NSIT witnessed the 4th IEEE International Conference on Power Electronics on 28th , 29th, and 30th January 2011. More than 150 people from outside NSIT attended the conference. It was a great platform for the power electronics professionals all over the world where in research papers were presented not only by undergraduate students and postgraduate students but also by faculty members. The registration fee for the faculty was 6000/- and 3000/- for students with an additional 50% discount for the IEEE members.
Dr. Prerna Gaur, Technical chair and convener of the event shares with us her experience of organizing the whole event with the support of IEEE NSIT student branch.
We received an overwhelming response for the research papers. In all we received 219 papers from 16 countries.‖ They followed a gruelling process of selecting the finest papers by getting them reviewed by various professors. Finally, 125 papers were registered for the conference.
These research papers were based on Power electronics and Machine Control, Power Electronics, Applications to power Systems, Power Converters Energy Sources, Control Engineering, and Semiconductor Devices.
The conference began on 28th January 2011 with paper presentations which was followed by the cultural night which comprised of a performance by NSIT Choreo team, 3 bands and a solo performance by a first year of NSIT. Apart from the paper presentations, the subsequent days also consisted of plenary sessions where discussions on power electronics and it’s future took place.
The conference was a huge success and brought together practicing engineers, academicians and researchers to meet and discuss various issues in power electronics, drives and power system technology. We hope to have more of these conferences so that the students can have more opportunities of interaction with experts in the chosen fields.
