Maria Bruck wins student paper award at ASME Power & Energy Conference
Maira Bruck, an undergraduate Economics major at the University of Maryland, won the student paper competition at the 2016 ASME Power & Energy Conference in Charlotte, NC last week. The paper entitled: “A Levelized Cost of Energy (LCOE) Model for Wind Farms that Includes Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) Energy Delivery Limits” develops a new cost model to evaluate the price of electricity from wind energy under a PPA contract. The coauthors on the paper are Navid Goudarzi (ME post-doctoral researcher) and ISR-affiliated Professor Peter Sandborn (ME).
The competition encourages the active participation of students in the ASME Power Conference by submitting high quality technical papers on various aspects of the Electric Power Generation Industry. The competition includes a paper submission and presentation of the research to evaluate the student’s ability to verbally explain the solution and the problem presented in the paper. This competition seeks to promote the interaction of future engineers with practicing and experienced engineers. It also serves to help them establish mentoring and networking links with experts in their areas of interest.
