CPES & PEC Aim/Goal

The Center for Power Electronic Systems (CPES) Annual Conference presents the most recent advances in research produced at CPES. Technical presentations expose attendees to the variety of on-going projects, and promotes discussion between industry and academia. In addition, the conference showcases the most up-to-date hardware through a laboratory dialogue session where participants can observe the many hardware demonstrations first hand. Overall, the CPES Annual Conference has something of interest for anyone involved in power electronics and will include presentations on the following subjects:

  • Modeling and Control
  • Wide-Bandgap (WBG) Devices and their Applications
  • Semiconductor Packaging and Characterization
  • Novel Power Electronic Circuit Topologies
  • High Voltage Converters
  • Wireless Power Transfer
  • Power Electronics Components
  • EMI and Power Quality

The Power and Energy Center (PEC) researchers work to design, improve, and protect the world's power grids and equipment; understand and design distributed and alternative power systems; store electricity for later use; and develop equipment that increases function with less energy. With changing landscape in power system planning, operation and control domains, this conference serves as a platform to highlight our ongoing research to fellow peers and researchers in industries and other universities. This conference would introduce the attendees with the ongoing research at the PEC via a peer-reviewed set of technical papers and posters. Further, a live interactive demonstration on the state-of-the-art cyber-physical testbed at VT will be included. The conference would demonstrate the works pertaining to application of modern state of the art technologies in power system areas such as:

  • Cyber and physical systems security
  • Hybrid energy systems
  • Optimization
  • Machine learning applications
  • Electric transportation
  • Microgrid operation
  • Distribution system resiliency
