IEEE Sister Societies

There are several societies within the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) that have overlapping areas of interest with the Power Electronics Society (PELS).  Follow the links below to learn more about these societies and their upcoming events.

pes The IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES) is a worldwide, non-profit association of more than 28,000 individuals engaged in the electric power energy industry.  Our mission is to be the leading provider of scientific information on electric power and energy for the betterment of society and the preferred professional development source for our members.  The scope of the Society embraces research, development, planning, design, construction, maintenance, installation and operation of equipment, structures, materials, and power systems for the safe, sustainable, economic and reliable conversion, generation, transmission, distribution, storage and usage of electric energy, including its measurement and control.
ias If your engineering interests are the needs of the industrial or commercial sector, the Industry Applications Society (IAS) will be a valuable professional connection.  One of the largest special interest societies within IEEE, the IAS focuses specifically on the unique needs of industry and commerce.  IAS is a source of professional power to its nearly 10,000 worldwide members.  Through a network of over 100 chapters globally, regional events and national and international conferences, the society keeps members abreast of current developments in the area of technology in electricity and electronics.  IAS enriches both its individual members and the industry as a whole through the sharing of specific industry-related solutions.
ies The Industrial Electronics Society (IES) through its members encompasses a diverse range of technical activities devoted to the application of electronics and electrical sciences for the enhancement of industrial and manufacturing processes.  These technical activities address the latest developments in intelligent and computer control systems, robotics, factory communications and automation, flexible manufacturing, data acquisition and signal processing, vision systems, and power electronics.  The Society continually updates its program of technical activities to meet the needs of modern industry.
IEEE DEIS logo The field of interest of the Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation Society (DEIS) shall be the study and application of dielectric phenomena and behavior and the development, characterization, and application of all gaseous, liquid, and solid electrical insulating materials and systems utilized in electrical and electronic equipment.  DEIS is also involved in the creation of voluntary engineering standards and the recommended practices related thereto.
