A paper co-authored by Dr. Prasad Enjeti, professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Texas A&M University, was named the most highly cited research publication in Qatar over the last decade.
Clarivate Analytics, formerly the Intellectual Property & Science business of Thomson Reuters, released its decennial list of leading researchers in the Middle East and North Africa. Research conducted by Enjeti and faculty members at Texas A&M University Qatar was noted as the most highly cited research publication in Qatar.
The paper, “High-Performance Adaptive Perturb and Observe MPPT Technique for Photovoltaic-Based Microgrids,” was published in IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics in 2011. It was co-authored by Enjeti, TI Professor III in Analog Engineering and associate dean for academic affairs in the college of engineering, along with Texas A&M Qatar researchers Dr. Shehab Ahmed, associate professor, Dr. Ahmed M. Massoud, associate professor and Dr. Ahmed Abselsalam, former postdoctoral research associate. Enjeti worked at the Qatar campus from 2008 to 2010 when the research was conducted. The paper has been cited more than 266 times to date.
In its report, “Middle East Snapshot: Prolific Institutions, Active Fields,” Clarivate Analytics described how the list was determined based on a search of the Web of Science Core Collection, covering January 2006 to September 2016 indexing more than 12,000 scientific and scholarly journals along with proceeding papers, book chapters and other materials.
