The PELS is the driving force behind numerous standards activities relating to power electronics and smart grid initiatives, including the following:
International Technology Roadmap of Power Electronics for Distributed Energy Systems (ITRD): This international roadmap is dedicated to providing a reliable and comprehensive roadmap to serve academia, industry, national labs, and research organizations
International Technology Roadmap for Wide Bandgap Power Semiconductors (ITRW): The PELS has led the way to develop an international roadmap for wide bandgap power semiconductors that encompasses devices, modules, packaging, and applications.
- Smart Grid Activities: Among the efforts of the PELS Standards Committee is participation in the IEEE-SA P2030.1 work on smart grid infrastructure. The IEEE-SA P2030.1 guide will provide a knowledge base for understanding and defining the electric grid infrastructure requirements to support various forms of electric sourced transportation, including both vehicle and mass transit. This is necessary to determine the future grid infrastructure requirements that must be implemented in phases in the future. The P2030.1 project is sponsored by the IEEE_SA Standards Coordinating Committee 40 (SCC40).
- Passive Components: Matt Wilkowski has been leading the Electronic Transformers Technical Committee effort with several standards relating to magnetic materials and components. PELS began a new working group on Testing and Characterization of Electrochemical Capacitors. A project authorization request (PAR) is being created and this working group will begin its work soon. If you wish to get involved, please contact the working group chair, Dr. John Miller.
