This TC organizes annual IEEE Workshop on Control and Modeling for Power Electronics (COMPEL). The details of the workshop, such as general chair, location, date, budget, will be approved by the TC meeting. In general case, the workshop is held in June of each year. The location and general chair of the COMPEL workshop will generally be approved in TC's APEC meeting two years earlier and the final budget will be approved in TC's ECCE meeting two years earlier. For example, the location and general chair of COMPEL 2016 will be approved in TC's meeting in APEC 2014 and the budget of COMPEL 2016 will be approved in TC's meeting in ECCE 2014 and then approved in PELS meetings committee meeting in ECCE 2014.

This TC also organizes IEEE International Conference on DC Microgrid (ICDCM).  Our ability to generate, store, and use DC electricity locally without the need for long-range transmission and distribution network enables the possibility for transformational changes in the electricity infrastructure. The use of DC electricity enhances system-wide efficiency. DC grids and microgrids powered by distributed clean energy sources such as solar PV systems can sustainably power the needs of all human beings equitably around the world.
