Awards

  • IEEE Charles Proteus Steinmetz Award nomination

    Dr. Leszek S. Czarnecki, Alfredo M. Lopez Distinguished Professor in ECE Dept., LSU, IEEE Life Fellow and a Foreign Member of the Polish Society of Theoretical and Applied Electrical Engineering, Titled Professor of Technological Sciences of Poland, has recently been nominated for the IEEE Charles Proteus Steinmetz Award, which is one of the most prestigious honors in electrical engineering.

    Dr. Czarnecki solved one of the most difficult and controversial problems of electrical engineering in XX century, formulated by Steinmetz at the end of XIX century, namely, how to explain and describe the energy flow in electrical systems? Hundreds scientists attempted to solve it and failed and hundreds papers on it were published. Dr. Czarnecki developed the Currents’ Physical Components (CPC) – based Power Theory which explains and describes all power phenomena in electrical systems and provides solid, physical fundamentals for understanding energy flow in electrical systems of any complexity. The CPC creates also fundamentals for improving power properties of electrical systems. The CPC Power Theory is now the most advanced, not challenged concept, which starts to be taught at universities in various countries.

    Dr. Czarnecki has been highly recognized for his exceptional contributions to electrical and electronics engineering. He published 138 journal papers and obtained 29 patents. More details can be found in the attached attached nomination of Dr. Czarnecki to Steinmetz Award., 2015
