Joint Publications - Journal of Emerging and Selected Topics in Power Electronics

Power electronics has matured as a discriminating technology for a wide variety of applications from industrial to transportation to commercial to appliances to energy efficiency and to handheld devices. The technology has evolved tremendously to approach a wide range of applications and implementations that push limits in dynamics and energy conversion performance. Consequently, the amount of research work in emerging and selected topics and the need for close collaborations among industry, research, and academia are growing at an unprecedented speed. The challenge in the coming years lies in developing new techniques at the lowest possible cost, size and weight for emerging applications.  To address this technology trend and to serve our members better, the IEEE  Power Electronics Society and the IEEE Industry Applications Society co-sponsor IEEE  Journal of Emerging and Selected Topics in Power Electronics (J-ESTPE).

Statistics and the latest articles are available on the JESTPE IEEE Xplore page.
