He is also an expertise in the electrical systems, including power electronics, electrical machines, control systems, electrical design and the construction for high building. He has published his research in high impact factor institutions, such as the IEEE transactions on industrial electronics, using a novel hybrid purturb and observe (P&O) algorithm. He has also presented his research internationally on the subjects of a small-scales (SS-CAESs) compressed air energy storage system, high efficient storage technologies such as the maximum efficiency power point tracking (MEPT), the maximum power point tracking (MPPT) and power management.
Dr Kokaew joined the staff as the lecturer at UTCC in 1996 and produced varied valuable projects before he went to pursue his PhD. One of the most famous examples is an advisor of recuse robot as uncensor disk1 and unsensor disk2 teams. Under his leader, the project was awarded 17 out of 74 teams in “Thailand Rescue Robot Championship 2007”. He was also awarded the excellent staff of the school of engineering in 2005.
