Sponsored Conferences

As the Premier Event in Applied Power ElectronicsTM, APEC focuses on the practical aspects of the power electronics business.  This is not just a designer's conference: APEC has something of interest for anyone involved in power electronics. 

COMPEL brings together practicing engineers and researchers from industry, government, and academia for interactive discussions on the latest advances in analysis, modeling, and control of power electronics.  Special emphasis in COMPEL is on advanced controls of switched-mode power converters, integrated circuits for small power and power management, as well as analysis, modeling, and control of power electronics in energy efficiency and renewable energy applications. 

ECCE is the premier IEEE conference for electric machines, industrial drives, and power electronic converters and devices.  This new conference combines the former IEEE Power Electronics Specialists Conference (PESC) with the Industrial Power Conversion Systems Department (Electrical Machines, Industrial Drives, Industrial Power Converter, and Power Electronics Devices and Components Committees) of the IEEE Industry Applications Society Annual Meeting.  ECCE provides a forum for the exchange of information among practicing professionals in the energy conversion business.  The emphasis is to bring together the users and researchers of energy conversion systems and subsystems with an emphasis on the technical content of the papers and on the quality of the exposition.  The scope of the conference includes all technical aspects of the design, manufacture, application, and marketing of devices, circuits, and systems related to electrical energy conversion technology.

The role of power electronics in electric utilities is changing from an enabling technology for renewable generation and energy efficiency improvement, to an underpinning technology for grid modernization.  Electronic power transmission and distribution grids, which can efficiently manage electricity among power electronic-based sources and loads, are being envisioned for the future at eGrid.

The IEEE ESTS invites commercial and military ship end-users, shipbuilders, port operators, classification societies, machinery and equipment manufacturers, research institutes, universities, and other organizations around the world to present their views, opinions, experiences with studies, research, designs, and future advances on these subjects.

The IEEE ICDCM brings together researchers, engineers, and students from academia, government, and industry for an interactive discussion on the latest advances in DC Grid Technologies and Applications.

The IEEE IEMDC seeks to address all aspects of design, operation, control, and systems integration of electric machines, electromechanical actuators, and the controls and power electronic drives that implement their applications. 

INTELEC is an annual conference that examines and analyzes the latest developments in communications energy systems and related power processing devices and circuits.  Presentations include new developments in power electronics and telecommunications power systems, including DC power plants, powering architectures, AC systems, DC-DC converters, batteries, prime power systems, grounding, physical and thermal design, alternative power (e.g., engines, fuel cells, etc.), and building and equipment cooling systems.

ITEC is aimed at helping the industry in the transition from conventional vehicles to advanced electrified vehicles.  The conference is focused on components, systems, standards, and grid interface technologies, related to efficient power conversion for all types of electrified transportation, including electric vehicles (EVs), hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) as well as heavy-duty, rail, and off-road vehicles, airplanes, and ships.

PEDG brings together the world's experts in renewable power and distributed generation.  This international symposium, sponsored by the PELS and organized by the PELS Technical Committee on Sustainable Energy Systems (TC 5), allows experts on power electronics and distributed generation to meet, exchange ideas, and present on the latest technological advances.  PEDG features keynote speeches, tutorials, and regular technical sessions on the theory, analysis, design, testing, and deployment of power electronics for distributed generation and renewable energy systems.

Predictive control is an important and advanced control technique to control power electronics converters and drives, which can be implemented with modern microprocessors at a low cost, allowing them to solve the problems of difficult multivariable control.  The use of predictive control offers several advantages: a very intuitive approach, no need for linear controllers and modulators, the simple inclusion of nonlinearities and restrictions, etc.  Model predictive control (MPC), an attractive alternative to linear control and modulation, is the current state-of-the-art research, as well as a popular subject for academic and industrial research.

PwrSoc is the leading international forum for the discussion of the challenges and opportunities in technology, business, and supply chain, intent on advancing the miniaturization and integration of power conversion and power management solutions.  The workshop features presentations and dialog sessions of advanced technologies with global academic and industry experts aimed at miniaturizing power management solutions through system architecture, circuits and topology, packaging, and passive components.  The Power Sources Manufacturers Association (PSMA) and the PELS are joint sponsors for this workshop.

SPEC is the most important forum for researchers in power electronics in the southern hemisphere.  It offers an ideal opportunity for researchers, engineers, academics, and students from all over the world to bring the latest technological advances and applications in power electronics to the southern hemisphere, as well as to network and promote the discipline, strengthening the relationship between industry, academia, and professionals.  Cutting-edge researchers will present plenary speeches during a four-day program that also features tutorials and technical sessions on theory, analysis, design, testing, and advances within the field of power electronics.

SDEMPED was established as the only international symposium entirely devoted to the diagnostics of electrical machines, power electronics, and drives.  The symposium is now a regular biennial event.

WiPDA is sponsored by the PELS and provides a forum for device scientists, circuit designers, and application engineers to share technology updates, research findings, development experience, and application knowledge.

Without the burden of physical power cables, wireless power technologies using magnetic coupling transfer power from a few milliwatts to hundreds of kilowatts with transfer distances from a few millimeters to hundreds of millimeters.  It makes life certainly more convenient, comfortable, and productive than any previous generations.  In the future, wireless power technologies will be completely integrated into daily lives by supplying power to personal electronic devices, wearable/implantable electronics, home appliances, and electric vehicles.  The WoW brings the world's experts in wireless power technologies and features keynote speeches and regular technical sessions on the theory, analysis, design, testing, and applications of wireless power technologies as a part of Wireless Power Week.
