Maximilian J. Zangs
I love engineering, especially the electronic kind
Received my MEng in Electronic Engineering at the University of Reading in 2013. Subsequently I spent 10 months in Scottland at the University of Edinburgh with the IDCORE program focusing on offshore renewable energy. This lead into a 3 months placement at DNV GL (London) to work towards a certification standard for wave energy converters. Now I am undertakeing my PhD in Electronic Engineering back at the University of Reading.
Funded by the New Thames Valley Vision Project, my PhD focuses on intelligent control and optimisation of distribution networks with high penetration of energy storage and generation. Particular research emphasis is put on smart agents, reactive power management and the impact of electric vehicle deployment.
