George Anders’ expertise has contributed toward setting the standard for rating electric power cables, which has provided significant economic benefits to the power industry. His computational techniques using analytical and finite element methods enable engineers to accurately rate cable circuits. He also developed optimization techniques for selecting the most economic conductor sizes, providing accurate calculations to avoid costly oversizing of buried cables. The software for steady-state and emergency ratings of underground cables, which he developed, is used throughout the world and is considered the industry standard for power cable rating calculations. Anders’ contributions to early leak detection methods are also helping to reduce the costs of detection, location, clean up, and repair related to cable leaks.
An IEEE Fellow, Anders is a professor in the Department of Microelectronics and Computer Science, Lodz University of Technology, Lodz, Poland.
