Energy Society

Sponsored by Dr. Kiyo Tomiyasu, the IEEE Geoscience and Remote
Sensing Society, and the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques
Society

Kaustav Banerjee
and vivek
subramanian

ion gheorghe Boldea

For contributions to nano-materials, devices, circuits, and
CAD, enabling low-power
and low-cost electronics

For contributions to the design and
control of rotating and linear electric
machines for industry applications

With research ahead of its time and many books that are considered the best resources in the field, Ion Gheorghe Boldea has
introduced many firsts in electric machine technology for better
industrial productivity, energy savings, and air pollution reduction.
He developed an optimum goodness factor for designing highspeed linear induction motors to address factors such as mechanical vibrations and bending. He introduced the Magnibus-01, a
4-ton magnetic levitation test vehicle featuring linear homopolar
synchronous motors for passive guide-way integrated magnetic
propulsion and levitation. Dr. Boldea's active flux concept is a
unifying force for simplifying sensorless control of ac motor drives
that has been implemented in many industrial applications. His
work on torque vector control has become an industrial standard
for electric motor drives.
An IEEE Life Fellow, Dr. Boldea is a Professor Emeritus with
the University Politehnica Timisoara, Romania.

Kaustav Banerjee's and Vivek Subramanian's pioneering use of nanomaterials and radical innovations in devices, interconnects, circuits, and
design methods for overcoming power, thermal, and other fundamental
challenges in both nanoscale integrated circuits (ICs) and printed electronics have been crucial to the continued scaling of electronic devices.
Prof. Banerjee is considered one of the key visionaries behind threedimensional (3D) IC technology for continued scaling and integration
beyond Moore's law, and the pioneer behind thermal-aware design
methods and tools. Prof. Subramanian's innovations have provided pathways for 3D IC fabrication via 3D nonvolatile memory and have driven
advances in fabrication techniques for displays and RFID tags.
An IEEE Fellow, Dr. Banerjee is currently a professor with
the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at
the University of California, Santa Barbara, CA, USA. An IEEE
Member, Dr. Subramanian is currently a professor with the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at
the University of California, Berkeley, CA, USA.

IEEE Transportation Technologies Award

IEEE Undergraduate Teaching Award

Sponsored by the IEEE Industry Applications, Industrial Electronics,
Intelligent Transportation Systems, Microwave Theory and Techniques,
Power Electronics, Power & Energy, and Vehicular Technology Societies

Sponsored by the IEEE Education Society

robert d. King

Branislav m. notaros

For contributions to the design, optimization, and implementation of propulsion and energy management systems
for hybrid-electric vehicles

For contributions to undergraduate
electromagnetics education through
inspiring teaching and innovative course
materials

Robert D. King has devoted his 35-year career to changing the
world's dependence on fossil-fuel-driven vehicles. Known as GE's
"father of electric vehicle research and development," over 50%
of today's hybrid-electric vehicles incorporate patents developed
by Mr. King and his research team. He has been responsible for
the design, development, and testing of electric and hybrid vehicle
propulsion systems for the GE Hybrid Locomotive program, GE
Hybrid Package Delivery Truck, GE/FTA Low Emissions Hybrid
Bus Program, Modular Electric Vehicle Program, and the GE/
DOE Hybrid Test Vehicle. Using compact ac traction drives and
novel energy management system controls, Mr. King has demonstrated substantially reduced petroleum consumption for onroad hybrid passenger cars and reduced transit bus emissions via
hybridization.
An IEEE Life Fellow, Mr. King, a senior electrical engineer
with GE Global Research, Schenectady, NY, USA, retired in 2014.

Teaching what are traditionally considered some of the most difficult courses in the electrical engineering curriculum, Branislav
M. Notaros has made dramatic improvements to student learning,
mastery, success, and satisfaction in his electromagnetics classes.
Prof. Notaros' students appreciate his enthusiasm for the subject
matter, his effectiveness in explaining complex material, and his
genuine concern for their success. His teaching is based on active
and problem-based learning, using his examples, problems, and
conceptual questions. At the global level, he implemented this approach and material in his electromagnetics textbook, his greatest
endeavor of many years. His hands-on MATLAB exercises, tutorials, and projects constitute one of the most complete and ambitious uses of MATLAB in electromagnetics education.
An IEEE Senior Member, Dr. Notaros is currently a professor
at Colorado State University, Fort Collins, CO, USA.
