Professor Dan Rogers completed an MEng (2007) in the Electrical and Electronic Engineering Department and then a PhD (2011) in the Control and Power Group, both at Imperial College London. Following this, he
was a Lecturer and then Senior Lecturer in the CIREGS group in the School of Engineering at Cardiff University.
Dan joined Oxford in 2016 and is now an Associate Professor in the Department of Engineering Science. His research is focused on electrical power conversion and power systems, including power electronics, energy storage, microgrids and smart grids.
Dan's research group develops power electronics technology for grid, industry and transport. The group works across the broad area of circuits, systems and control in power electronics, ranging from large-scale modular multi-level energy storage systems, high speed control and communication for resilient microgrids, down to energy harvesting at the microwatt level.
Current areas of work are:
Power electronics is a key enabling technology for future grids and transport systems. The group therefore works closely with colleagues in power systems, the transport sector and industry in the UK and internationally.
Tough, flexible and low cost power converters and control schemes for autonomous DC microgrids to be deployed in developing countries.
Trialling new technology for grid-connected large-scale modular energy storage systems.
Development of multi-input power electronics systems for energy harvesting from novel radiation-powered sensors.
Part of a large consortium bringing together energy storage research facilities in the UK.
Development of highspeed communication and control schemes for future building-scale DC microgrids. Also including the development of low-parts-count DC-DC converters for microgrids.
