Jonathan and Wanghao were awarded a best paper/presentation award for the paper titled “Bifurcation Analysis of Weak Electrical Grids Considering Different Load Representations,” in Proc. 2019 IEEE 7th International Conference on Smart Energy Grid Engineering (SEGE), Oshawa, ON, Canada, 2019, pp. 208-212.

Congratulations on the excellent team effort.

Professor Saifur Rahman visits LEEPS

Professor Rahman visited the LEEPS facility at The University of Oklahoma on March 1 2019.

Professor Rahman is the founding director of the Advanced Research Institute at Virginia Tech, USA where he is the Joseph R. Loring professor of electrical and computer engineering. He also directs the Center for Energy and the Global Environment He is a Life Fellow of the IEEE and an IEEE Millennium Medal winner. He is the President of the IEEE Power and Energy Society (PES). He was the founding editor-in-chief of the IEEE Electrification Magazine and the IEEE Transactions on Sustainable Energy. In 2006 he served on the IEEE Board of Directors as the vice president for publications. He is a distinguished lecturer for the IEEE Power & Energy Society and has lectured on renewable energy, energy efficiency, smart grid, electric power system operation and planning, etc. in over 30 countries. He served as the chair of the US National Science Foundation Advisory Committee for International Science and Engineering from 2010 to 2013. He has conducted several energy efficiency related projects for Duke Energy, Tokyo Electric Power Company, the US Department of Defense, the State of Virginia and the U.S. Department of Energy.

Arrival of 100 kW Semikron Power Converter

A new addition to the laboratory is the 100 kW ac-dc-ac Semikron Power Converter. This device will enable reconfigurable testbeds for testing electromagnetic transient phenomena and dynamics in weak grids with distributed energy resources. Thanks to our students for helping with its installation into the facility.

Laboratory expansion

The first phase of the laboratory on the 2nd floor is completed with commissioning in June 2018 and currently has several active research experiments.  The Gallogly College of Engineering has recently approved plans for further expansion of the laboratory into the ground floor of the high bay facility.  The new space will undergo renovations for new work benches, security fencing and various high-power machinery and power system testbeds.

Renovations will commence in the Fall of 2018 and is expected to be completed mid Spring of 2019.  The expanded lab will also be used for integrated teaching and research for power engineering curriculum development.

Ford Foundation Fellowships (predoctoral, dissertation and post-doc)

Through its Fellowship Programs, the Ford Foundation seeks to increase the diversity of the nation’s college and university faculties by increasing their ethnic and racial diversity, to maximize the educational benefits of diversity, and to increase the number of professors who can and will use diversity as a resource for enriching the education of all students.

Predoctoral, Dissertation, and Postdoctoral fellowships will be awarded in a national competition administered by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine on behalf of the Ford Foundation.

Eligibility to apply for a Ford fellowship is limited to:

  • All U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals, and U.S. permanent residents (holders of a Permanent Resident Card), as well as individuals granted deferred action status under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program1, political asylees, and refugees, regardless of race, national origin, religion, gender, age, disability, or sexual orientation,
  • Individuals with evidence of superior academic achievement (such as grade point average, class rank, honors or other designations), and
  • Individuals committed to a career in teaching and research at the college or university level.1Eligibility includes individuals with current status under the DACA Program, as well as individuals whose status may have lapsed but who continue to meet all the USCIS guidelines for DACA available here.

Receipt of the fellowship award is conditioned upon each awardee providing satisfactory documentation that he or she meets the eligibility requirements.

Awards will be made for study in research-based Ph.D. or Sc.D. programs; practice oriented degree programs are not eligible for support (see eligible fields). Prospective applicants should read carefully the eligibility requirements, the terms of the fellowship awards, application instructions and other information pertaining to the individual fellowship (Predoctoral, Dissertation, or Postdoctoral) for which they are applying.

In addition to the fellowship award, Ford Fellows are eligible to attend the Conference of Ford Fellows, a unique national conference of a select group of high-achieving scholars committed to diversifying the professoriate and using diversity as a resource for enriching the education of all students.

Eligible individuals who are interested in applying to work in my lab, please contact Dr. Paul Moses (see contact info on webpage).

OU Power and Energy Systems Workshop – April 20, 2018

Announcement: Technical Updates on Power and Energy Systems

Brochure: 2018 OU Power and Energy Systems Workshop

An all-day workshop is being held at OU on various technical developments in the power and energy systems field.  Please see flyer for registration details.  OU students can attend without having to register or pay.

This one-day technical workshop is intended to provide an update on several frontier issues impacting the development of distributed energy resources and microgrids from a grid resiliency and security perspective. Five speakers will provide technical updates on various technologies related to microgrids, distributed energy resources, energy management, protection and control.  People who are interested in these emerging issues and technologies, including engineers, regulators and policy makes, will benefit from the technical updates and discussions at the workshop.

* Certificate of 0.5 Continuing Education Credits (CEU) will be issued by University OUTREACH, OU College of Continuing Education
