Philip A. Commins received the B.E. degree (Hons.) in mechatronics , in 2006 and completed the Ph.D. degree in high precision tubular linear motors in 2013 from The University of Wollongong, Wollongong, Australia. In 2011, he joined the Fault Current Limiter Research Group, University of Wollongong, as a Full Time Research Fellow, focusing on the modeling, optimizing, designing, and experimentally testing saturated core fault current limiters (FCLs). His work has included extensive magnetic modeling of saturated core FCLs using 3D finite-element-analysis techniques. In 2014 he joined the electric vehicle research group with an ARC discovery project, pursuing drive-by-wire research. This involves research with 4 in-wheel motors, steer by wire and brake by wire.
