Call for Papers

The 9th International Conference on Power Electronics and Drive Systems (PEDS’11) will be held in Singapore on 5 – 8 December 2011. The conference is a biennial event and is recognized as one of the major series of conferences in power electronics and drive systems. PEDS'11 continues to retain its tradition of high quality conference and will open up an opportunity for academics and industrial professionals worldwide to exchange their knowledge of the state-of-the-art power electronics and drive technologies and applications. The 4-day programme will feature tutorials, technical paper presentations and an exhibition. Papers presented in conference will be included in IEEEXplore Digital Library and indexed by EI Compendex. The Technical Program Committee will select the top 10% of the papers to be forwarded to the IEEE Transactions on Industry Applications for editorial board’s consideration for publication.

The range of technical topics includes but not limited to:

  • Power semiconductors, Power integrated circuits (PIC), passive components and packaging technologies
  • Motor drives and motion control
  • Analysis and design of electrical machines
  • Hard-switching and soft-switching static power converters and UPS
  • Applications of power electronics in power system and generation/FACTS
  • Power quality issues, harmonic problems and solutions
  • EMI/EMC issues
