The 10th IEEE International Conference on
Power Electronics and Drive Systems

22 - 25 April 2013
Kitakyushu, JAPAN

Welcome to IEEE PEDS 2013 Website

The 10th IEEE International Conference on Power Electronics and Drive Systems (PEDS'13) will be held in Kitakyushu, Japan on 22-25 April 2013. The conference is a biennial event and is recognized as one of the major series of conferences in power electronics and drive systems. PEDS'13 continues to retain its tradition of high quality conference and will open up an opportunity for academics and industrial professionals worldwide to exchange their knowledge of the state-of-the-art power electronics and drive technologies and applications. Papers presented in conference will be included in IEEE Xplore Digital Library and indexed by EI Compendex. The Technical Program Committee would be selecting the top 10% of the papers to be forwarded to the IEEE Trans. on IAS. PEDS Best Paper Awards will be selected and conferred from the full papers presented at the conference with an excellent evaluation score.
