The  IEEE Power Electronics Society announces the  Twenty-first IEEE Workshop on Control and Modeling for Power Electronics, IEEE COMPEL 2020. This workshop brings together researchers, engineers and students from academia and industry for an interactive discussion on the latest advances in modeling, simulation, analysis and control of power electronic devices, circuits and systems.

Accepted and presented papers will be published to IEEE Xplore.



Venue and dates

Please note that the tutorials on November 9th will be held at the Department of Energy Technology, Pontoppidanstræde 111, room 1.177, 9220 Aalborg Ø, Denmark.
