MADISON, Wis.— The IEEE’s Industry Applications Society has included professor Bulent Sarlioglu in its 2019-2020 Distinguished Lecturer and Prominent Lecturer (DLPL) program.

Sarlioglu is a senior member of the IEEE, associate professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, as well as Associate Director of the Wisconsin Electric Machines and Power Electronics Consortium. Sarlioglu also organizes, directs, and teaches power electronics and electric machine short courses in the Department of Engineering Professional Development (EPD).

“The inclusion of professor Sarlioglu in this program will give many the opportunity to learn from a true expert in the field, someone with vast industry and research experience,” professor Douglas Reindl, EPD’s Department Chair, stated.



Sarlioglu’s lecture topics include: design of permanent magnet and flux switching PM machines; wide bandgap based power electronics, common mode emissions in motor drives and mitigation techniques; and future trends of electric aircraft.

The DLPL program allows local IEEE chapters to bring in national and international experts to speak at their chapter meetings.
