IEEE and IEE Team on Vehicle Power and Propulsion Conference

The upcoming IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) Vehicle Power and Propulsion Conference (VPPC 2006) is, for the first time, being co-sponsored by the UK’s IEE (Institution of Electrical Engineers) and will be held in Windsor, England in September.

The three-day conference is also co-sponsored by the IEEE Power Electronics Society and IEEE Vehicular Technology Society.

The call for papers is still open. Conference tracks at the event will include:

  • Vehicular Electric Power Systems and Loads. Power system architectures, power management and distribution, 42V PowerNet, higher voltage power systems, military vehicular power systems and loads, harmonics and power quality, conventional vehicle electrical loads, advanced vehicle electrical loads, drive-by-wire, brake-by-wire, X-by-wire, electric power steering, active suspension, automatic cruise controls, engine electrical controls, remote sensing and fault tolerance, wireless sensors and controls.

  • Vehicular Power Electronics and Motor Drives. Converters, rectifiers, inverters, power electronic systems, electric machines, motor drives, motion control, applications in land, air, space, sea, and undersea vehicles, power semiconductors, EMI/EMC, starters, generators, integrated starter/alternators, novel power modules, auxiliary motor drives, drive trains.

  • Advanced Vehicles.
