A paper by S&T electrical engineering researchers was selected as one of the Best Conference Papers (top 3%) at the general meeting of the Power and Energy Society of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) in July.

The paper is titled “Sizing Energy Storage System for Energy Arbitrage in Extreme Fast Charging Station.” Authors are:

  • Waqas ur Rehman, Ph.D. candidate in electrical engineering
  • Dr. Rui Bo, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering
  • Hossein MehdipourPicha, Ph.D. Candidate in electrical engineering
  • Dr. Jonathan Kimball, professor of electrical and computer engineering.

More than 1,000 papers are submitted annually to the conference and after a rigorous review process, 60-80 (the number varies each year) are included in the best paper program. For the 2021 conference, only 32 were selected (about top 3% of the total submissions).

This work was done as part of the project “Missouri S&T researchers win multimillion dollar grant to build fast-charging stations for electric cars” and is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) under Grant DE-EE0008449.
