Research Interests

Dr Xiandong Ma is a Senior Lecturer in the Engineering Department at Lancaster University. He received his BEng in Electrical Engineering from Jiangsu University in 1986 and MSc in Power Systems and Automation in China State Grid Electric Power Research Institute (SGEPRI, formerly NARI) in 1989. He completed his PhD research in Partial Discharge based High-voltage Plant Condition Monitoring from Glasgow Caledonian University in 2002.

He worked with SGEPRI in Nanjing as Research Engineer and then Senior Research Engineer from 1989 to 1998, where he specialised in real-time power system simulation and instrumentation. He was a Visiting Research Engineer in RTDS Technologies Inc., Canada in 1996, developing new exciter model and investigating interface techniques for new RTDS-based test facilities. He worked as Postdoctoral Research Associate from 2002 to 2007 firstly at Lancaster University and then at The University of Manchester, developing new generations of electromagnetic tomographic imaging systems. Thereafter, he worked with ALSTOM Power in Stafford as Generator Condition Monitoring Engineer for 18 months before returning to Lancaster to take up his lectureship in December 2008.

His current research fields of interest include intelligent condition monitoring and fault diagnosis of distributed generation systems with wind turbines with emphasis on analytical and experimental investigation, modelling and simulation of distributed energy generation network, advanced signal processing, data mining and instrumentation, and electromagnetic NDT testing and imaging. He has published over 70 papers on refereed international journals, patents and conference proceedings.

Dr Ma is a Member of IET, a Chartered Engineer, a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA) and a Member of EPSRC Peer Review College.
