Wei-Jen Lee Professor, Ph.D., PE, Fellow IEEE Director of the Energy Systems Research Center Wei-Jen Lee (S’85-M’85-SM’97-F’07) received the B.S. and M.S. degrees from National Taiwan University, Taipei, Taiwan, R.O.C., and the Ph.D. degree from the University of Texas, Arlington, in 1978, 1980, and 1985, respectively, all in Electrical Engineering. In 1985, he joined the University of Texas at Arlington, where he is currently a professor of the Electrical Engineering Department and the director of the Energy Systems Research Center. He has been involved in the revision of IEEE Std. 141, 339, 551, 739, and dot 3000 series development. He is the Vice President of the IEEE Industry Applications Society (IEEE-IAS), a distinguished lecturer of the IEEE-IAS, a member of IEEE Fellow Committee, the associate editor of IEEE/IAS, and International Journal of Power and Energy Systems. He is the project manager of IEEE/NFPA Collaboration on Arc Flash Phenomena Research Project. Prof. Lee has been involved in research on utility deregulation, renewable energy, smart grid, microgrid, arc flash and electrical safety, load forecasting, power quality, distribution automation and demand side management, power systems analysis, online real time equipment diagnostic and prognostic system, and microcomputer based instrument for power systems monitoring, measurement, control, and protection. He has served as the primary investigator (PI) or Co-PI of over one hundred funded research projects. He has published more than three hundred and ninety journal papers and conference proceedings. He has provided on-site training courses for power engineers in Panama, China, Taiwan, Korea, Saudi Arabia, Thailand, and Singapore. He has refereed numerous technical papers for IEEE, IET, and other professional organizations. Prof. Lee is a Fellow of IEEE and registered Professional Engineer in the State of Texas.
