Ting Yue Receives ECOS Best Paper Award

Ting Yue, a 2017 doctoral graduate in Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mechanics, is the recipient of a Best Paper Award (Second Place) from the International Conference on Efficiency, Cost, Optimization, Simulation and Environmental Impact of Energy Systems (ECOS).

The paper, "Thermodynamic Analysis of Hybrid Power Cycles using Multiple Heat Sources of Different Temperatures," was co-authored by Yue and Noam Lior, professor in MEAM. Their work was presented at the ECOS 2017 International Conference  in San Diego and recognized at the 2018 Conference, held in Portugal.

ECOS conferences have been held since 1987, with a different country hosting each year. They are held to introduce scholars of the subject, policy makers, and interested groups to cutting-edge research that benefits society. They are also intended to initiate discussions among international scholars from multiple disciplines on the current state of energy-related research, including impact of energy use and conversion on critical resources such as water or on climate change. The conferences strive to foster new collaborative and interdisciplinary relationships among emerging and established engineers, scientists and policy makers.
