Accolades: Degeneff Honored by IEEE

Robert Degeneff ’74, emeritus professor of electrical, computer, and systems engineering, this summer received the 2008 Herman Electric Transmission and Distribution Award from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). The award honored Degeneff for his innovative and pioneering contributions to the computation and understanding of electrical systems and transformers.

“[Degeneff’s] technical contributions of almost four decades to the mathematical modeling of the transient response of transformers enabling more efficient equipment designs and the design of products to help reduce the adverse impact of power quality problems,” the IEEE said.

After serving in the U.S. Air Force and working at General Electric for 17 years, Degeneff joined the Rensselaer faculty in 1989. He is also president of Utility Systems Technologies, a company he founded in 1991. Degeneff received his master’s degree and doctorate in electric power engineering from Rensselaer, respectively, in 1967 and 1974.
