Dr. Michael (Mischa) Steurer was a senior researcher at Florida State University in the Center for Advanced Power Systems (CAPS), where he was a leading contributor in many areas related to power electronics, including hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation, fast isolation device technology development, and fault management in medium voltage dc (MVDC) systems. Dr. Steurer received the B.S. and M.S. degrees in electrical engineering from the Vienna Technical University, Austria. He received the Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH), Zürich, Switzerland. Since 2001, Dr. Steurer conducted research at CAPS, working with a diverse group of collaborators and sponsors from government, academia, and industry. Dr. Steurer contributed to several societies and journals, including numerous publications and patents, as well as serving as reviewer, conference organizer, and contributing to standards. Much of Dr. Steurer’s research focused on shipboard power systems, and, in 2019, he was the recipient of the prestigious Solberg Award, presented by the American Society of Naval Engineers.
