The role of high-power converters in efficient and stable smart grids

In the new podcast episode of "Sound On. Power On.", Prof. Dr.-Ing. Marco Liserre, Kiel University, and host David Hegarty talk about how modular topologies can be tweaked to boost efficiency and reduce the losses associated with passive components.

Stages and product presentations

Knowledge transfer and product presentations at four exhibition stages

The top-class and varied program of the four exhibition stages is one of the highlights of the PCIM Europe. Whether it's the latest trends, product information, or key insights into E-Mobility and Energy Storage as well as Smart Power System Integration – there’s something that will interest every participant.

The stage program of the PCIM Europe 2024 will be available here from spring 2024. For your reference, please find following the stage program of the PCIM Europe 2023.

Technology Stage

The Technology Stage, previously Industry Stage, is an exclusive platform for scientific presentations and panel discussions by experts on research and development topics in the field of power electronics. The program includes the following current trend and future topics:

  • Wide Bandgap Devices and Applications
  • Reliability in Power Electronics
  • Power Electronics for the Energy Transition
  • Passive Components

As a visitor of the Technology Stage, you benefit from easy access to expert knowledge and direct exchange opportunities with industry experts on current issues and solution approaches.

Exhibitor Stage

At the Exhibitor Stage, you have the opportunity to find out about the latest product innovations from exhibiting companies along the entire value chain.

E-Mobility & Energy Storage Stage

The E-Mobility & Energy Storage Stage discusses the entire value chain around the topic of electromobility and energy storage in specialized presentations.

Here, new developments and challenges in power electronics for different applications (electric, hybrid and fuel cell vehicles, charging infrastructure, payment systems, etc.) will be considered.

Smart Power System Integration Stage 

Power electronics sets specific requirements on materials, components, and manufacturing processes, such as circuit carriers, temperature resistance and, in particular, assembly and interconnection technologies. At the same time, it is important to continuously make production more efficient and capable. At the Smart Power System Integration Stage, leading companies will present their innovative solutions and application examples for these current and future challenges in power electronics production.

The focus will be on new developments for applications in areas such as automotive, railway and server technology.
