IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics

The IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics (TPEL) is a monthly publication.  Papers are available in Xplore shortly after acceptance. The journal’s scope includes new results in the field of power electronics. For example, papers that treat original component, device, module, circuit, control, system, or application issues are of interest. Papers that do not show sufficient overlap with interest in the power electronics field (for example topics such as device physics, component manufacturing technologies, and circuit theory) should be submitted to other IEEE TRANSACTIONS that cover these fields. Authors should pay particular attention to documenting their work in relation to the known literature. Papers of a historical or tutorial nature within the scope of this publication will also be considered.

Manuscript Submission

The Transactions on Power Electronics uses the same online submission system in Manuscript Central ( as the Letters on Power Electronics. Therefore, authors who have an account in Manuscript Central for the Transactions can also use it for submitting Letters.

For detailed information on paper submission, including correct formats, file types, etc., please review our updated Guidelines for Manuscript Submission to IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics. Beginning in January 2019 all submissions should be in double-column format; to assist authors with these changes we are providing an IEEE TPEL Submission Template.

If you are a researcher in the power electronics industry or are aspiring for a university career, establishing your publications portfolio is essential. Publication in the prestigious Transactions on Power Electronics journal will help elevate your career to new heights!  

Active Content/Multimedia/Graphic Abstracts

IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics encourages authors to submit Active Content/Multimedia files, such as movies, simulation files, power points, etc., with their papers if they believe the files will enhance the quality of the manuscript. All materials should be uploaded together at the time of submission. For further information, please read our Active Content/Multimedia Instructions.

For further information concerning tools and information to assist with article preparation and submission, the proof review process, and ordering reprints please visit the IEEE Author Digital Tool Box.

Prize Paper Awards

Each year, The Editor and Associate Editors of the IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics recognize the 1st prize papers and 2nd prize papers deemed best among those published in the Transactions during the preceding calendar year. The established Transactions review criteria are used as the basis for the Prize Paper selection. Specific emphasis is placed on originality; contribution to the field; extent to which the paper is supported by analysis and experimental evidence; and quality of presentation, including the effective use of illustrations.  In addition to a certificate presented to each author, an award of $1000 is shared equally among the 1st prize paper authors and $500 to be shared equally among the 2nd prize paper authors.

Outsanding Reviewer Acknowledgements

Each Year TPEL receives thousands of manuscript submissions from authors all over the world hoping to publish in our journal. To fairly and effectively evaluate these papers and letters, we rely on the volunteer efforts of thousands of expert reveiwers. We publish only the highest quality papers in the field of Power Electronics and our reviewers include the most outstanding scholars and industry members in our field. To maintain the high standards of our publication, we rely on the dedicated work of our reviewers. The reviewers must be considered experts in their particular field for our editorial board to send a manuscript to them for their evaluation. To show our appreciation for the time and effort our reviewers dedicate to each and every paper, each year we acknowledge ten or more individuals who have made an outstanding contribution in terms of both the number and the quality of reviews they completed in the previous calendar year.
