Power Electronics Society

What is Power Electronics Society

The Power Electronics Society (PELS) is one of the fastest-growing technical societies of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). For over 35 years, the PELS has facilitated and guided the development and innovation in power electronics technology. This technology encompasses the effective use of electronic components, the application of circuit theory and design techniques, and the development of analytical tools for efficient conversion, control, and condition of electric power.Some of our members include distinguished award winners, practitioners, and preeminent researchers.

Our Mission

The objectives of the Power Electronics Society (PELS) shall be scientific, literary, and educational. PELS shall advance the theory and practice of electrical and electronics engineering and the allied arts and sciences and it shall promote a high level of technical excellence among its members. PELS shall aid in promoting close cooperation and exchange of technical information among its members and affiliates, and to this end shall hold meetings for the presentation of papers and their discussion, sponsor periodicals and special publications, and study and provide the needs of its members and affiliates through its committees.

About Power Electronics Society

The field of interest of the Society shall be the development and application of power electronic systems and technologies, which encompass the effective use of electronic components, the application of circuit theory and design techniques, and the development of analytical methods and tools for efficient electronic conversion, control, and conditioning of electric power to enable the sustainable use of energy.

Benefits of Joining Power Electronics Society

Collaborate with IEEE colleagues and member groups (online or in-person) to build a support group for your profession, industry, or project. Local members with similar technical interests can engage in professional exchanges and share benefits through PELS's regional chapters in the United States, Canada, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Latin America, Asia, and Oceania.

IEEE houses an unrivaled network of advisors, experts, and professionals that can help shape your career, offer resources to acquire new skills, advance professional development, and provide numerous opportunities for involvement, recognition, and reward. PELS offers a diverse array of awards, committees, conferences, publications, tools, and workshops that enlighten and inspire PELS members.

Membership grants engineers, researchers, scientists, and others involved in power electronics research access to the largest library of computer science, electrical engineering, and electronics technical literature as well as the latest events, industry news, and technology trends.
