ABB China Research Institute becomes ABB's most important R & D base

this year marks the tenth anniversary of the founding of ABB China Research Institute. In the past ten years, China has become one of the most important R & D bases of ABB in the world. At present, numerous top ABB products come from Chinese technology R & D teams

careful readers will find the special position of Chinese power in ABB's global R & D system by comparing such a set of data. Last year, the global power and automation technology giant had a global sales revenue of about US $40billion. Its number of employees in China was 19000, accounting for 13.6% of the world's 140000 employees; The sales revenue in China is US $5.8 billion, accounting for 14.5% of its global sales revenue. All experimental operations can be carried out in the main computer interface. ABB has more than 2000 R & D personnel in China, accounting for 25% of its more than 8500 R & D personnel worldwide

China has become one of ABB's most important R & D bases in the world. More and more new products and technologies developed by ABB's Chinese team have entered the global mainstream market. Claes rytot, chief technology officer of the group, said in Beijing a few days ago

what causes the group's R & D team to tilt towards the Chinese market

the chief technology officer of ABB group attributed it to the attractiveness of the market and a good education system

in a word, in order to respond to the numerous personalized needs of China's rapidly developing power market and automation market, the company led them to proactively lay out research and development in the fields of power technology, robotics and so on, solve users' needs and provide solutions for users

the first group ABB established in China ten years ago was the power system research group. At almost the same time, the company chose to establish a robot laboratory in Shanghai

as one of the seven global R & D centers of ABB group, abb China Research Institute was established in early 2005

at present, the Institute has set up a power electronics laboratory, a materials and insulation laboratory, a processing laboratory in Beijing and Shanghai. China's food contact materials and products will enter a new period of new regulations and standards, an environmental laboratory and an electromechanical laboratory. It focuses on technical research in new energy, outdoor insulation, small parts assembly and so on. At present, it has applied for nearly 200 international patents in total. In machinery, control It plays a leading role in basic scientific research and innovation in the fields of materials and power electronics

what are the main achievements of ABB China Research Institute in its 10th anniversary? On this issue, Dr. liuqianjin, head of ABB China Research Institute and chief technical officer of ABB (China) Co., Ltd., said:

in the five years from its establishment in 2005 to 2010, China Research Institute has been exploring, building contacts and establishing a technical platform. The outstanding achievement here is to be responsible for the system analysis of the world's first project using 800 kV HVDC transmission technology. In addition, the product development of ABB's six axis robot dragon irb120, which is the fastest and most accurate in the world, is mainly carried out by the Shanghai team with the assistance of R & D teams from other countries

in the past five years, abb China Research Institute has developed faster and made more and more achievements. For example, last year, the acs580mv medium voltage inverter, the new small robot irb1200 that meets the stringent requirements of modern material handling and loading and unloading, and the upgrade package were all developed in China and then promoted globally

liuqianjin especially mentioned the global projects directly and deeply participated in by his Chinese Research Institute, such as Yumi, the world's first dual arm industrial robot that truly realizes human-computer cooperation, and the extruded high-voltage DC 525 kV cable system. He believes that the Institute has realized the capability improvement from point to area. Compared with any other country, including the mature R & D team, abb China Research Institute has no shortage

when talking about the direction of future efforts, liuqianjin frankly said that ABB's seven research institutes around the world will not carry out research in all core fields. He said that at present, the Chinese Academy of Sciences has chosen the following nine fields, namely, machinery, control, sensors, communication, software, switches, materials, power electronics and electromagnetism, as its focus

he said that what we need to do is to practice our internal skills well and truly achieve a cutting-edge and high level in the focused technical field. I think we should more predict and promote the change of industry trend, and turn this trend and challenge into a kind of technical strength of ABB in the world. At the dawn of the dream, abb will bring sustainable value and rich returns to customers

speaking of the goal of the next decade, it is to become a top-level research center. There is still more work to be done to add "constant stress (n/min)" of regular experimental force within 1 minute

abb China Research Institute in the past decade, liuqianjin believes that the key lies in talents, especially innovative scientific and technological talents

he said that abb China Research Institute has trained the first senior director researcher, and more such talents are needed in the future. The doctor hopes that these talents not only have strong technical ability, but also have strong leadership, so that they can promote the ability of R & D centers internationally, but also promote ABB's influence in the whole industry from a point and an area

note: liuqianjin: chief technology officer of ABB China and head of ABB China Research Institute

the 41 year old Liu Qianjin's career is almost accompanied by the germination, birth, development and expansion of ABB's R & D in China. In the summer of 2002, he received a doctor's degree in electrical engineering from Tsinghua University. In the same year, he entered ABB (China) Co., Ltd. to engage in research and development of HVDC and flexible transmission. Five years later, in 2007, he became the manager of the power system Department of ABB R & D center. He took up his current position in 2010

his ideal now is to lead the team to lead the transformation from made in China to China with more new technologies and products
