Research summary

My longstanding interest in analogue and power electronics has proved an ideal background to support a varied portfolio of research projects ranging from More Electric Aircraft technologies to environmental sensing and from structural health monitoring to energy harvesting. The common theme running through my research is the efficient manipulation of electrical energy: an important consideration whether dealing with a 200kW aircraft generator or a 1μW energy harvester. The continued advances in switched-mode power circuit architectures and components are enabling new applications such as the electrical actuation of aircraft flight control surfaces, or adaptive, power autonomous vibration suppression. I particularly enjoy ...

Dr. Steve Burrow received his PhD in 2002 from the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, University of Bristol for work on the modelling of interactions between electromagnetic loudspeakers and switched mode amplifiers.  He remained in the department, researching novel machines and drive topologies for aircraft generator applications before moving to the Department of Aerospace Engineering in 2004 to lecture on Avionic Systems. He was promoted to Reader in 2012, and currently coordinates avionics teachings within the Aerospace Engineering department and is also an admissions tutor for home students. He manages a team of researchers encompassing a range of ...
