RICHLAND, Wash. – A power grid researcher at the Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory has been elected to the rank of fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. Henry Huang was recognized by IEEE for his contributions to dynamic analysis and high performance computing in power systems

Huang is a chief engineer in the electricity infrastructure and buildings division at PNNL, where he leads a group focused on optimizing the performance of energy systems. His research focuses on stability and control of electrical power systems, high-performance computing applications in energy, and power grid data analytics. He has authored more than 140 peer-reviewed publications and was the recipient of the 2009 IEEE Power and Energy Society Outstanding Young Engineer Award. He earned a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering from Huazhong University in Wuhan, China; and a doctorate of philosophy from Tsinghua University in Beijing, China.  He will be recognized with the rest of this year's fellow class at the IEEE general meeting in July in Chicago.

IEEE is the world's largest technical professional society, with more than 420,000 members internationally.  Fellows are elected for extraordinary accomplishments in IEEE fields of interest, including engineering and computing. No more than one-tenth of one percent of the total membership may be elected to the rank of fellow each year.
