IEEE William E. Newell Power Electronics Award
The IEEE William E. Newell Power Electronics Award has been presented annually since 1977 for outstanding achievement in power electronics. Beginning in 2005, the Award was elevated to an IEEE Technical Field Award, sponsored by the Power Electronics Society. It is dedicated to the memory of Dr. William E. Newell of the Westinghouse Research and Development Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
The awardee has been judged to be outstanding in the multidisciplinary field of power electronics, which crosses the technical boundaries of a number of Societies of the IEEE. The recipient receives a bronze medal, certificate and honorarium.
Achievements by which an individual is judged to have made outstanding contributions encompass a broad range of activities and include teaching, innovative research, consulting endeavors, professional seminars, major project or program management, and the general communication and advocacy of power electronics technology to the technical community as a whole. The technical disciplines that encompass the field of power electronics include the analysis, design, development, simulation and application of electronic devices, magnetics, controls and power circuits for inverters, converters and motor drives ranging in power level from fractions of a watt to megawatts.
