Ed Schweitzer honored by IEEE for his achievements in power systems

Ed Schweitzer III, founder and president of Pullman’s Schweitzer Engineering Labs, was presented a 2012 IEEE Medal in Power Engineering last weekend during a ceremony in Boston.

He was among 26 men and women saluted by the IEEE for achievements in technology, computing and engineering. IEEE is the world’s largest technical professional association.

The award recognized Schweitzer’s role in “revolutionizing the performance of electrical power systems with computer-based protection and control equipment.”

His company, with offices in Pullman and Lewiston, designs and manufactures a range of products used in the electric power industry. Its products provide backup protection for distributed power applications and help utilities keep accurate measurements of power flowing through transmission lines.
