   Ned Mohan has been awarded the IEEE
   Power and Energy Society (PES) Nari
   Hingorani Flexible AC Transmission
   Systems(FACTS) Award. the award
   recognizes individuals who have made 
   a major contribution to the state of the art
   of FACTS (Flexible AC Transmission System)
   technology and its applications. The IEEE
   definition of FACTS is: Alternating Current
   Transmission Systems incorporating power
   electronics-based and other static controllers
   to enhance controllability and power transfer
   capability. By this definition, the FACTS concept,
   in addition to the hardware, software and
   applications work carried out since its
   introduction, incorporates considerable prior
   work done on Static Var Compensators and
   other static Controllers. 
 
   The IEEE Power & Energy Society sponsors
   twenty-eight society-level awards. All award
   recipients are selected through a competitive,
   vetted nomination process. The IEEE PES
   and PES Governing Board will recognize
   Mohan at the Awards Dinner on July 29 at
   the IEEE PES General Meeting in National
   Harbor, MD (Washington, DC Metro Area).
