Three more AEP employees have received prestigious Technology Transfer Awards from the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) for their achievements in research and development (R&D).

Presented annually, EPRI’s Technology Transfer Awards recognize power system leaders and innovators who have helped their companies deliver safe, affordable, reliable, and environmentally responsible electricity via the application of R&D in the utility industry.

The following AEP employees received Technology Transfer Awards:

Jodi Cannon and Bud Clark for developing internal electrification teams, establishing electrification programs, and working with customers to advance targeted electrification technologies. These targeted technologies were identified through EPRI’s case study work for AEP under the electrification initiative.

Robert O’Keefe for applying the Load Component Export Tool (LCET) to determine reasonable, initial parameter values for the composite load model. The composite load model was applied to studies of an import-limited area of the AEP system where dynamic load behavior is a particularly critical factor in the determination of those import limits.

“The 2016 Technology Transfer Award winners have taken EPRI R&D to new levels in order to shape a sustainable energy system,” said Arshad Mansoor, senior vice president of R&D at EPRI. “Working in a collaborative environment, their advancements benefit their utility and the entire industry because we all have a stake in power system transformation.”
