Power Electronics Symposium

What can a power electronics research center
do for your business?

Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Power Electronics Symposium
Friday, July 22, 7:30 AM – 3:30 PM (EDT)
Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) Conference Center, Oak Ridge, Tennessee

This symposium is to inform industry and entrepreneurs of the capabilities, expertise, technologies, and opportunities available through ORNL's Power Electronics and Electrical Power Systems Research Center (PEEPSRC) for creation of solutions to existing problems and/or development of new business lines.

Researchers at PEEPSRC specialize in the areas of power electronics, electric machinery, and power systems. Research at the Center has dramatically improved the technology of advanced inverters, converters, motor control techniques, efficient, compact electric machines, and high voltage, high speed power systems.

Areas of expertise at the Center include:

  • Advanced Power Electronics
  • Electric Machines
  • Thermal Control for Power Electronics
  • Power Quality and Utility Interconnection

The symposium will include opportunities to meet research center management and lab researchers to discuss specific issues and presentations on:

  • PEEPSRC and its variety of labs
  • Specific technologies related to inverters,gate drives, permanent magnetless motors, power flow, wireless power, and grid interface algorithms
  • Government funding opportunities
  • How to do business with a national lab

ATTENTION: The registration deadline is July 20; foreign nationals require more time for processing, that deadline is July 14; please register as soon as possible.
