The main taget is to create a forum for industrial and academic community.

  • 2016 IEEE International Power Electronics and Motion Control Conference (PEMC)

    The IEEE Power Electronics and Motion Control (IEEE-PEMC) conference continues to be the oldest in Europe and is a direct continuation of the conferences held since 1970. Its main goal is to promote and co-ordinate the exchange and publication of technical, scientific and economic information on Power Electronics and Motion Control. One of its main objectives is the cooperation and integration between the long-time divided Western and Eastern Europe, this goal expressed in the conference logo, as well. The conference attracts now a large number (roughly 500+) of participants from the world. An exhibition is organised in parallel with every PEMC Conference, offering space for the industry to present their latest products for Power Electronics and Motion Control. In addition to the regular oral sessions, key notes, round tables, tutorials, workshops, seminars, exhibitions, the dialogue sessions (enlarged “poster” presentations) present to the speakers a better cooperation opportunity.

  • 2014 16th International Power Electronics and Motion Control Conference (PEMC)

The PEMC seeks to promote and disseminate knowledge of the various topics and technologies of power engineering, energy and electrical drives. The PEMC aims to present the important results to the international community of power engineering, energy, electrical drives fields and education in the form of research, development, applications, design and technology. It is therefore aimed at assisting researchers, scientists, manufacturers, companies, communities, agencies, associations and societies to keep abreast of new developments in their specialist fields and to unite in finding power engineering issues.

An electric suspension that can be used as a bearing to reduce friction in micromotors was studied. Experimental evidence indicates that suspension stabilization can be achieved without the need for position sensors. The experimental investigation revealed some problems that need to be addressed before the electric suspension can be successfully adapted for use in micromotors. However, the potential benefits of ...

  • Domestic and Industrial Applications

    A group of physicists in Spain has reportedly created a magnetic “wormhole” in the laboratory “that is capable of transporting a magnetic field from one point in space to another". At the 83rd Geneva International Motor Show in Switzerland, Volvo unveiled a bicyclist detection system, which should soon be available on many of its models. An enhanced version of the pedestrian detection system, which Volvo launched in 2010, it uses a radar in the car's grille as well as a camera located behind the windshield. Moving beyond material science, some European and Japanese researchers are exploring electric motor designs that do away with permanent magnets altogether. One such design is a switched reluctance motor. The “local warming” project can be coupled with a smart‐phone‐based app so that each person can get the light‐emitting diodes (LEDs) targeted at him to deliver the desired level of heat.

  • Magnetic Actuators Operated by DC

    Magnetic actuators use magnetic fields to transform electrical energy into mechanical energy. Thus they are a type of transducer. This chapter discusses in detail the most common types of magnetic actuators operated by direct current (DC). The magnetic actuators discussed in the chapter are: solenoid actuators, voice coil actuators, other linear actuators using coils and permanent magnets, proportional actuators, rotary actuators, magnetic bearings and couplings, and magnetic separators.
