EPE-ECCE 2017 Call for Pqapers closes on Dec. 12

Transition in mass and individual transportation is happening right now as we see particularly in Europe. The number of vehicles powered by electric motors, from small motorcycles to large buses,

is growing. The first countries plan to suspend the registration of cars with internal combustion engines. Charging stations are becoming part of the landscape of our cities. As all great changes in the history of our civilization this transition will take years, and the final result will be, most likely, different from today's expectations. One only thing is for sure – it will not happen without power electronics. The same statement is true for the more and more popular renewable energies, which together with the e-mobility are reducing CO2 emissions and, therefore, limit climate changes. Also, increasing the efficiency of power supplies reduces electrical energy consumption and may be counted as another way to reach that goal. Power electronics is also becoming crucial in electric power systems, as it includes more distributed electricity generation and various types of energy storage technologies.

In response to all these challenges, novel topologies, control structures and power components are being introduced to improve performance of power electronics systems. Especially, new wide bandgap materials (SiC & GaN) are a serious chance for a big step forward in a broad range of applications.

A wide spectrum of these topics will be addressed during the European conference in power electronics – EPE’17 ECCE Europe. Researchers, application engineers and experts from academia and industry will meet to discuss and exchange ideas.

The Call for Papers will close on Dec. 12, 2016. More details under
