Alleyne honored for innovation in dynamic systems and control

10/26/2016
 
Ralph and Catherine Fisher Professor Andrew Alleyne was awarded the 2016 Charles Stark Draper Innovative Practice Award from the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. 
 
The Draper award is given biennially by the Dynamic Systems and Control Division of ASME to a DSCD member for excellent sustained contributions or for an outstanding major, singular contribution in innovative applications of dynamic systems, measurement, or control in engineering practice.
 
Alleyne has long been an international leader in the analysis, modeling, and control of thermal systems with an emphasis on dynamic thermal systems. The most recent and notable example of this was the successful funding from the National Science Foundation of the Power Optimization of Electro-Thermal Systems (POETS) Center, an $18.5 million collaborative effort which he leads.
 
He was formally honored at an ASME banquet October 13.
