SUMMARY | ECPE Network Meeting on 7th - 8th October 2021 in Munich

On the 7th and 8th of October 2021, the ECPE network meeting took place as a hybrid event in Munich, after more than two years since the last meeting in 2019. Interesting presentations on the future of power electronics in grid-related applications and the role of artificial intelligence on the first day, and hydrogen/fuel cell driven mobility and transport and its role in grid related applications on the second day, led to animated discussions amongst the participants.


The integration of renewable energies into the power grid and alternative drives beyond the standard gasoline combustion engine are main topics in the future of power electronics. Not only extraction, storage and usage of this energy is of importance, but also the processing. The transformation from one energy form into another needs to be as effective as possible. Ways to calculate differential power and synthesis of suitable effective, low-weight and low-volume power modules were presented and discussed. In the future, artificial intelligence will become more and more important when designing power electronic systems. The role of the designer will change from calculator to domain expert focusing on the definition and design of proper reward functions for the reinforcement learning.
