Welcome to New Zealand North Section  PES/PELS Chapter

About PES

The Power & Energy Society (PES) provides the world’s largest forum for sharing the latest in technological developments in the electric power industry, for developing standards that guide the development and construction of equipment and systems, and for educating members of the industry and the general public. Members of the Power & Energy Society are leaders in this field, and they — and their employers — derive substantial benefits from involvement with this unique and outstanding association.

The Mission of PES is:

To be the leading provider of scientific and engineering information on electric power and energy for the betterment of society, and the preferred professional development source for our members.

PES’ Field of Interest is:

The scope of the Society embraces research, development, planning, design, construction, maintenance, installation and operation of  equipment, structures, materials and power systems for the safe, sustainable, economic and reliable conversion, generation, transmission, distribution, storage and usage of electric energy, including its measurement and control.

About PELS

 

The Power Electronics Society is one of the fastest growing technical societies of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).  For over 20 years, PELS has facilitated and guided the development and innovation in power electronics technology. This technology encompasses the effective use of electronic components, the application of circuit theory and design techniques, and the development of analytical tools toward efficient conversion, control and condition of electric power. Our 7,000 members include preeminent researchers, practitioners, and distinguished award winners.  IEEE PELS Publishes the IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics, a top referenced journal among all IEEE publications.

 The Power Electronics Society is dedicated to:

  • Upholding the vital scientific and educational aspects of power electronics and its applications.
  • Keeping its members around the globe up to date on state-of-the-art technological developments and advances in power electronics research.

In striving to build knowledge and awareness of the latest technologies and other advances in power electronics, the Power Electronics Society’s goal is to keep members current and competitive in the workplace, and provide them with the tools necessary to help them grow both personally and professionally.  We invite you to join us, and benefit from a world of invaluable information and support.

 

Mission Statement

 

The objectives of the Power Electronics Society shall be scientific, literary, and educational in character.  The society shall advance the theory and practice of electrical and electronics engineering and of the allied arts and sciences and it shall promote a high level of technical excellence among its members.  PELS shall aid in promoting close cooperation and exchange of technical information among its members and affiliates, and to this end shall hold meetings for the presentation of papers and their discussion, shall sponsor periodicals and special publications, and through its committees shall study and provide the needs of its members and affiliates.

Field of Interest
