Dr. Nathan Weise, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering, has been awarded a $500,000 grant by the U.S. Department of Energy.

The grant is part of Advanced Research Projects Agency – Energy’s program called Building Reliable Electronics to Achieve Kilovolt Effective Ratings Safely — also known as “BREAKERS.”

BREAKERS seeks to develop new medium-voltage, DC devices to better manage power by eliminating electrical faults, improving efficiency and reaction times, and potentially enabling greater proliferation of energy storage and renewable resources.
