IEEE PELS R. David Middlebrook Achievement Award
The IEEE PELS R. David Middlebrook Achievement Award was established in 2011 to honor an individual who is judged to have accomplished outstanding contribution in the technical field of power electronics, within one or more subfields such as modeling & control, design-oriented analysis, development, simulation and application of electronic devices, passive components, analog sensing, and power circuits for inverters, converters and motor drives in all power levels. This award is usually presented at ECCE America every year during the Awards Ceremony.
The award may recognize a single significant contribution such as a seminal paper or analysis method, or a series of accomplishments that together represent outstanding technical contributions.
The recipient of the award will receive a bronze medal, a certificate, and an honorarium of $5,000 USD. Complimentary registration for the conference to accept the award, paid for by PELS upon request.
The IEEE PELS Society Awards Application System submission site will open on 1 January 2021. If you have any questions, please send them to PELS Awards Committee via firstname.lastname@example.org.
