IEEE Awards Vanner of Ohio Engineering Team at ITEC14 Conference

HILLIARD, OH -- (Marketwired) -- 06/27/14 -- Vanner Senior Engineer-Power Conversion Specialist Alexander (Sasha) Isurin and Alec Cook, Vice President Engineering and Chief Technology Officer, were the recipients of the Best Paper Award at the 2014 Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Transportation Electrification Conference and Expo in Detroit, Michigan.

Isurin presented the paper titled "Philosophy of Topology and Components Selection for Cost and Performance Converters" at the conference where he detailed the critical requirements of electronics equipment for the automotive industry -- Cost, Reliability, and Electromagnetic Compatibility. The automotive industry more than others depends on specifications equivalent to the military (Mil Spec) while keeping overall costs to a minimum in order to provide a marketable product.

"We're very honored that Sasha's and Alec's paper was selected as the conference's best paper," explains Steve Funk, President of Vanner Incorporated. "The automotive and commercial vehicle energy management market is extremely competitive and to have IEEE recognize the significance of their findings speaks volumes about the quality engineering team we have here at Vanner. It also reinforces the Vanner business model and commitment to bring cost effective advanced energy management for vehicles to market. With new topologies coming from Vanner engineering who are the best of the best, we bring to market cost effective designs with 100 percent on time delivery."

Sasha Isurin presented the paper at the conference that focused on methodologies engineers must use and topologies to consider in power product design. It was part of a multi-day conference intended to advance IEEE's mission of providing sustainable technologies for humanity.

"The purpose of the paper was to bring awareness to the idea that when an engineer is charged with developing a product for the automotive industry it must consider many factors including material costs, their relationships with each other and how they can be best utilized without sacrificing quality and reliability," explains Sasha Isurin. "This topology is right in the Vanner wheelhouse. We are committed to making the most reliable sustainable technologies that integrate well with an overall package. We are equally committed to making sure those technologies are cost-effective and allow the buyer to maintain a consistent profit guarantee."
