Euan McGill

Euan is a PhD student at the EPECentre, with the GREEN Grid project. His research focuses on different strategies which can be adopted to ensure adequate power quality is maintained, in the presence of ever increasing distributed generation, on low voltage distribution networks. He is conducting experimental trials within the laboratory to test the capabilities of these different mitigation devices, using a representative distribution network testbed.  Results from these trials, alongside economic appraisal of the different technologies, will help distribution companies identify the most effective solutions in facilitating the transition towards projected distributed generation scenarios. Euan completed a Master of Engineering in Electrical & Electronic Engineering with International Study, with distinction, at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, Scotland in 2016.
