Congratulations to Professor Tseng King Jet, who has been elevated to IEEE Fellow with effect from 1 January 2022. This accolade is the highest grade of IEEE membership, reserved only for select members who have made extraordinary accomplishments in IEEE fields of interest.

Prof Tseng was recognised for his contributions to permanent magnet machines and distributed energy resources – achievements that are significant for the power and energy sector, as well as the transportation electrification sector. His academic work lies in the analysis, design, and control of permanent magnet machines and their associated applications.

These machines are increasingly adopted in electric railways, electric vehicles and electric propulsion for ships. Prof Tseng also researches the exploitation of distributed power generation and energy storage devices and systems. Distributed energy resources are increasingly used in sustainable urban electricity distribution.

Prof Tseng is the Programme Leader of the SIT-Newcastle University BEng (Hons) Electrical Power Engineering and SIT MSc Electrical and Electronic Engineering. He has more than 25 years of academic, research, industrial, and professional experience in electrical power and energy systems. He was the Head of Power Engineering Division in Nanyang Technological University and a Board Member of the Singapore Green Building Council. Prof Tseng co-founded the Singapore-Berkeley Building Efficiency and Sustainability for the Tropics (SinBerBEST) programme and the Electrical Power Systems Integration Laboratory @ NTU, a Rolls-Royce research facility. He is a Fellow of The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and The Institution of Engineers, Singapore (IES), and a Chartered Engineer with the UK Engineering Council. He has been listed among the Top 2% Scientists in the world by Stanford University.

“I thank all my seniors, peers, colleagues, as well as former students for helping me to attain this international recognition. I hope to inspire and mentor the next generation of engineers and researchers to achieve excellence in their work,” said Prof Tseng.

IEEE is the world’s largest technical professional organisation dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity. Fewer than 0.1% of voting members are selected annually to be elevated to IEEE Fellows. The elevation in member grade is attained through peer nomination and approval by the IEEE Board of Directors.
