IEEE R8 News: Winner of IEEE-Student Video Competition

From October 21st till 24th 2013 the IEEE SmartGridComm Conference took place in Vancouver, Canada. In the course of this conference the IEEE Student Video Competition took place as well, where the award for the best Smart Grid application video was granted to Mr. Mario Faschang for his video “Electric Vehicle in Smart Grid Showcase”.

Mario Faschang is an active IEEE R8 member (Austria Section) and a member of the Energy&IT research group, which is part of the Institute of Computer Technology of Vienna University of Technology. Mario’s research topics are in the field of Energy&IT and focus on voltage control in low voltage distribution grids with high density of distributed, alternative power generation and electromobility.

Congratulations to the winner!

About Mario Faschang

Mario Faschang was born in Upper Austria where he also visited primary and secondary technical school. From 2005 on, he studied the bachelor’s program in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at Vienna University of Technology. After attending the exchange program "Erasmus", where he studied at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya in Spain, he finished the bachelor’s program in 2009. Subsequently he continued his studies with the master’s program Computer Technology at the Technical University of Vienna. As part of this program he wrote his thesis about coordinated charging of battery-electric vehicles, for which he was awarded the INiTS award and the GreenTech award. Faschang achieved his master degree with honors in 2011. Since then he has been working at Institute of Computer Technology at Vienna University of Technology as PhD student and research assistant. His research topics lie in the field of Energy&IT and focus on voltage control in low voltage distribution grids with high share of distributed, alternative power generation and electromobility. In addition to his research activities he is supervising bachelor and master students and is involved in teaching (digital systems, smart grids).
