Successful New ARC Discovery Grants and DECRA Awards

[9 Nov 2012]

Many congratulations to  David, Gregor, Branka and Wibowo, on securing  ARC Discovery grants , as well as to  Nicholas Epain on getting a DECRA award.

Below are shown the grant details.

DP130102244     Hill, Prof David J; Verbic, Dr Gregor

Project Title: Distributed control for wide-area demand response
David  Hill

Project Summary

This project underpins the paradigm shift from load following to load shaping in power system operation by unlocking 

the untapped potential of the demand side. The approach taken is to use modern ideas in distributed control. This will facilitate large-scale integration of renewable energy sources and thus render the energy supply more sustainable

Primary FoR 0906  ELECTRICAL AND ELECTRONIC ENGINEERING

Administering Organisation: The University of Sydney

DP130102479     Vucetic, Prof Branka; Hardjawana, Dr Wibowo

Project Title: Inter-cell interference modelling and control in future cellular systemsbranka vucetic

Project Summary

Small cells and frequency reuse are the key concepts in increasing the capacity of wireless cellular networks. However, the deployment of dense cells increases interference and limits the network capacity. This project will deliver novel interference control methods, capable of improving the spectral and energy efficiency in cellular networks. 

Primary FoR 1005 COMMUNICATIONS TECHNOLOGIES

Administering Organisation:  The University of Sydney

DE130101000     Epain, Dr Nicolas

Philip LeongProject Title: Next generation acoustic sensor arrays for super resolution imaging

Project Summary

This project aims to develop a new type of acoustic lens that enhances incoherent sensing. This compressive acoustic sensing approach will achieve super-resolution imaging that is robust to noise. The technology has diverse applications including medical imaging, petroleum prospecting, sonar and acoustic holography and will lead to new technology for Australia.

Primary FoR 0801 ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AND IMAGE PROCESSING
