CFP: eGrid 2021 virtual November 8th to November 10th

The 6th IEEE Workshop on the Electronic Grid (eGrid 2021) will be held on November 8-10, 2021 on-line. This workshop is jointly sponsored by IEEE Power Electronics Society (PELS) and IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES). With the increasing applications of power electronics in the power grid, the two independent areas are integrated more closely. eGrid provides an international forum for academics and industry in the field of electronic grid to exchange information on their latest research ideas, progresses, developments, experiences, achievements, state-of-art technical trends, and applications. The previous eGrid workshops have been held with great success in Hefei China (eT&D 2016), Aalborg Denmark (eT&D 2017), Charleston USA (eGrid 2018), Xiamen China (eGrid 2019), and Aachen Germany (eGrid 2020). The conference papers will be indexed by EI and included in IEEE Xplorer. The Virtual Workshop will be linked to an event on inverter intensive microgrids and will propose a rich program of invited speakers from industry, research centers, and academia.
