Milan M. Jovanovic Inducted into the National Academy of Engineering

.....On October 4, 2015, Milan M. Jovanovic was inducted into the National Academy of Engineering (NAE). The Academy cited Jovanovic's work on efficiency improvements of AC-DC power supplies in information technology systems for his election.
..... Election to the National Academy of Engineering is among the highest professional distinctions accorded to an engineer. Academy membership honors those who have made outstanding contributions to "engineering research, practice, or education, including, where appropriate, significant contributions to the engineering literature," and to the "pioneering of new and developing fields of technology, making major advancements in traditional fields of engineering, or developing/implementing innovative approaches to engineering education."
..... Along with Dr. Jovanovic, 66 U.S. and 12 foreign engineers were elected to this prestigious group of engineers in 2015, bringing the total NAE membership to 2,484.

Yungtaek Jang and Milan M. Jovanovic of Delta Power Electronics Laboratory (DPEL) received the Best Paper Award 2013
from the IEEE PowerElectronics Society

.....Each year, the editor and associate editors of the IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics recognize the three best papers among those published in the Transactions during the preceding calendar year. This year, the paper "The TAIPEI Rectifier—A New Three-Phase Two-Switch ZVS PFC DCM Boost Rectifier" coauthored by Yungtaek Jang and Milan M. Jovanovic was selected for the best paper award among 521 papers published in the Transactions on Power Electronics during year 2013. The selection of the paper is a high honor and a tribute to the fine research quality, presentation, and potential impact that the research has to the field. The selection process was rigorous and went through multiple review levels and votes before the paper was selected for an award. On behalf of DPEL, Yungtaek Jang received the award at the Sixth Annual IEEE Energy Conversion Congress and Expo (ECCE) held from September 14 to 18, 2014, in Pittsburg, PA.

Dr. Yungtaek Jang Named IEEE Fellow

....Dr. Yungtaek Jang, Senior Member of Technical Staff at Delta Power Electronics Lab., has been named a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) for 2016. Yungtaek was recognized by IEEE for contributions to efficiency optimization of ac-dc power supplies.
.....Being named an IEEE Fellow is a distinction reserved for selected IEEE members with extraordinary accomplishments. The total number of Fellows selected in any one year does not exceed one-tenth of one percent of the total voting Institute membership.
.....Yungtaek was born in Seoul, Korea. He received the B. S. degree from Yonsei University, Seoul, Korea, in 1982, and the M. S. and Ph. D. degrees from the University of Colorado, Boulder, in 1991 and 1995, respectively, all in electrical engineering.
.....Since joining Delta in 1996, Yungtaek has been involved in the development of advanced technology for server, networking, and telecom power supplies. Recently, the primary focus of his R&D activities is on automotive power electronics, specifically, on-board chargers and dc/dc converters.
.....Yungtaek holds 30 U.S. patents and has published 81 journal and conference papers. Three of his journal papers received the IEEE best paper award.

Yuequan Hu, Laszlo Huber, and Milan M. Jovanovic of Delta Power Electronics Laboratory (DPEL) received Second Prize Paper Award 2012
from the IEEE Power Electronics Society

.....The paper "Single-stage, universal-input AC/DC LED driver with current-controlled variable PFC boost inductor," co-authored by Yuequan Hu, Laszlo Huber, and Milan M. Jovanovic from Delta Power Electronics Lab. (DPEL) in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, received the IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics' Second Prize Paper Award for 2013.
.....Every year, the IEEE Power Electronics Society recognizes the papers deemed best among those published in the IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics during the preceding year. The established Transactions review criteria places specific emphasis on originality, contribution to the field, extent to which the paper is supported by analysis and experimental evidence, and quality of presentation. In 2012, three first prize papers and five second prize papers were selected among 463 papers published in the IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics.

Laszlo Huber, Yungtaek Jang, and Milan M. Jovanovic of Delta Power Electronics Laboratory (DPEL) received the Best Paper Award 2008
from the IEEE Power Electronics Society

.....Each year, the editor and associate editors of the IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics recognize the three best papers among those published in the Transactions during the preceding calendar year. This award recognizes outstanding contributions in the multidisciplinary field of power electronics. This year, the paper "Performance Evaluation of Bridgeless PFC Boost Rectifiers" coauthored by Laszlo Huber, Yungtaek Jang, and Milan M. Jovanovic was selected for the best paper award among 313 papers published in the Transactions on Power Electronics during year 2008. On behalf of DPEL, Milan M. Jovanovic received the award at the First IEEE Energy Conversion Congress and Expo (ECCE) held from September 20 to 24, 2009, in San Jose, CA.
