Ye Cheng accepts best paper award

Recent graduate Ye Cheng along with CAR Research Scientist Matilde D’Arpino and CAR Director Giorgio Rizzoni received the Best Paper Award at the 2022 IEEE/AIAA Transportation Electrification Conference and Electric Aircraft Technologies Symposium.

The paper, titled “Fault Diagnosis in Lithium-ion Battery of Hybrid Electric Aircraft based on Structural Analysis” presents a diagnostic scheme for Lithium-ion battery systems of hybrid electric aircraft with specific focus on diagnosing short circuit faults and sensor faults to ensure system availability and functionality. 

“I’m very thrilled and honored to receive the Electrified Aircraft Technologies Symposium Best Paper Awards at ITEC+EATS 2022,” said Cheng. “It is a good indication that our team did a great job, it is recognized and will inspire future work. Many thanks to my co-authors, Dr. Rizzoni and Dr. D'Arpino, for their contribution to this paper! I'd also like to thank the NASA ULI project for funding this research and thank my co-workers in this project for their support.”
