A team led by Huili (Grace) Xing, professor of electrical engineering at the University of Notre Dame, has been awarded a $2,496,428 grant from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) program for projects aimed at developing next-generation power conversion devices that could dramatically transform how power is controlled and converted through the grid.

Her project was funded under ARPA-E’s “SWITCHES” program, short for “Strategies for Wide-Bandgap, Inexpensive Transistors for Controlling High-Efficiency Systems,” whose aim is to lower the cost and improve the efficiency of power electronics.
