Graduate student wins IEEE power electronics fellowship
ECE ILLINOIS graduate student Enver Candan was named as the winner of the IEEE 2017 Joseph J. Suozzie INTELEC® Fellowship in Power Electronics for his project "A Series-Stacked Power Delivery for 48V Data Center Power Architecture." The fellowship is named in honor of the late Dr Joseph Suozzi, a founder and long-time leader of INTELEC technical community, and is considered to be one of the most prestigious awards that the organization presents to graduate students.
Each year, a committee selects one electrical engineering graduate student "studying in an area of power electronics that powers information and communication technology systems" to receive a $15,000 grant, according to the IEEE Power Electronics Society. The award is based on the merit of a proposed project or study that is deemed progressive and directly relevant to communications energy systems. IEEE Power Electronics Society (PELS) flew Candan to Australia for the awards ceremony to receive his honor in person.
