EEE Faculty garners recognition for technical publication

A paper by Prof. Michael Angelo Pedrasa, "Improved energy services provision through the intelligent control of distributed energy /resources," was recently recognized as a finalist in the Best Student Paper award and given the distinction of being a "High Quality Paper" at the recently concluded IEEE Bucharest Power Tech Conference held in Bucharest, Romania last June 2009. The conference is the flagship conference of the IEEE Power & Energy Society in Europe and is held only every two years.

The paper is co-authored by E. D. Spooner and I. F. MacGill of UNSW and was one of eight finalists (out of 151 student submissions). Prof. Pedrasa is currently an Assistant Professor at EEEI and currently on PhD study leave at the School of Electrical Engineering and Telecommunications, University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia.
