This award was first presented at the Fall 1997 50th Anniversary Meeting of the ICC.
This Insulated Conductors Committee Dr. George H. Bahder Memorial Award is presented for engineering contributions that have enhanced the quality of insulated conductor cable systems utilized for transmission, distribution, and station circuits. This Award will be conferred only when deemed appropriate by the Insulated Conductors Committee. It is not either an annual or time scheduled Award. The Award will consist of a plaque and a $2,500 donation, which will be made, in the recipient's name to an electric power engineering department at a university or college of the recipient's choice. The department will be requested to use the donation as an educational scholarship to support a graduate or undergraduate student. The department will also be requested to identify the individual supported by this scholarship.
This Award can be conferred posthumously. For this eventuality the heirs will receive the plaque and designate which university or college is to receive the donation.
Bruce selected the Electrical Power Engineering Department of Arizona State University.
These funds supported Ganpathy Iyer while a graduate student there.

Dielectric Properties of Epoxy Based Nanocomposites for High Voltage Insulation; Ganpathy Iyer, School of Electrical, Energy and Computer Engineering, Ravi Gorur, School of Electrical, Energy and Computer Engineering, Ranko Richert, Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Andrej Krivda, ABB Corporate Research and Lars E. Schmidt, ABB Corporate Research; IEEE Transactions on Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation, Vol. 18, No. 3, June 2011
John selected Georgia Tech NEETRAC for the Donation.
These funds supported Abhishek Chandrasekhar, a Georgia Tech Senior in Electrical Engineering.
Under the ICC sponsorship, Abhishek developed a model to calculate the voltage stress around contaminants in cables. He looked at the probability of failure as a function of contaminant orientation, dielectric constant and location.
A PowerPoint presentation entitled Insulation Contamination - Time for a Second Look is now available on the ICC Downloads section of our website, which serves as his report on the work performed. This work is very interesting and has some important implications for groups that set contamination limits.
Carlos selected UCONN for the donation. Two letters of appreciation from UCONN. These funds supported Dr. Chunchuan (Charles) Xu while a graduate student there. Much of his work was reported during presentations at the ICC. The following copyrighted articles are now available on the ICC Downloads section of our website:
