2018 IEEE 18th International Power Electronics and Motion Control Conference (PEMC)

Promote and co-ordinate the exchange and the publication of technical, scientific and economic information in the field of Power Electronics and Motion Control with special focus on countries less involved in IEEE related activities. 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 purpose of the 16th International Power Electronics and Motion Control Conference and Exposition (PEMC) is to bring together researchers, engineers and practitioners from all over the world, interested in the advances of power systems, power electronics, energy, electrical drives and education. 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.

2018 International Symposium on Power Electronics, Electrical Drives, Automation and Motion (SPEEDAM)

Power electronics and electric drives are more and more permeating industrial applications and their automation, systems for distributed electric generation, propulsion systems for road, railways, marine and other kinds of vehicles, on-board apparatuses for main or ancillary services, energy storage systems, robotics, household appliances and so on. Integration of technologies and smarter components and systems are some of the most relevant trends of the last years. Since long time the above mentioned topics have been the central themes of SPEEDAM Symposia, started in early ‘70s. We are pleased to note that the arguments are still very relevant and worldwide studied, also because in most of these application fields the market is still expanding. This justifies the effort in organizing our SPEEDAM international conference every two years, trying to focus attention to the emerging topics and to renew the traditional ones.

Thrust characteristic of spiral motor using fem analysis and compensation for thrust fluctuation

Hyuk-jin Kwon; Y. Fujimoto 9th IEEE International Workshop on Advanced Motion Control, 2006., 2006

We propose a six-phase spiral type motor that had higher thrust characteristics than linear motor's. This motor generates torque around it's axis and thrust in the axial direction only by electromagnetic force. Because no additional hardware is required for straight-line movement, this type of motors has less friction. Simulation results based on finite-element method (FEM) analysis certifies that this type ...


Application of extended kalman filter in the detection of sorption problem in hybrid maglev system with controlled permanent magnet

Wang Qiang; Chen Hui-xing; Li Yun-gang 2009 ISECS International Colloquium on Computing, Communication, Control, and Management, 2009

The sorption problem is one of the crucial problems in the electromagnetic suspension vehicles, which could lead to fatal sequent. To detect the sorption trend, a methods of comparing the measured value of gap with the threshold of protection gap is introduced. Yet, the measured value of gap is influenced by sample noise and electromagnetic interference. In this paper, the ...

A numerical simulation on a pneumatic air table realized by micro-EDM

T. Hirata; O. T. Guenat; T. Akashi; M. -A. Gretillat; N. F. de Rooij Journal of Microelectromechanical Systems, 1999

This paper presents a numerical simulation of the flow field on a one- dimensional pneumatic actuator. Unlike conventional actuators, this model uses dynamic pressure instead of friction to drive a slider. The objective of this simulation is to find the detail of the flow field under the slider as well as the influence of its levitation on the horizontal transportation. ...

  • 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.
