Professor Josep M. Guerrero receives the 2022 IEEE Power & Energy Society Douglas M. Staszesky Distribution Automation Award

The 2022 IEEE Power & Energy Society Douglas M. Staszesky Distribution Automation Award is given to Professor Josep M. Guerrero for his contributions to making the hierarchical control of microgrid systems a practical reality.

The purpose of the award is to recognize those in the industry who have made a significant contribution to making the automation of electric utility distribution systems a practical reality. Doug Staszesky worked with a great deal of energy and passion to bring new technologies and new concepts to the field of distribution automation and to promote the value of investments in such systems to electric utility decision makers. This award is established to recognize people in the industry that have displayed that same energy and passion to the field of distribution automation and who have demonstrated success in the implementation of systems that provide real benefits for electric utilities and their customers.

Josep thanks IEEE, AAU Energy at Aalborg University, the Velux Foundations, international collaborators and all the researchers in the world working in the microgrid field.
