Two Prestigious Awards to JUICE Investigator
JUICE investigator Prof Tim Green, Imperial College London, has been honoured with two prestigious awards of Fellowship of the Royal Academy of Engineering (FREng) and Fellowship of the IEEE (FIEEE).
Fellowship of the Royal Academy of Engineering (FREng) UK, for his pioneering contribution in establishing the role of power electronics in future electricity transmission and distribution networks, creating additional control and optimisation functions as part of a smart grid. The Academy’s Fellowship represents the nation’s best engineering researchers, innovators, entrepreneurs, business and industry leaders. Election to the Academy is by invitation only; about 50 Fellows are elected each year by peer review from nominations made by existing Fellows.
Fellowship of the IEEE (FIEEE) for his contributions to power electronics for power systems control. As it stands today, the IEEE Grade of Fellow is conferred by the Board of Directors upon a person with an extraordinary record of accomplishments in any of the IEEE fields of interest. The total number selected in any one year does not exceed one-tenth of one percent of the total voting Institute membership. Each new Fellow receives a beautifully matted and framed certificate with the name of the Fellow and a brief citation describing the accomplishment, a congratulatory letter from the incoming IEEE president and a gold sterling silver Fellow lapel pin with antique finish.
