Khaligh awarded MIPS grant for wind energy power conditioning system

Khaligh awarded MIPS grant for wind energy power conditioning system

Assistant Professor Alireza Khaligh (ECE/ISR) has received a Maryland Industrial Partnerships (MIPS) award. He is teaming with Bethesda-based Altenera Technology to develop a power conditioning system for the company's mobile, lightweight wind harvester panel. This panel runs quietly, has no spinning parts and performs well under virtually any wind conditions.

The award is part of Round 52 of funding for the the MIPS program, an initiative of the Maryland Technology Enterprise Institute (Mtech). In Round 52, $3.8 million was awarded to 17 teams combining Maryland companies with university researchers to bring technology products closer to market.
