IEEE PES Uno Lamm High Voltage Direct Current Award
Call For Nominations for the Award
Deadline: 30 November
The IEEE Power & Energy Society calls for the nomination of outstanding individuals to receive the IEEE PES Uno Lamm High-Voltage Direct-Current (HVDC) Award. This award recognizes outstanding contributions to HVDC technology. The technology has developed into an effective power system tool for long-distance energy transport, ac network interconnections, and system stability enhancement. These developments have come from the work of dedicated engineers and scientists in many countries throughout the world.
The Award: The award consists of a bronze medal, an engraved certificate, and an honorarium of $1,000. The award is named for the man most responsible for the research and development that led to the first practical application of an HVDC connection between ac systems.
Eligibility and Selection: Persons in the electric power engineering international community who have been or are heavily involved in the development and advancement of HVDC technology shall be eligible to receive this Award. Membership in the IEEE or the Power & Energy Society is not a prerequisite. Selection factors include:
Candidate’s technical accomplishments relating to HVDC
Originality or innovative nature of the contributions
Impact of the contributions on HVDC technology and on energy transport in general
Achievements in other fields
Nomination: The Nomination Form is available for download in two formats:
A nomination (2 printed copies) written in English on behalf of each candidate along with not more than five reference letters must be received as a single complete package by the IEEE PES Uno Lamm High-Voltage Direct-Current Committee chair on or before 30 November to be considered for the award (to be made during the PES Annual Meeting). The selection factors should be carefully considered during the preparation of nominations and reference letters. They must be complete and provide sufficient information to establish the candidate’s individual contributions and role in HVDC.
