President's Message: December 2018
Victory Lap? No, Pass the Baton!
by Alan Mantooth
This is my last column as President of the IEEE Power Electronics Society (PELS), and while it is tempting to take a victory lap, that simply is not the nature of our organization. Rather, as my predecessors have done, I will hand off the baton into the capable hands of our next President, Frede Blaabjerg. However, it is an appropriate time to give you a summary of how far we have come in the last two years, thanks in large part to our volunteers and staff. Read More...

Upcoming Webinar: Design Automation for Power Electronics
Thur, Feb 28, 2019 12:30 PM EST
Presenters: Alan Mantooth, University of Arkansas; Miroslav Vasić, Universidad Politécnica de Madrid
Abstract: Recent trends in power electronics are driving the need to revisit design tools and capabilities. Wide bandgap technologies have been demonstrated to hold great promise for achieving higher efficiencies, increased volumetric density, and provide system level cost benefits relating to thermal management. However, the faster switching devices and circuits tend to generate more EMI that can disrupt surrounding components, not to mention adversely impacting their own controls to such a degree that failures can be induced.
