7. ETG Fachtagung Bauelemente der Leistungselektronik und ihre
Anwendungen (in German language only)

06 - 07 April 2017
Bad Nauheim / Germany

Diese traditionell in Bad Nauheim stattfindende Fachtagung gibt einen Überblick über die seit der einige Jahre zurückliegenden vorigen Tagung erreichten Fortschritte auf dem Gebiet der Leistungselektronik, und einen Ausblick auf kommende Innovationen.

Das Interesse gilt hierbei einerseits den Leistungshalbleiter-Bauelementen: Silizium-Bauelemente und Silizium-Karbid-Schottky-Dioden konnten in den vergangenen Jahren weiter optimiert werden.  Außerdem sind mittlerweile Silizium-Karbid-Transistoren sowie Leistungshalbleiter auf der Basis von Gallium-Nitrid verfügbar. Solche schnell schaltenden Halbleiter stellen hohe Anforderungen u. a. an die Aufbau- und Verbindungstechnik, welcher zusätzlich unter Aspekten wie Zuverlässigkeit, Integrationsgrad und Kosten große Bedeutung zukommt. Zu einer leistungselektronischen Schaltung gehören neben den Leistungshalbleitern außerdem passive Bauelemente. Die Vorträge am ersten Tag befassen sich entsprechend mit Bauelement-bezogenen Themen.

Am zweiten Tag stehen die Anwendungen der Leistungselektronik im Vordergrund: Maßgebliche neue Entwicklungen zeichnen sich bei den elektrischen Netzen ab, bei denen nicht nur durch die Hochspannungs-Gleichstrom-Übertragung die Bedeutung der Gleichstromtechnik wächst, welche den Einsatz leistungselektronischer Stellglieder erfordert. Dies gilt auch für die Einspeisung aus erneuerbaren Quellen erzeugter elektrischer Energie ins Netz. Als weitere typische Anwendung für Stromrichter sind drehzahlvariable Antriebe bekannt, wie sie z. B. in Windgeneratoren, Industrieantrieben oder der Elektrotraktion bei der Bahn bzw. elektrisch angetriebenen Straßenfahrzeugen zum Einsatz kommen.

Symposium Programme


APE - Automotive Power Electronics

26 - 27 April 2017
Paris / France

The last event was very successful with an important number of participants, in particular of course from France, but also from other European countries and from our APE colleagues from Japan. The speakers were top level from across the industry.

Technical presentations in combination with round table discussions allowed profound technical presentations as well as comments and reactions to very actual issues.

Coming from this experience, we want to continue with APE 2017 in the same way and focus in seven sessions on invited papers. The program committee will contact candidates in the next weeks in order to construct an attractive program.

We will prepare a program with a mix of industry representatives from car manufacturers, first and second tier suppliers and research institutes from all over the world, in particular of course from France, Germany, Italy and Japan.

The level will be targeting top experts in the domain, who bring our common knowledge forward collectively and will allow to do effective networking for the creation and strengthening of technical and business relations.

Besides the presentation of the papers we expect also once again about 20 companies to expose their products and know-how in an exhibition accompanying APE.

ICDCM - IEEE International Conference on DC Microgrids

27 - 29 June 2017

Nuremberg / Germany

The Second ICDCM will be held in Germany, a hotbed of direct current (DC) power technology, following on the heels of a successful first conference in Atlanta, GA, USA in 2015. The conference aims to bring together industrial and researchers in the field of DC microgrids and related technologies to advance our understanding and capability for endpoint use of DC systems and technologies. Technical sessions will be arranged around focus areas – the use of DC systems with low voltages (up to 1500 VDC) in kW power scale e.g. in residential and commercial buildings and MW power scale in industrial applications as a part of private or public installations with up to several thousand Volts.

04 - 08 September 2017
Angers / France

The EMC Europe, the leading International Symposium on electromagnetic compatibility in Europe, continues the long tradition of independent regular international Symposia on EMC organized in Europe in: Wroclaw (20 editions since 1972) and Zurich (20 editions since 1973) as well as European Symposia organized in Rome (since 1994) and then in Brugge, Sorrento, Eindhoven, Barcelona and Hamburg. Those three symposia were running every second year.

Those International EMC conferences organized in Europe had been merged in 2010 into EMC Europe - the International Symposium and Exhibition on Electromagnetic Compatibility. EMC Europe is organized annually in one of a European city with EMC scientific center to provide an international forum for the exchange technical information on EMC.

The first joint EMC Europe was organized in Wroclaw in 2010. Next were held in York (2011), Rome (2012), Brugge (2013), Gottenburg (2014), Dresden (2015) and Wroclaw (2016). In 2017 EMC Europe will be organized for the first time in Angers.

EMC Europe become the biggest conference dedicated to EMC in Europe.
