The IEEE PELS Footprint Is Expanding Across the Globe

by Frede Blaabjerg - I have now completed one year of my term as president of the IEEE Power Electronics Society (PELS) and time is passing so quickly – in a good way.  Our Society is very dynamic, with many  new ideas and initiatives, and it is getting better each day. On 12 December 2019, we launched the first PELS online webinar series, which covered microinverters for photovoltaics. Read More...

Abstract: The need for an efficient power management solution has never been more critical across virtually all electronic devices and systems from low power to high power, smartphones to data centers, battery-powered components to renewable-energy-powered grids, and from stationary systems to aircraft. The key, common challenge for power management in these systems is to satisfy increasingly demanding requirements in terms of efficiency, size, reliability, and cost, simultaneously. This talk will present a unique flow of integrated power converter architectures, topologies, and circuit techniques to address this challenge. Particularly, the speaker will discuss his group research work on a family of hybrid converters that achieve high efficiency for high output power density and current density. Read More..
