Call for Papers

The IEEE Power Electronics Society announces the Fifteenth IEEE Workshop on Control and Modeling for Power Electronics, COMPEL 2014. This Workshop brings together industrial, government, and academic researchers for interactive discussion on the latest advances in modeling, analysis, and control of power electronic devices, circuits, and systems. Special emphasis at COMPEL 2014 will be on emerging applications of industrial interest.

Selected papers will be recommended for a Special Issue of the IEEE Journal of Emerging and Selected Topics in Power Electronics.

Workshop Topics:

The COMPEL 2014 Technical Committee will consider all submissions relevant to the areas of interests of the Workshop. Topics suitable for the Workshop include (but are not limited to):

Modeling & Simulation: Devices, circuits, and systems; multi-domain and multilevel modeling; model fidelity & compatibility; electro-thermal, EMI, reliability prediction, failure mechanisms.

Control of Power Electronics: Advances in smart power control and power management techniques; control algorithms, design methods, implementation techniques (DSP, microcontroller, FPGA, hardware-in-loop, custom ICs).

System Power Management: Analysis, modeling and control of power electronics in energy efficiency and renewable energy systems: energy harvesting, processors, lighting, data centers, hybrid/electric vehicles, micro grids, renewable sources.

Design & Simulation Tools: Synthesis, visualization, and verification tools; monitoring, built-in test, diagnosis, adaptation, virtual prototyping.

Education: Virtual laboratories, multimedia tools, interactive simulation, symbolic analysis tools.

Preparation of Submissions:

Prospective authors should submit a cover page and a separate digest not exceeding five double-spaced pages for the intended
submission in PDF format. The cover page should include the paper title, topic of interest, author’s name, affiliations, complete mailing addresses, telephone and fax numbers, e-mail addresses of the corresponding author, and a 100-word abstract. The digest should not identify any authors. Digest on-line submission and other Workshop details are posted on the website:


The COMPEL 2014 will be held in the College of Industrial and Telecommunications Engineering of the University of Cantabria,
Santander, Spain. The meeting place belongs to the “Las Llamas” campus, which is easy to access from all places in Santander.
