Best paper Award Presented to Dr. Arif Sarwat and his Students at the Journal of Modern Power Systems and Clean energy 2017
Another Best Paper award was announced for the EPS group this past July at the 2017 Advisory Board & Editorial Board Meeting of Journal of Modern Power Systems and Clean Energy (MPCE) held in Chicago, Illinois. Arif Sarwat, Mohammadhadi Amini, Alexander Domijan Jr., Aleksander Damjanovic and Faisal Kaleem were presented with the MPCE Best Paper Award for the best paper in the MPCE journal in 2016 for their work titled, Weather-based Interruption Prediction in the Smart Grid Utilizing Chronological Data.
The research presented in the paper shows the development of a tool that can predict in short and long term the number of failures and power interruptions that could happen on an electric smart grid system in a region. The Journal of Modern Power Systems and Clean Energy is committed to presenting academic achievements in the fields of modern power systems and clean energy by international engineers and researchers.
