Kiruba Haran and Nils Nilsson congratulate the 2016 first place prize paper winners. This paper was also recognized as one of the two best papers in the entire PES at the PES Awards Banquet two days earlier. The paper is entitled "Distributed Adaptive Droop Control for DC Distribution Systems." The authors are V. Nasirian, A. Davoudi, F. Lewis and J. Guerrero.
The EMC 2016 second place prize paper award was presented to the authors by Nils Nilsson and Kiruba Haran at the EMC Annual Meeting. It should be noted that all three prize paper winners made a five minute summary presentation of their paper at the EMC Annual Meeting. This paper was entitled "Decentralized Control of a Nine-Phase Permanent Magnet Generator for Offshore Wind Turbines," and it was authored by E. Prieto-Araujo, A. Junyent-Ferré, D. Lavèrnia-Ferrer and O. Gomis-Bellmunt.
Kiruba Haran and Nils Nilsson congratulate Dr. Chiba on his third place 2016 EMC prize paper at the EMC Annual Meeting. Dr. Chiba has also been instrumental in the ongoing success of the EMC Motors Subcommittee. The paper was entitled "Development of a Rare-Earth-Free SR Motor with High Torque Density for Hybrid Vehicles." The complete list of authors is A. Chiba, K. Kiyota, N. Hoshi, M. Takemoto and S. Ogasawara.
One of the sidebar activities at the PES Annual Meeting was the hiding of several "Zappy" the squirrels who get into electrical equipment and causes mayhem, at various places at the convention. The IEEE Standards Board hosted this activity. Anyone who found a Zappy stuffed animal could redeem it for a prize. The Zappy in this picture was found by a member of the EMC.
