It is my great honor to receive the Siebel Scholar award. I would like to express my sincere appreciation to my supervisor, Prof. Yokoyama, laboratory students and my family who have supported me so far.
I will still continue to contribute my efforts regarding the area of multi-terminal VSC HVDC systems for the utilization of large-scale renewable energy sources to solve global energy issues.
