Prof. Junbo Zhao chairs a working group to win prestigious IEEE PES Working Group Recognition Award


Prof. Junbo Zhao, who served as the chair of IEEE Task Force on Power System Dynamic State and Parameter Estimation, along with his fellow working group members earned the prestigious IEEE PES Outstanding Working Group for Outstanding Technical Report Award (, one of the highest awards from IEEE Power and Energy Society (PES).

This award recognizes the most outstanding working groups from among those nominated by each Technical Committee. Only two working groups are chosen each year to win this award, one for Technical Report and one for Standard or Guide. The committee’s report is titled “Power System Dynamic State and Parameter Estimation-Transition to Power Electronics-Dominated Clean Energy Systems.” This report aims to 1) clearly review its motivations and definitions, demonstrate its values for enhanced power system modeling, monitoring, operation, control, and protection as well as power engineering education; 2) provide recommendations to vendors, national labs, utilities, and ISOs on the use of dynamic state estimator for enhancement of the reliability, security, and resiliency of electric power systems. More information on the report and authors can be found here.

The IEEE PES provides the world’s largest forum for sharing the latest in technological developments in the electric power industry, for developing standards that guide the development and construction of equipment and systems, and for educating members of the industry and the general public. IEEE PES is the second-largest society under IEEE and has nearly 43,000 members across the world.
