MATC Sustainable Facilities instructor Ted Wilinski is part of a research team that has received a $75,000 grant from the Mid-West Energy Research Consortium. Wilinski joins researchers from UW-Milwaukee and UW-Madison whose project is “Development of Next Generation Efficient Integrated Power System for Higher Power and Improved Survivability.”
The team also will work with industry partners DRS Technologies, Eaton Corporation, Rockwell Automation and S&C Company. As part of the grant, MATC students will perform testing on the power converters at UW-Milwaukee to develop a practical electrical model for the components.
“Ted has worked tirelessly to grow the college’s sustainable academic programs,” said MATC President Dr. Michael L. Burke. “He has established strong business partnerships which benefit our current and future students.”
“As the region’s premier public and private sector partnership M-WERC is excited to announce our efforts to expand on our track record of connecting corporate partners and innovators by funding research that is critical to the region’s growth in the EPC sector,” said Alan Perlstein, executive director and chief executive officer of M-WERC.
