EECS faculty researchers look to repurpose older, but still useful, EV batteries to bolster the power grid.
Fred Wang and Hua Bai are developing breaker-related technology that could help improve electrified flight and increase the speed at which it is adopted.
Fred Wang led a recently concluded project that UT and Boeing conducted for NASA that explored a new, carbon-free means of electrified aircraft propulsion.
Fred Wang, UT’s Condra Chair of Excellence in Power Electronics, has been selected for induction as a National Academy of Inventors Fellow for 2017. Being named an NAI Fellow is one of the highest honors a researcher can receive, with the 912 NAI Fellows—including 29 Nobel laureates—accounting for more than 32,000 issued US patents and […]
Wang’s research is aimed at avoiding some of those costs by utilizing existing intelligent switches and fast communication links in smart grids, improving the economic benefits and reliability of the system, and by using open source software and general purpose hardware to reduce controller and deployment cost.
