About

Professor Yunting Ge has got more than 20 years research and development experience in Built Environment, Energy Conversation Technology and Renewables. He has unique skills on modelling development for buildings, different energy systems and components such as supermarket energy control system model ‘SuperSIM’ which has been recognized worldwide. He has also developed a CO2 transcritical compressor model which has been used by a famous commercial software ‘Energy Plus’. Some of his developed heat exchanger design software have been utilised by a number of companies in the UK. The EPSRC & Innovate UK funded research projects on ‘ Power generation with waste heat and advanced thermodynamic power cycles’ are innovative. As a principal investigator (PI), he has obtained over £1 m research funding to support his various research projects. So far , he has supervised 9 PhD students and a number of post-doctoral research fellows. Furthermore, He has published over 110 peer reviewed scientific journal and conference papers.
