ECE Professor wins 2022 IEEE Cyril Veinott Electromechanical Energy Conversion Award!

Dr. Juri Jatskevich, a UBC professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, has won the 2022 IEEE PES Cyril Veinott Electromechanical Energy Conversion Award! This award is given to those who have made outstanding contributions to the field of electromechanical energy conversion, and is administered by the IEEE PES Awards Committee. Dr Jatskevich is recognized for his contributions to electrical machine models for transient simulations of electromechanical energy conversion in power systems.

Dr. Jatskevich received his Bachelor’s in Electrical Engineering from Ukrainian National Agricultural University, and completed both his Master’s and Doctorate at Purdue University. He has chaired the IEEE CAS Power Systems & Power Electronic Circuits Technical Committee and is an editor of a number of IEEE publications. His research areas in the ECE department with his students include power and energy grids, power electronic systems, electrical machines and drives, and advanced modeling and simulation. He is part of the UBC Electric Power and Energy Systems group, whose work is focused on developing models and software for the analysis of electromagnetic transients in power systems and power electronic circuits.
