Dr. Emerson Guest

Principal Power Systems Engineer

Emerson maintains a wealth of renewable energy power systems experience through his work in switchyard and substation design, technology  development for grid-connected converters, PSS/E and PSCAD model development for renewable generators, and grid compliance studies for renewable energy power plants.

After completing an Electrical Engineering degree in Newcastle, NSW in 2010, Emerson's focus on renewable energy narrowed in 2013 with commencement at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU); an epicentre for the development of converter-based renewable energy sources and the birthplace of commercialised wind power. Emerson has since completed a PhD with Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy and solved a multitude of complex grid issues, from forensic analysis of real world stability issues, to assisting developers and system operators achieve grid connection world-wide.
