for the IEEE Power & Energy Society, Electric Machinery
Scope: The Electric Machinery Committee is concerned with all matters
related to the requirements, research, development, application,
design, construction, operation, or supervision of electrical machinery
associated with generation of electric energy; its conversion into
other forms of electric energy or mechanical energy. The scope includes
treatment of the following:
DC and Permanent Magnet machines
Motor generator sets
Rotating frequency changers
Electric couplings, brakes and dynamometers
Magneto-hydrodynamic energy conversion ducts
Insulation, magnetic, conductor, and super conductor materials as used
in electrical machinery
Linear Electric Machinery
Power Electronic controls for electric machinery
Effects of power electronic controls on electric machine components.

PES AWARDS and IEEE TECHNICAL FIELD
of the Electric Machines
Committee (EMC) and its subcommittees and working groups are candidates
for EMC Awards, Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE)
Power and Energy Society (PES) Awards and IEEE Technical Field
Awards. The EMC Awards include the EMC Service Award, EMC
Paper and EMC Prize Working Group (Standard or Committee Report) which
are awarded annually at the IEEE PES Annual Meeting; usually convened
in July. The EMC is especially interested in nominations for
prize paper consideration. The nomination should include the
citation in the Transactions and a description of what sets this paper
apart from all others receiving Transactions status. Contact
firstname.lastname@example.org with nominations.
IEEE PES Awards and IEEE Technical Field Awards are
not nominated by the EMC but rather by IEEE members. EMC
make good candidates for these awards and as can be seen below have
been the honorees on many occasions. For nomination forms,
contact email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. A brief
of these awards is summarized below in order of applicability to the
Nikola Tesla Award: Major
EMC participants who have received it include Tom Nehl, Shep Salon, Jim
Kirtley, Nabeel Demerdash, Paul Dandeno, Tom Lipo, Carl Flick and Jay
White. The award was established in 1975 by the IEEE Board of
Directors and it is presented for outstanding contributions to the
generation and utilization of electric power. Nikola Telsa,
this awards honors, was a pioneer in many electrical areas but is
probably best known as the inventor of the AC induction motor.
IEEE PES Cyril Veinott Award: Major EMC participants who have
received it include Osama Mohammed, Oleg Wasynczuk, Aziz Rahman and
Paul Nippes. This award recognizes outstanding contributions
the field of electromechanical energy conversion. Cyril
whom this award honors, was responsible for numerous practical
improvements in the design and application of electric motors over a
fifty year time span.
IEEE Charles Proteus Steinmetz Award: This award recognizes
exceptional contributions to the development and advancement of
standards in electrical and electronics engineering. While no
member has been an honoree, other standards recognition has been given
to EMC members such as Jim Michalec.
IEEE Richard Harold Kaufmann Award: The major EMC participant
has received this award is Jim Oliver. The award was
in 1986 by the IEEE Board of Directors and it is presented for
outstanding contributions in industrial systems engineering.
Richard Kaufmann, whom this award honors, made many contributions to
industrial systems engineering. Rotating machines are a major
part of industrial systems.
Nominators should also contact IEEE about the PES
Meritorious Service Award, PES Power Engineering Educator Award and PES
Young Engineer Award among others. Also, don’t
nominate an EMC colleague for Fellow status.
PES EMC NOMINATED AWARD WINNERS
This posting lists
Institute of Electrical and
Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Power and Energy Society (PES) Electric
Machinery Committee (EMC) winners of the EMC Distinguished Service
Award, EMC Prize Paper Award and EMC Working Group Recognition Award by
year for the last several years. These data were previously
tracked by the IEEE Power Engineering Society Organization and
Committee Directory in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s and can be located in
library copies of these directories.
