Phil has over 35 years of experiences in engineering and an impressive track record in senior roles, including the global head of Electrical Power and Control Systems at Rolls-Royce and Director of Engineering Excellence Group at the global construction giant Laing O'Rourke.
Phil was most recently executive chairman for The Centre for Modelling and Simulation, the successful digital technology joint venture between Airbus and Rolls-Royce. He is currently a board adviser for innovation at MACE, a £2-billion consultancy and construction company.
He developed, designed and delivered significant renewable energy, power transmission and distribution projects with ABB, ALSTOM, GE and AREVA across the globe, and lived in many countries including Brazil, China, Denmark, France, India, Sweden, the UK and Uruguay.
Syndem was selected to receive a $600,000 award from the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Energy Technologies Office (SETO) to advance solar systems integration technologies. This project will further develop its patented virtual synchronous machines technology to sharply increase the use of solar power.
In making the award, the Department of Energy recognized the Syndem technology as an essential advance to "better enable grid operators to add increasing amounts of solar generation onto the grid in a cost-effective, secure, resilient, and reliable manner." Syndem's converter technology will increase the use of solar power in homes and businesses by making it easier for grid operators to integrate much larger supplies of solar power into their networks, while also making solar systems more secure from cyberattack.
Syndem was selected as a part of the Solar Energy Technologies Office Fiscal Year 2019 funding program, an effort to invest in new projects that will lower solar electricity costs, while working to boost solar manufacturing, reduce red tape, and make solar systems more resilient to cyberattack. Other awardees include General Electric, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Georgia Institute of Technology, San Diego Gas & Electric, and the Electric Power Research Institute. In winning the award, Syndem establishes itself as a technology leader at the cutting edge of innovation rapidly transforming electrical generation and transport.
This home in Texas is powered by five SYNDEM smart inverters - four x 3 kW for solar panels and one x 3 kW for a wind turbine, and one x 3 kW Energy Bridge for grid interaction. They are connected together to form a home grid, making it a 100% power-electronic-converter-based grid. The home grid can autonomously regulate the frequency and voltage without relying on communication. There is no central controller either. The home grid can disconnect from the utility grid if there is a fault on the utility grid. When the utility grid is recovered, the SYNDEM Energy Bridge will automatically synchronize with and then connect to it, seamlessly. When it is disconnected from the utility grid, the home grid is 100% renewable. No more cyber-attacks.
SYNDEM is selected to receive a gift from K Tooling, a Southern Tier company, at the 2019 Start Up Summit organized by Koffman Southern Tier Incubator. This is a timely gift as SYNDEM has been looking for a lccal supplier for converter enclosures. K Tooling is a sub-contract manufacturer specializing in turn-key manufacturing from importing CAD design to delivering finished plated, painted, or powder coated machined or fabricated parts and assemblies by using the latest technologies in CAD/CAM, CNC machining, CNC fabrication, plastic injection molding, and zinc die-casting.
Funded by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), the Incubator strives to start, attract, and grow clean energy companies to drive economic growth and further Governor Andrew M. Cuomo's ambitious clean energy goals.

The 20th World Congress of the
International Federation of Automatic
Control (IFAC) held in Toulouse, France
during July 9-14 2017.
IFAC, founded in Paris in September 1957, is a worldwide multinational federation tasked with promoting the science and technology of automatic control in all systems, e.g. engineering, physical, biological, social and economic systems, in both theory and applications. IFAC is also concerned with the impact of control technologies on society. The IFAC World Congress is held triennially and is the Olympics in control and systems engineering. This year, it attracted 3,500 attendees from over 80 countries. Watch the recorded lecture on Youtube or here.
