Dr. Lijun He is a lead engineer – Electrical Monitoring & Diagnostics at GE Research, Niskayuna NY. Dr. He has 6 years of industry experience in physics-based modeling, control, condition monitoring and diagnostics of electric assets including electric machines, mechanical drivetrains, transformers, and converters, especially for renewable, electric grid, and aviation applications. While working at GE Research, Dr. He has led the effort to develop the world’s first successful remote monitoring/diagnostics solution to detect pitch bearing failure in MW-scale onshore wind turbines, which helped drive $20MM in productivity for GE Onshore Renewable Business in 2017.
In addition, Dr. He has significantly contributed to monitoring and diagnostics analytics for both GE Haliade 150-6MW offshore wind turbine Haliade-X 12MW-220 offshore wind turbine - world’s largest offshore wind turbine, including monitoring, diagnostics, prognostics, and life extension for critical electric assets to enhance offshore wind turbine reliability and reduce operation and maintenance cost.
Dr. He is a Senior Member of IEEE. Dr He is currently serving as Associate Editor for IEEE Transaction on Industry Applications, Secretary for IEEE Standard Working Group1812 – On Guidance for Testing Permanent Magnet Machines, Secretary for CIGRE Standard Working Group A1.45 – Guide for Determining the Health index of Large Electric Motors, and Vice chair of IEEE IAS chapter at Schenectady Section. Dr. He has authored 18 peer-reviewed articles in IEEE journals and conference proceedings, and filed 5 US patents. Dr. He has also been invited to review various IEEE journals and conferences. Dr. He has a B.Eng degree from Tsinghua University in China, and M.S and Ph.D. degrees from Georgia Institute of Technology in USA, all in electrical engineering.
The interdisciplinary nature of GE Research offers me excellent opportunities to work with and learn from colleagues outside of my domain.
