Power System Relaying Committee

The PSRC met jointly with the Power Systems Dynamic Performance Committee on Monday 10th January 2011 at the Joint Technical Committee meeting in Atlanta. A representative from the Excitation Systems and Controls Subcommittee of the Energy Development and Power Generation Committee was also planning to participate, but was prevented from doing so by the weather. The presentations from that meeting are available in this file. Notes of the meeting may be found in the PSRC minutes of the January 2011 meeting under Subcommitees C and J. 

 

The PSRC congratulates the following members for recognition in the form of distinguished awards. Although these members have been long recognized within the IEEE for their significant contributions to technology, we are pleased to see other organizations also recognizing their work.

  • Congratulations to Dr. Mohindar Sachdev on being named the recipient of the 2013 IEEE Charles Proteus Steinmetz Award for exceptional contributions to the developement and/or advancement of standards in electrical and electronics engineering with the following citation: "For contributions to and leadership in the development of guides, recommended practices, and standards for power system protection."
  • Congratulations to Chuck Mozina and Rick Taylor on their elevation to the level of IEEE Fellow in the class of 2010. Both of their citations are, ďFor contributions to protection of electric power systems".   The rank of IEEE Fellow is the institute's highest member grade, bestowed on IEEE senior members who have contributed "to the advancement or application of engineering, science and technology." Each January, the IEEE Board of Directors awards the designation of Fellow to no more than 0.1 percent of the voting membership as of 31 December of the preceding year.  After the addition of the class of 2008 the total number of IEEE Fellows was 6,600.  For a full list of PSRC fellow members see LIST OF PSRC FELLOWS.For more general information on fellow membership visit http://www.ieee.org/fellows.
  • Senior Membership has been granted to Meyer Kao and Patrick Carroll.  Senior Member is the highest professional grade of the IEEE for which application may be made.  Approximately 8.1% of our 382,000 members have achieved this grade.  Congratulations to Meyer and Pat!
  • Congratulations to Mladen Kezunovic on being presented the 2008 Atwood Associate Award (http://www.cigre-usnc.org/attwood.htm). The Attwood Associate Award is given to an individual who has made notable contributions to CIGR… over an extended period of time. Mladen joins a group of distinguished PSRC members who have previously received this award, including William Z. Brownlee, J. Lewis Blackburn, Charles L. Wagner, John W. Chadwick, Jr., Stanley H. Horowitz, Arun G. Phadke, Stig L. Nilsson, and Thomas W. Cease.
  • In a separate recognition, Mark Adamiak has been selected as a 2008 Edison Award winner. Named after one of GE's founders and one of history's most prolific innovators, the Edison Awards are presented to individuals from across GE for recent technical achievements that have made a significant impact on the current and future vitality of their businesses. As part of this prestigious recognition, Mark will be awarded a $25,000 grant to fund research at a university of his choice. He will also be recognized at a reception with Jeff Immelt and GE's Engineering Leaders Council this (2008) spring.
  • In a third recognition, the Vladimir Karapetoff Award will given to Stanley H. Horowitz, and Arun G. Phadke on March 19, 2008 at Hyatt Regency at Pennís Landing, Philadelphia, PA. The award is given for their technical contributions to the field of power system protection and control. This major Eta Kappa Nu (HKN) recognition for career accomplishment in the field of electrical and computer engineering dates from 1922, when the Board of Governors established the award in honor of Vladimir Karapetoff, an IEEE Fellow and a prominent member of HKN. The award is given annually to an electrical practitioner who is distinguished himself/herself through an invention, a development, or a discovery in the field of electrotechnology.
  • Congratulations to Bogdan Kasztenny, Vahid Madani and Ken Martin as they have been elevated to the level of IEEE Fellow.  The IEEE Fellow class of 2008 has 295 members bringing the total number of Fellows to 6,600.  The rank of IEEE Fellow is the institute's highest member grade, bestowed on IEEE senior members who have contributed "to the advancement or application of engineering, science and technology."  Each January, the IEEE Board of Directors awards the designation of Fellow to no more than 0.1 percent of the voting membership as of 31 December of the preceding year.  For more information visit http://www.ieee.org/fellows.
