Prof. Chung received the B.Eng. degree (with First Class Honors) and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, China, in 1995 and 1999, respectively. He has worked for the University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, SK, Canada; Powertech Labs, Inc., Surrey, BC, Canada; the University of Alberta, Edmonton, AB, Canada; and The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong, China. His research interests include smart grid, micro grid, renewable energy, power system stability/control, planning and operation, applications of advanced optimization methods, power markets and electric vehicle charging.
Before rejoining the department, Prof. Chung was a Professor, the NSERC/SaskPower Senior Industrial Research Chair in Smart Grid Technologies, and the SaskPower Chair in Power Systems Engineering at the University of Saskatchewan. He was a prominent leader for advancing academic activities and applied research in power systems engineering development in the province of Saskatchewan. He led a research team, supported by SaskPower and NSERC of Canada, to conduct cutting-edge and long-term smart grid research for SaskPower and address critical technical issues associated with smart grid technologies and their applications to real power systems. His research work has not only generated 3 US patents, 3 book chapters and over 170 international journal papers, mostly in well-respected IEEE transactions and IET journals, but has also resulted in successful transference of three new commercial software packages developed for power system analysis. Software package “Small Signal Analysis Tool (SSAT)” developed by him is now being used by over 80 power companies and nearly 90 universities worldwide. He has provided consultancy services to both government agencies and well-known private companies. He is a Fellow of CAE, IEEE, EIC, IET and HKIE, and an IEEE PES Distinguished Lecturer. He is also the recipient of the 2021 IEEE Canada P. Ziogas Electric Power Award and 2021 Saskatoon Engineering Society (SES) Educator of the Year Award.
Prof. Chung has also been very active in professional societies. He was the Member-at-Large (Smart Grid) and Member-at-Large (Global Outreach) of IEEE PES Governing Board, the IEEE PES Region 10 North Chapter Representative, and a member of IEEE PES Fellow Evaluation Committee. He was the Past Chairman of the IEEE Hong Kong Section, IEEE Hong Kong Joint Chapter of PES/IAS/PELS/IES and IET Hong Kong PES. He was the General Chair of IEEE EPEC2017 and IEEE PES APPEEC2014, Co-Chair of IEEE TENCON2015, IEEE PES APPEEC2013 and IEEE ICHQP2012, Vice-Chairman of IET APSCOM 2015 and IET APSCOM2012, Technical Chairman of IET APSCOM2009, and Honorary Secretary of IEEE DRPT2004 and IEEE IAS 2005 Annual Meeting.
Prof. Chung is currently a Senior Editor of “IEEE Transactions on Power Systems”, a Consulting Editor of “IEEE Transactions on Sustainable Energy”, a Vice Editor-in-Chief of “Journal of Modern Power Systems and Clean Energy”, a Subject Editor of “IET Generation, Transmission & Distribution”, an Editor of “IEEE Power Engineering Letters”, and an Editorial Board Member of “Protection and Control of Modern Power Systems”.
