Engineering student places second in science and technology poster contest


MONTGOMERY, Ala. (May 16, 2013) — During April’s Science and Technology Open House Poster Competition, a Tuskegee engineering graduate student took second place in the Masters Division. During the open house held at the Renaissance Montgomery Hotel and Spa Convention Center in Montgomery, Ala. Shatori Meadows, a native of Freeport, Bahamas, competed against students from several other Alabama institutions.

Her project was entitled: “Speed and Torque Control of a Mechanically Coupled Permanent Magnet Direct Current Motor.” According to her adviser, Arbin Ebrahim, the “project is based on designing a speed controller for a motor that is mechanically coupled to another motor which generates a desired torque based on a torque controller that acts as a disturbance on the first motor. The two controllers are designed so that a reference speed is tracked even in the case of torque disturbance.”

Meadows earned her master’s degree in electrical engineering May 11 at Tuskegee’s 128th Spring Commencement Exercises. She is currently a research associate and working with Ebrahim to submit their work for publication in a research journal.
