IEEE Publishing makes the exchange of technical knowledge possible with integrity, accuracy, the highest quality, and the greatest impact.  PELS seeks to publish the highest quality scientific and educational materials in the areas within its scope.  The Society covers the globe to bring comprehensive coverage and breaking news on emerging trends, mature and cutting-edge technologies, research breakthroughs, and so much more.  PELS seeks to publish these materials in the most timely fashion possible, with wide and rapid dissemination to its members and the public at large.

For paper authors: The use of artificial intelligence (AI)-generated text (e.g., by ChatGPT) in an article shall be disclosed in the acknowledgements section of any paper submitted IEEE Conference or Periodical. The section of the paper that use AI-generated text shall have a citation to the AI system used to generate the text.

For paper reviewers: The use of artificial intelligence (AI)-generated text (e.g., by ChatGPT) in a paper review process should be done with extreme caution. Using such language tools to improve the writing for better communication with the authors may be permitted. However, uploading a confidential manuscript to such a tool to generate review comments is a clear and serious violation of IEEE review policies.


PELS Publications

The IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics (TPEL) is an internationally subscribed monthly journal that covers fundamental technologies used in the control and conversion of electric power.  Topics include control in power electronics, discrete and integrated semiconductors, EMI/EMC, high power converters, lighting applications, low power converters, passive components and materials, power electronics in drives, power quality and utility applications, reliability and diagnostics, renewable energy, and wireless power transfer.  This archival journal is the premier place to publish the latest research for the power electronics community.

The IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics - Letters  (Letters) publication encourages papers addressing pioneering ideas and formative concepts in power electronics as well as important new and timely results and concepts.  Letters are focused on shorter papers that are published more rapidly than TPEL and a particular emphasis is placed on contributions with high value for rapid publication.  Oftentimes PELS's Letters give the fastest review times of all publications.

Power electronics has matured as a discriminating technology for a wide variety of applications in appliances, commercial settings, energy efficiency, handheld devices, industrial settings, and transportation.  The technology has evolved tremendously to approach a wide range of applications and implementations that push limits in dynamics and energy conversion performance.  As a result, the amount of research work for emerging and selected topics as well as the need for close collaborations among academia, industry, and research are growing at an unprecedented speed.  The challenge in the coming years lies in developing new techniques at the lowest possible cost, size, and weight for emerging applications.  To address this technology trend and to serve members better, the IEEE Journal of Emerging and Selected Topics in Power Electronics (JESTPE) was launched.  JESTPE strives to publish special issues and sections on timely topics in emerging technology areas as well as general papers in power electronics.  Its technical scope is the same as its well-established sister publication, TPEL.

The IEEE Electrification Magazine is a quarterly magazine dedicated to disseminating information on all matters related to microgrids onboard electric vehicles, ships, trains, planes, and off-grid applications.  Microgrids refer to an electric network in a car, a ship, a plane, or an electric train, which have a limited number of sources and multiple loads.  Off-grid applications include small-scale electricity supply in areas away from high-voltage power networks.  Feature articles focus on advanced concepts, technologies, and practices associated with all aspects of electrification in the transportation and off-grid sectors from a technical perspective in synergy with nontechnical areas, such as business, environmental, and social concerns.
