The rector of Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute, academician of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine Mykhailo Zgurovsky, addressed the audience with a welcoming speech. He said that Valentyn Chermalykh had created an authoritative scientific school of specialists in the implementation of technologies for the use of automated electric drives with semiconductor converters. After graduating from Donetsk Polytechnic Institute, he worked as the head of the Department of Automated Electromechanical Systems in Industry and Transport at Kryvyi Rih Mining Institute. Under his leadership, several educational and research laboratories were created and equipped with state-of-the-art equipment. Candidate and later Doctor of Technical Sciences V.M. Chermalikh was elected Head of the Department of Automation of Mining Industry (now Automation of Electrotechnical and Mechatronic Complexes (AEMC) of KPI in 1973. Valentyn Chermalykh had more than 250 printed scientific works, including four books. His research work resulted in forty inventions. He also trained three doctors and 35 candidates of technical sciences, including foreign scientists.
