Power Research Program

The Power Research Program expired in March 2020.

A new externally funded research center was initiated in May 2014 at the ECE Department.  It is entitled the "Power Research Program".  It is funded by AMEREN  for the next three years.

Research and development projects in the area of power systems, power electronics, the smart grid, and the internet of things will be initiated at this center for the next five years. Dr. Constantine Hatziadoniu, Professor at the ECE Dept., will be the director of this research center.

This is an exciting development that will likely help us attract more industries to fund research efforts at SIUC in this rapidly evolving area.
