PRIME 2006, June 11-16

Fabian Uriarte (right) with “future faculty colleagues” received the first University Partnership Program Travel Grant. His paper, "Continuous vs. Piecewise Hysterisis Model of a Current Transformer" was accepted for presentation at the 2006 IEEE PhD Research in Microelectronics Conference, held in Otranto, Italy.

Fabian expects to complete his PhD in Electrical Egineering at Texas A&M next year. He holds BS and MS degrees in EE from another UPP school, Virginia Tech.

About the trip, Fabian says “the best part was becoming comfortable and starting a group of professional friends abroad,” whom he hopes to

encounter again as a university professor .

In May, Fabian placed second in the 2005/6 Transmission and Distribution Conference and Exposition Paper Contest sponsored by the IEEE Power Engineering Society
