Amirabadi Receives ONR Grant
ECE Assistant Professor Mahshid Amirabadi was awarded a $274K grant from ONR to develop "A New Class of Modular Power Converters for Next-Generation Shipboard Power Systems."
This project seeks innovative solutions for concurrent and dramatic increases in power density, lifetime, efficiency, modularity, and watts per dollar of shipboard power systems. The new class of modular AC-AC converters resulting from this project will be capable of increasing the power density by orders of magnitudes. This converter will offer not only a longer lifetime, but also lower shipping, installation, repair, and replacement costs.
