Prize Letter Award

Beginning in 2007, the Letters Editor and Associate Editors of the IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics recognize one paper deemed best among those published in the Transactions during the preceding calendar year.  The established Transactions review criteria is used as the basis for the Prize Letter selection.  Specific emphasis is placed on originality; contribution to the field; extent to which the paper is supported by analysis and experimental evidence; and the quality of presentation, including the effective use of illustrations.  A particular emphasis is placed on contributions with high value for rapid publication. In addition to a certificate presented to each author, an award of $1000 is shared equally among the paper’s authors.
