PolyU and Shenzhen Power Supply Bureau launch new innovation lab
PolyU’s Department of Building Services Engineering (BSE) has joined forces with Shenzhen Power Supply Bureau to establish China’s first lab combining grid systems and building electrical systems. The low voltage innovation laboratory platform was recently put into use in Shenzhen.
The laboratory, developed by BSE’s Associate Head Professor Du Yaping, Professor Chen Mingli and their research team, is being operated by the Futian Power Supply Bureau of Shenzhen in cooperation with the Department. It will enable the Shenzhen Power Supply Bureau and the China Southern Power Grid to conduct research and develop their own intelligent power distribution equipment independently, as well as address various safety issues in relation to the distribution and utilization of electricity. The research team will also work on related safety issues using the facilities in the laboratory.
