Jinliang He

Linus Torvalds

For contributions to lightning protection
of power transmission systems, including
advancing analytic methods and innovation in line surge arresters

For his leadership of the development
and proliferation of Linux

The advanced modeling tools and innovative equipment developed
by Jinliang He are making drastic improvements in protecting highvoltage power transmission lines from the effects of lightning strikes.
Using electromagnetic field theory, He developed lightning shielding
failure analysis methods for extra- and ultra-high-voltage transmission lines that are more accurate than conventional electrogeometric analysis. Tackling the difficult subject of upward lightning leaders
originating from the transmission lines, He's models more accurately
simulate the real process of a lightning strike, enabling optimal design
of overhead power lines to reduce lightning shielding failure events.
He also pioneered polymeric surge arrestors that are smaller, lighter,
and safer to better suppress overvoltage due to lightning strikes and to
effectively reduce the cost of constructing ultra-high-voltage systems.
An IEEE Fellow, He is the Chang Jiang Scholars Distinguished
Professor of China's Ministry of Education with the Department
of Electrical Engineering at Tsinghua University, Beijing, China.

Linus Torvalds is a Finnish-American software engineer and architect of the Linux operating system. Torvalds started writing
Linux, an open UNIX-like kernel, while working on his master's degree while at the University of Helsinki. His freely shared
work ignited a technical revolution that enabled anyone to have
a web presence at very low cost and has made Linux the leading
operating system for servers, supercomputers, netbooks, Internet
networking equipment, embedded systems, and numerous personal devices. His collaborative development process in the Linux
kernel is the key success of open source software. Linux is in billions of smartphones, powers most tablets, and underlies computer-enabled eyewear, thermostats, and kitchen appliances. Torvalds
is also the original author of the "git" source control management
system. To this day, he remains the technical lead developer of the
Linux kernel project.
Torvalds is a Fellow at Linux Foundation, Portland, OR, USA.

IEEE Internet Award

IEEE Richard Harold Kaufmann Award

Sponsored by Nokia Corporation

Sponsored by the IEEE Industry Applications Society

Ramesh Govindan

Greg Stone

For sustained contributions to the dynamic analysis of the Internet (protocols,
topologies, configurations) and the
Internet of Things (sensor networks)

For advancements in rotating machine
insulation evaluation and testing

Ramesh Govindan's pioneering work on defining Internet topology, discovering how the many hosts, routers, and autonomous
systems are connected, has been integral to the continued growth
of the Internet. His Mercator mapping tool was one of the first
network mappers and provided extensive views of the Internet's
backbone. He was among the first to study the Border Gateway
Protocol, identifying oscillation issues affecting network stability. Govindan is also one of the founders of the sensornet movement, important to developing the Internet of Things in which
everyday objects are imbedded with sensors that enable constant
monitoring and interaction. Notable here is his work on directed
diffusion and development of the Tenet program for wireless sensing, which set the direction for continued research.
An IEEE Fellow, Govindan is the Northrop Grumman Chair
in Engineering and a professor at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, CA, USA.

Greg Stone's role in creating the first widely used commercial
online partial discharge (PD) instrument has benefited electric
utility companies by providing advanced diagnostics for assessing the condition and the need for maintenance of aging power
equipment. The challenge in detecting PD is being able to separate it from electrical noise prevalent in power systems. Stone's
work made it possible to separate PD signals from noise to facilitate online measurements and enable assessment of the condition
of a machine's insulation system. To achieve this, he characterized
how PD and noise pulses propagate in machine windings and
measured pulse shape characteristics. He then helped develop algorithms to enable the online monitoring. Stone's recent work
has addressed the challenges of detecting PD in variable-speed
drives to avoid premature failure.
An IEEE Fellow, Stone is a dielectrics engineer with (and cofounder of) Iris Power, L.P., Mississauga, Ontario, Canada.
