Prof. Songgang Qiu
West Virginia University, USA
Biography: Prof. Qiu has extensive experiences in the analysis and design of power generator, gas and liquid fuel burners, and heat exchangers. He is currently working on the development of a SOLID FUEL BURNER. This burner is to be used to gasify supplied charcoal, combusts and transfers heat to a Stirling engine for power generation. He is also developing an advanced Stirling generator for combined heating and power generation under a DOE ARPA-E grant. Dr. Qiu has served as PI for numerous research projects funded by DOE, DoD (Army, Navy, Air Force) and NASA. He was the prime designer of an Advanced Radioisotope Stirling Generator (ARSG) for NASA/DOE. He is the lead inventor of 9 issued US patents.
