ECE / CAPS student Melanie Gonzalez from FAMU-FSU has been selected as an IEEE PES Scholarship Plus Initiative recipient for the 2016/2017 academic year.
The Home Energy Management System project consists of the design and implementation of a central energy controller in charge of automating the power consumption of a business or home client by controlling the loads according to real-time price-based information.
ECE / CAPS student Peter Cheetham won two awards at the 2016 IEEE Applied Superconductivity Conference held on September 4th - 9th in Denver, Colorado.
The Center for Advanced Power Systems (CAPS) is developing novel cryogenic dielectric materials and designs for High Temperature Superconducting (HTS) power applications. It is envisioned that HTS power cables would replace conventional cables in applications where efficiency, space, and weight are limiting design factors. Research and development efforts at CAPS and elsewhere have demonstrated the technical feasibility and benefits of gaseous helium (GHe) cooled HTS power cables for shipboard applications.
