Professor Peter A. Crossley joined the University of Manchester as Professor of Power Systems in 2006, and became Director of the Joule Centre for Energy Research in 2008,. The Centre aims to stimulate interdisciplinary research and development in the energy sector and to increase regional R&D capacity in the disciplines and skills required for a sustainable energy future. He was previously Professor of Electrical Engineering at Queen’s University. Professor Crossley’s industrial and academic career relates to the control of electrical power systems, the Prof. Peter A. Crossley impact of distributed/intermitted generators on electrical networks and the design and use of renewable energy systems and smart grids. Professor Crossley is the author of two books, 75 Journal papers and 150 International Conference papers. In addition he is a visiting Professor at Shandong University, Convenor of CIGRE Working Group on Management of Relay Settings, a Member of the Greater Manchester Energy Advisory Group and an advisor to Electricity North West on Smart Grids. In the recent past, Professor Crossley was Chair of the IET Developments in Power System Protection Conference, Vice-Chair & Chair of IEEE Power Engineering UK, Technical Chairman of NPTC Power System Protection Conference and keynote speaker at numerous conferences and symposiums. Professor Crossley holds a PhD degree in power system protection from Cambridge University and began his career as Project Engineer and Research Manager for GEC Alstom.
