To pay tribute to the late Professor Krishna M. Pasala, the IEEE Krishna M. Pasala, Ph.D. Memorial Scholarship was established by the IEEE Dayton Section in 2012. This annual Scholarship recognizes the academic excellence of one graduate student within the Electrical and Computer Engineering department of the University of Dayton. The student must be an active IEEE member. The scholarship award (up to $1000) may be used toward the purchase of books or other educational materials associated with education innovation.

Subject Intergrid: A Future Electronic Energy Network?
Abstract: Anticipated widespread usage of new power electronics technologies in electrical energy generation and consumption is expected to provide major efficiency improvements, while the deployment of smart grid technologies should improve the utilization and availability of electricity. This paper explores possible relationships between these two trends. Starting from an analysis of current and expected developments in the generation, transport, and consumption of electrical energy, this presentation contemplates possible future ac and dc electronic power distribution system architectures, especially in the presence of renewable energy sources. The proposed nanogrid-microgrid–…–grid structure achieves hierarchical dynamic decoupling of generation, distribution, and consumption by using bidirectional electronic power converters as energy control centers. Several possible directions for modeling, analysis, and system-level design of such systems, including power flow control, protection, stability, and subsystem interactions, are briefly discussed.
Speaker’s Bio: Dushan Boroyevich received his Dipl. Ing. degree from the University of Belgrade in 1976 and his M.S. degree from the University of Novi Sad in 1982, in what then used to be Yugoslavia. He received his Ph.D. degree in 1986 from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech), Blacksburg, USA. From 1986 to 1990, he was an assistant professor and director of the Power and Industrial Electronics Research Program in the Institute for Power and Electronic Engineering at the University of Novi Sad. He then joined the Bradley Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Virginia Tech as associate professor. He is now American Electric Power Professor at the department and co-director of the Center for Power Electronics Systems (CPES). Prof. Boroyevich is Fellow of IEEE and recipient of the IEEE William E. Newell Power Electronics Technical Field Award. He was the president of the IEEE Power Electronics Society for 2011-12. Dushan’s research interests include multi-phase power conversion, electronic power distribution systems, power electronics systems modeling and control, and multi-disciplinary design optimization.
A local legend is featured in this a recent issue of
“Today’s Engineer” magazine.
Charles Kettering was one of the most distinguished (and wealthiest) engineers of the twentieth century, serving for decades as the director of General Motors' research division. It was as an EE that he first earned his reputation and his fortune, before moving on to a distinguished career in research management and a broader interest in automotive engineering as a whole.
