Jeff Moscrop received the B.E. (Hons.) and Ph.D. degrees from the
University of Wollongong, in 1998 and 2008 respectively. He is currently a Senior Lecturer with the School of Electrical, Computer and Telecommunications Engineering at the University of Wollongong.
Since the year 2000 he has been involved in the design and
development of complex experimental test-beds for research purposes,
including linear servo-motor test-beds, magnetically impelled arc butt
welding test-beds and high temperature superconducting test-beds. In 2008 he set-up a
Fault Current Limiter (FCL) research group at the University of Wollongong, along with Australia's first dedicated FCL testing facility (which tests small and medium scale FCL designs, at voltages up to 1 kV). In 2009 he coordinated the first high-power fault tests of a Saturated Core FCL in Australia at Ausgrid’s Lane Cove Testing Station. He has also been directly involved in commercial FCL designs and overseas testing of commercial FCLs (in both North America and Europe).
Throughout his academic career, Dr Moscrop has been actively involved in working closely with industry. In the area of saturated core FCLs he has directly generated in excess of $3 million cash income for the University of Wollongong, through both industry contracts and competitive government grants. In 2014 his FCL research group became a part of the Australian Power Quality and Reliability Centre.
