Best Paper Award for End-user Energy Storage

ISE doctoral student Farhad Angizeh and his advisor Mohsen A. Jafari, who is a professor and chair of the department, won the Best Paper Award from the IEEE Power and Energy Society (PES) for their paper entitled "On Evaluation of Onsite Energy Storage for Various End-Use Facilities with Utility Bill Management, Arbitrage, and Frequency Regulation Opportunities," at the IEEE PES Innovative Smart Grid Technologies (ISGT) 2021 North America Conference in February.

The paper is co-authored with Qatar University professor Esmat Zaidan and postdoc fellow Ali Ghofrani. "We propose a comprehensive evaluation framework that aids facility operators to optimally size and dispatch their onsite energy storage systems while not only stacking up potential utility bill management (UBM) cost-savings and electricity market revenue streams but also fully capturing the facilities' functionality and consumption behaviors," Angizeh said.
