On behalf of the EPE Conference Committee we
sincerely invite you to come to EPE 2009, the 13th International
European Power Electronics Conference and Exhibition, to be held in
September 2009 in Barcelona. Following the successful previous
conferences in Brussels, Grenoble, Aachen, Florence, Brighton,
Seville, Trondheim, Lausanne, Graz, Toulouse, Dresden and Aalborg, this
time EPE 2009 will take place in Barcelona, dynamic and representative
town of the Mediterranean area.
is a world leader in the field of Power Electronics with well known
research and industrial companies and many large academic laboratories
in all main European countries. In the past twenty six years, the EPE Conference has grown to become the largest in this field and it draws regularly the foremost technical contributors from industry and academia worldwide.
Electronics, as an enabling technology is becoming more and more
important and is the basis for many industrial processes, for the
rational use of the energy, for new technologies in individual and
mass transportation, areas that are rapidly growing requiring new
concepts in order to fulfil cost, reliability, miniaturization as well
as environmental requirements. The improvements of Power Semiconductor
together with new advanced topologies and embedded systems are pushing
Power Electronics towards high switching frequency and smaller,
cheaper, and more efficient realisations, opening possibilities for new
applications. Due to the new rules published by the EC on the
electrical energy production, transport and distribution, and also to
the technical problems arising from the interconnection of different
kinds of distributed energy production systems, high precision and
reliable controllers are needed. Along these ideas, the EPE 2009 will
have special tailored sessions of top industrial expert presentations
and round table meetings to discuss in depth and focus on future
developments in semiconductors, materials and components, topologies
and embedded systems. The Conference will complement the regular
program with new or emerging topics of particular interest to the power
electronics systems community that may also cut across and beyond
disciplines traditionally represented.
of the purposes of this Conference is to provide a possibility to
present and discuss about developments in the field of Power
Electronics with attendees coming from all over the world. The
Conference is a show window, where up-to-date research activities and
products are presented. A characteristic trend for the last EPE
Conferences has been the increasingly large industrial participation,
enhancing exchanges between academia and industry.
