Khalid Umer, Dr.

Khalid Umer received a Bachelor’s Degree in Electrical Engineering with specialization in Power Systems from University of Engineering and Technology (UET) Lahore in 2013. He received a Master’s Degree (2016) and a Doctoral Degree (2021), both in Electronic Science and Technology form University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (UESTC). During his PhD, he worked with Sichuan State Provincial Laboratory of Power System Wide Area Measurement and Control on decentralized solutions for secure and efficient peer-to-peer energy trading in microgrids.

Since August 2022, he is a Research Associate with the Chair of Control Systems and Network Control Technology, Brandenburg Technical University (BTU). He is working on the project “ETHAN” under Centre for Hybrid Electric Systems Cottbus (CHESCO). It is a joint industrial project between Rolls-Royce Germany, BTU and 5 other partners and aims to develop control solutions for highly integrated electro-thermal systems of future electrified flight propulsion systems.

His main research interests are control and optimization techniques for secure and efficient future energy sytems.
