Simon Heslop

School of Photovoltaics and Renewable Energy Engineering

Simon is a Senior Research Associate in CEEM and at the School for Photovoltaic and Renewable Energy Engineering at UNSW. Simon's skillset and knowledge covers DER integration in LV networks, distribution network operation, as well as power flow analysis, energy control algorithms and optimisation, and energy data analysis. His PhD was on Facilitating the Technical Network Integration of Distributed PV Generation. His main research interests are all things DER related, both at the customer and network side. Simon favours applied research, linking academic with industry. Simon is an experienced electrical control engineer, having worked in both heavy industry and as a consultant for the electricity industry, primarily in SE Asia.
