Charles John Mozina
Charles John Mozina’s expertise in generator protection contributed to standards for protecting generators across many industries. A key contributor to IEEE working groups on power systems protection, Mr. Mozina has helped diagnose problems and provide solutions to ensure safe and reliable equipment operation. He was the lead author of the IEEE Tutorial on the Protection of Synchronous Generators, which became the leading tool for educating engineers on how to protect synchronous generators. He also provided leadership and major technical content for a working-group effort that developed hybrid grounding. Other important contributions helped alert the industry to off-line inadvertent generator energizing hazards and the inclusion of protection methods for these events in the IEEE C37.102 generator protection standard.
An IEEE Life Fellow, Mr. Mozina is currently a consultant residing in Palm Harbor, FL, USA.
