Amar G. Bose

Prabha S. Kundur

For outstanding contributions to consumer electronics in
sound reproduction, industrial leadership and engineering
education

For leadership in the development and application of analytical
methods, tools and techniques for modeling, simulation and
control of large-scale interconnected power systems

Amar G. Bose is an engineer, educator and entrepreneur whose
name is synonymous with high-end sound systems that produce
lifelike audio. Although primarily known for his acoustics patents,
there is more to Dr. Bose than meets the ear. As a professor, he
is considered a legend at MIT, having influenced thousands of
electrical engineering students and even attracting to his classes
students pursuing other fields. The teaching award named in his
honor is one of the most coveted in MIT's Electrical Engineering
Department. His research on nonlinear control theory led to an
electromagnetic active control suspension for automobiles. The
Bose suspension system uses motors, power amplifiers and
control algorithms to provide superior comfort by gliding
smoothly over bumpy roads and superior control by keeping the
car body level during aggressive maneuvers.

For over 40 years, Prabha Kundur has been at the leading edge of
development and application of technology that has made the
operation of large-scale interconnected power systems more
safe, secure and reliable. He has impacted many areas including
modeling and measurement tools, analysis methods and control
techniques that enhance power system stability. Dr. Kundur's development and validation of comprehensive power plant models
for dynamic analysis and control design have been incorporated
in software packages that address transient stability, small signal
stability, voltage stability and dynamic reduction for large-scale
power systems. Widely recognized and applied by the power
industry, these models are important tools in testing whether the
power system can handle and recover from disturbances without
taking down a large portion of the grid.

Dr. Bose is an IEEE Life Fellow. He was a professor at MIT from
1956 to 2001, and is currently the Chairman and Technical
Director of Bose Corporation.

Dr. Kundur's contributions to advanced excitation control
designs have enhanced overall system dynamic performance. In
addition to improving system security, the designs also improve
efficiency since the system is able to operate at higher limits.
Under Dr. Kundur's leadership, Ontario Hydro, Canada, was one
of the first utilities to develop instrumentation technologies and
conduct fault tests to identify and verify models and analytical
tools being used for power system simulation. Dr. Kundur is the
author of the book Power System Stability and Control, which
has been used by academics and practicing engineers worldwide
and is considered an industry classic. An IEEE Life Fellow, Dr.
Kundur is currently president of Kundur Power Systems Solutions,
Inc., Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
