The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering recently announced the winner of its 2023-24 ECE Research Symposium.
ECE graduate student Yehong Peng won for her presentation “Efficient Reserve Constrained AC Optimal Power Flow.”
Peng said the event supported her long-term goals, providing an opportunity to present her research and obtain constructive feedback from other researchers and experts, as well as broadening her academic perspectives.
She said, “My intent was not just to share the results of my research, but also to provide insight into the entire research journey. It includes the challenges we faced, the process we underwent, and the solutions we derived. I hoped that my findings could initiate further discussions and possibly inspire other researchers, especially considering the widespread relevance of optimization problems across diverse fields.”
Peng’s major professor is Dr. Yong Fu, and Peng recognized the importance of her advisor through the process.
“My advisor has been a cornerstone in my research journey, offering invaluable guidance, assisting in refining my hypotheses, and extending essential resources for deeper exploration. His feedback and professional experience have been a guiding light,” Peng noted.
Peng was one of thirteen participants in the ECE Research Symposium. The event was judged by ECE faculty members Drs. Jenny Du, Ali Gurbuz, Chun-Hung Liu and Masoud Karimi.
