Jin Dong Awarded Best Paper by IEEE
The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) awarded Building Equipment & Urban Systems Research Group’s Jin Dong with the Best Paper Award for “Model Predictive Control of Building On/Off HVAC Systems to Compensate Fluctuations in Solar Power Generation”, in Proc. Of IEEE 9thInternational Symposium on Power Electronics for Distributed Generation Systems (PEDG). Dong’s work has focused mainly on control-oriented building energy modelling and new optimal control algorithms for improving the energy efficiency of buildings as well as actively engaging them in response to grid needs. He has been involved in the development of transactive building load control, adaptive building modelling and virtual storage devices projects sponsored by the DOE Solar Office and Building Technology Office (BTO).
