WABI Covers Emera Maine Lab Dedication

WABI (Channel 5) reported on the dedication of the University of Maine Emera Maine Power Systems Laboratory to benefit undergraduate electrical engineering and electrical engineering technology education. The lab, made possible by a $100,000 donation to the University of Maine Foundation from Emera Maine, is equipped to demonstrate concepts in electromechanical energy conversion and power systems, including smart-grid technology. Dana Humphrey, dean of the College of Engineering, said understanding how to manage power systems is what students will learn in the new lab. After the dedication ceremony, a demonstration was held to show how the lab can tap into the power grid system.
