S&T’s upgraded power lab is more reliable and gives students opportunities to work on industry-standard equipment, thanks to a donation from St. Louis-based Nidec Motor Corp. Pictured is Waqas ur Rehman. Michael Pierce/Missouri S&T

Waqas ur Rehman, a doctorate student in electrical engineering, won first place at the 2022 Missouri S&T Graduate Poster Contest. He was one of 28 participants and won a prize of $200. His poster was titled “Multi-layered Framework for Energy Management of Extreme Fast Charging Stations for Electric Vehicles.”

Rehman’s work proposes a novel energy management system for the optimized real-time operation of extreme fast charging stations by considering energy arbitrage, monthly demand charges, battery storage life degradation and forecast uncertainties. He is advised by Dr. Rui Bo, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering.

This work is part of the $2.9 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy to develop an extreme fast-charging system for electric cars. Read more about the project on news.mst.edu.
