From a New Open Access Journal to PELS Day, Society Activities Continue to Growby Frede Blaabjerg
I have just returned from the 2019 Applied Power Electronics Conference and Exposition (APEC) in Anaheim, California., which is one of the largest conferences (more than 6000 attendees) in power electronics and includes a very large exhibition. It was quite amazing to see how fast wide bandgap (WBG) power devices have entered the mainstream, and how the adoption of these devices has accelerated. In particular, some of the demonstrations in automotive designs were quite remarkable. Read More...

Upcoming Webinar: Remaining Challenges for Designs with High Power Wide Bandgap Power Devices- A Circuit Perspective presented by Dr. Jin Wang
- Tues., Sept 3, 2019 11:00 AM EDT
Abstract: The talk will focus on high power applications of Gallium Nitride (GaN) and Silicon Carbide (SiC) devices. It will start with a brief introduction of examples of state-of-the-art high power GaN and SiC converters. Then, common challenges that are faced by both GaN and SiC devices including gate drive designs, high dv/dt caused reflective waves, electromagnetic interference, partial discharge, etc. will be discussed. Specific challenges for the implementations of SiC in medium and
