6108 Glebov           Discovered 1971 Aug. 18 by T. M. Smirnova at the Crimean Astrophysical Observatory.
Named in honor of academician Igor' Alekseevich Glebov (b. 1914), outstanding scientist in the field of electrical engineering and power engineering, since 1975 director of the Science Research Institute of Electric Machine Engineering in St. Petersburg. Glebov is renowned for his work in control systems for power turbogenerators and his application of superconductivity in electric machine engineering. Name suggested by the Institute of Applied Astronomy and the Institute of Problems of Electrophysics of RAS.
