IEEE STARS Candidates:  

[edit] Background

Electrically powered devices are an integral part of today's society, and the introduction of power distribution grids, the electrification of transportation systems, and the harnessing of natural energy for electrical power was one of the most profound developments of the 19th century. Landmark events like Edison's Pearl Street Station (1882), the Vulcan Street Plant (1882) and London's Electrified Subway (1890) would lay the foundations for worldwide power distribution. Topics in this category pertain to the generation, distribution, manufacture and industry application of electrical power.

Technical societies within the IEEE whose areas overlap with this category include the IEEE Consumer Electronics Society, IEEE Industrial Electronics Society, IEEE Industrial Electronics Society, IEEE Industry Applications Society, IEEE Power & Energy Society, IEEE Power Electronics Society, and the IEEE Product Safety Engineering Society
