2019 EPE ECCE Europe Conference Presentation

AIMS OF THE CONFERENCE

EPE ECCE Europe is the place for specialists in power electronics, systems and components, to present papers and attend sessions on state-of-the-art technology in this challenging and evolutionary sector. The conference aims to be a meeting forum for researchers, developers and specialists from academia and industry. Papers are encouraged on all topics described hereunder for interdisciplinary discussions of new ideas, research, development, applications and the latest advances in the field of power electronics and adjustable speed drives. A characteristic trend from previous EPE ECCE Europe Conferences has been an increasingly large industrial participation, as well as growing exhibition, which allows for enhanced exchanges between academia and industry.

ORGANIZATION AND VENUE

The Power Electronics community will gather in Genova, Italy, from 2 to 6 September 2019, to exchange views on research progresses and technological developments in the various topics described hereunder. On Monday 2 September a number of tutorials will be organised and several technical visits are planned on Friday 6 September. The 21stConference on Power Electronics and Applications (and Exhibition), EPE’19 ECCE (Energy Conversion Congress and Expo) Europe is co-sponsored by the EPE Association and IEEE PELS. It will take place at the Magazzini del Cotone Conference Centre in downtown Genova.

LIST OF TOPICS

Electrical energy generation and supply to users are on the transition to distributed generation from traditional to renewable energy sources and development of Smart grids on “macro” “micro” and “nano” levels. Very fast research and development of smart DC grids are highly challenging and power electronics is the driving force of those new technologies. Power electronics in mechatronic and adaptronic systems, industrial robotics and wide range health care and biorobots with artificial intelligence are topics for further research.

The explosive development of electric mobility, current and expected, will provide new challenges and opportunities; on one side, the progressive removal of fossil fuels, both in transport and heating/cooling, will increase the usage of electric energy; on the other side, a vast number of batteries, both on wheels and in fast-charging stations, may contribute to resolving the intrinsic unpredictability of renewables. Ultrafast vehicle charging stations, in particular, are expected to be realized with significant storage capacity.

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

A wide spectrum of topics will be addressed during the largest European conference in power electronics – EPE’19ECCE Europe. Researchers, application engineers and experts from academia and industry will meet to discuss and exchange ideas.
