simon r. Cherry

william H. sanders

For contributions to the development and
application of in vivo molecular imaging
systems

For the assessment-driven design of
trustworthy cyber infrastructures for
electric grid systems

Simon R. Cherry's expertise in developing molecular imaging systems incorporating positron emission tomography (PET) is driving advances in biomedicine and healthcare. Cherry created the
first microPET scanner to evaluate radiopharmaceuticals and drugs
in small animals. Overcoming the challenges of imaging small animals has been instrumental in allowing researchers and clinicians
to gain a better understanding of diseases and potential human
therapies. He also developed the first hybrid PET/magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanners for even more powerful preclinical
imaging applications. His discovery that many radionuclides used
in biomedical research produce Cerenkov luminescence and can
be imaged using optical cameras has created one of the fastestgrowing areas in molecular imaging. Cherry is currently working
on developing the first total-body human PET scanner.
An IEEE Fellow, Cherry is a professor with the Departments
of Biomedical Engineering and Radiology at the University of
California, Davis, CA, USA.

A leading cybersecurity expert, the groundbreaking contributions
of William H. Sanders have made the electric power grid more
safe, secure, reliable, and available. He did so by developing tools
and techniques to make the grid more resilient to attacks that
may occur as well as methods for quantitatively assessing its cyber
security and resiliency. He has worked in every part of the field,
from the distribution-side, including smart meters, to long-haul
transmission networks. Among other contributions, he is the codeveloper of the NP-View software to test NERC-CIP compliance of process control networks, which has changed the way
utilities audit their networks.
An IEEE Fellow, Dr. Sanders is a Donald Biggar Willett Professor of Engineering and Head of the Department of Electrical and
Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois at UrbanaChampaign, Urbana, IL, USA.

IEEE Charles Proteus Steinmetz Award

IEEE Nikola Tesla Award

Sponsored by the IEEE Standards Association

Sponsored by Wolong Electric Group Co., Ltd., the IEEE Industry
Applications Society, and the IEEE Power & Energy Society

Hermann Koch

Bruno lequesne

For leadership in and contributions to
the development, standardization, and
global impact of gas-insulating technology for substations (GIS) and high-voltage lines (GIL)

For contributions to the design and
analysis of actuators, sensors, and motors for automotive applications

Hermann Koch's dedication to advancing gas-insulating switchgear (GIS) and line (GIL) technology for the power industry is
enabling the safe transmission of high electric power over greater
distances and into space-constrained environments where overhead power lines are not viable. Working with Siemens AG, Koch
developed new insulating gas mixtures for high-voltage systems,
adopted pipeline laying technology to electrical systems, and was
responsible for the installation of the first GIL system using these
new techniques in 2001. Koch has helped increase global access
to GIS and GIL technology by promoting improved standardization efforts between the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and IEEE. He influenced IEEE to develop standards
for high- and medium-voltage GIS and GIL and promoted IEC
positions while a member of the IEEE Standards Activities Board.
An IEEE Fellow, Koch is a principle expert with the Energy
Management Division at Siemens AG, Erlangen, Germany.

The patented work of Bruno Lequesne has driven advances leading to the realization of "more electric automobiles" that use electrical and electromechanical systems for improved fuel economy,
reduced greenhouse emissions, and better safety. With innovations
recognized by multiple awards from industry leaders such as Delphi
and General Motors, Lequesne's work on linear actuators provided
closed form solutions to identify the best configurations for enginevalve motion or suspension. His work on encoders for brushless
motors helped overcome torque ripple in electric power steering
systems, contributing to a fuel-saving feature now standard in most
vehicles. His camshaft and crankshaft position sensors for engine
control help to reduce emissions, and his wheel speed sensors for
anti-skid braking have made vehicles safer. He also developed one of
the first induction belt-driven starter generators, which has enabled
start-stop functionality to help eliminate idling losses in engines.
An IEEE Fellow, Lequesne is president of E-Motors Consulting, LLC, Menomonee Falls, WI, USA.
