering, Swinburne University of Technology, Melbourne, Australia. Professor Shen’s research interests are (1) battery applied research and control strategy for electric vehicles (EVs), including battery capacity estimation, state of health, state of power, fault diagnosis, charging strategy, battery sorting and balancing, battery safety under impact, battery energy and thermal management as well as EV control, (2) integration of EVs and renewable energy systems (e.g. solar photovoltaic systems and wind systems) into conventional power systems, including the smart use of EV batteries as an energy storage system in power systems (e.g. smart grid) and the analysis and improvement of system stability for power systems integrated with renewable energy systems. He is a principal investigator or co-investigator for many projects funded by Australian Research Council, Australian Cooperation Automotive Research Centre, Victorian government, Federal government and industries with the total grant of USA$1,500,000. In these areas, he has published more than 110 journal papers, one monograph "Advanced battery management technologies for electric vehicles" and a few book chapters.
Professor Shen is an Associate Editor of IET Power Electronics, Editor Board Member of Journal of Energy Storage and founding Board Member of journal Vehicles. He guest-edited several special issues for Applied Energy, Energy and Journal of Cleaner Production, etc. He has also served as a conference organizing committee member, session chair and track chair for a few international conferences, such as The IEEE International Conference on Industrial Electronics and Applications (ICIEA). He was a general chair of the International Conference on Energy, Ecology and Environment (ICEEE2018) held in Melbourne, Australia, 2018.
