He has also served terms as the President of the IEEE Standards Association and as Vice President of Standards Activities of the IEEE. Mr. Migliaro, elected a Fellow of the IEEE in 1988, is an electrical engineer and is one of the world's foremost authorities on the design, installation, operation, maintenance and testing of stationary battery and dc systems.
In addition to his experience in standards he has more than 50 years of experience in the design of electrical auxiliary systems for power generating stations and large industrial power systems and is licensed as a professional engineer in the United States. Mr. Migliaro has been recognized by his peers for his work in the area of stationary batteries having received the IEEE Standards Board Standards Medallion in 1988 for "significant contributions to battery standards." His Fellow citation was for "contributions to the application and standardization of battery technology for industrial and utility power systems." In 1996, he received the IEEE Charles Proteus Steinmetz Award for "outstanding contribution to the development of standards in the field of power engineering and his innovative leadership in the IEEE Standards development process" and was a recipient of an IEEE Third Millennium Medal in 2000.
Mr. Migliaro has published more than 40 technical papers and articles, has contributed to four books including the Handbook of Power Calculations and the Standard Handbook for Electrical Engineers and was the Editor of the first edition of the IEEE Stationary Battery Sourcebook. He is the developer of numerous seminars and workshops in the area of stationary batteries and dc systems. He has been a reviewer for a number of technical books in the field of power engineering.
Mr. Migliaro has been involved in professional activities for more than 50 years, primarily within the IEEE and UL. Mr. Migliaro is listed in a number of biographical references including American Men and Women of Science, Who's Who in America, Who's Who in the 21st Century, The Directory of International Biography, and 5,000 Personalities of the World.
