Prof. Mazumder to serve as the Chair for 2021 IEEE Power Electronics for Distributed Generation Systems (PEDG) Conference

The 2021 IEEE 12th International Symposium on Power Electronics for Distributed Generation Systems (PEDG 2021) will be held between June 27-30, 2021. This international symposium, sponsored by IEEE Power Electronics Society (PELS) and organized by the PELS Technical Committee on Sustainable Energy Systems, will provide a venue for experts to present the results of their cutting-edge research in power electronics and distributed generation (DG) systems. PEDG 2021 will feature all-virtual plenary speeches, tutorials, and regular technical and poster sessions on theory, analysis, design and development, testing, deployment, and impact of power electronics for DG and systems, energy storage systems, and sustainable sources.


Call For Papers (Digest Deadline: December 15, 2020)

Prospective participants are invited to submit an extended abstract of their original work. The document should be in English and should not exceed five single-column double-spaced pages (excluding references). The submitted abstracts will be subjected to a peer-review process. Detailed instructions on preparation of the abstracts and the submission process will be available on the symposium website.

Technical papers are solicited on any subject pertaining to the scope of the symposium that includes, but is not limited to, the following major topics:

Track 1: Power Electronics for Sustainable Sources

a.New power-converter controls for wind, solar PV, CHP, wave and tidal, fuel cell, other DERs

b.High efficiency power conversion for sustainable sources: efficiency improvements using new topologies, WBG/UWBG power semiconductor devices, and magnetic materials

c.Multi-port or multi-level power converters and applications

d.Grid integration using solid state transformers, controllable distribution flexible alternating current transmission systems (D-FACTS), and medium voltage DC distribution

e.Islanding detection, protection, and standards of DG systems

Track 2: Energy Storage Systems

a.Power electronics for battery, supercapacitor, and hybrid energy storage systems

b.Power electronics for wireless and wired charging/super-charging and operation of electric, hybrid electric, and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles
