He is now a foreign academician of the National Academy of Engineering of the United States.

He has long been engaged in the research of power system analysis methods. In the 1970s, he began to study the mathematical models and calculation methods of modern power system analysis. Presided over the development of China's first set of "power system analysis comprehensive program" large-scale software, widely used in power systems throughout the country. Over the past 30 years, he has participated in or presided over a number of research on key technologies of large-scale ultra-high voltage transmission system engineering in China. In China's first 330kV ultra-high voltage transmission line project, the first ±500kV high voltage transmission line project and other power system engineering proposed and adopted new analytical models, calculation methods and key technologies. In the 1990s, he began the research of new flexible AC transmission system, presided over key projects such as controllable series compensation of ultra-high voltage transmission system, and devoted himself to studying the application of power electronics technology and modern control theory to power system to meet the requirements of the development of power system in the 21st century.
