Welcome to PELS Malaysia

Chapters offer the opportunity for PELS members in local areas to network with colleagues, develop activities for professional development, and share expertise through technical exchange. The Power Electronic Society has over 50 chapters, national and international, professional and student.

For those with leadership ability and skills, local Chapters provide opportunities to practice, build, demonstrate, and develop their skills. Chairs and other executives are always in demand in both the local Chapter and the Section. Thereafter, opportunities may expand and move on through Regional Activities to higher levels of management, or via the international route to the Technical Committees. Skills learned and used at the Chapter level are the same as those used in business. Also, the environment within the local Chapter is friendlier than that of most businesses–since IEEE is seeking to serve the particular needs of local members.

In support of regular chapters and chapters under creation, the IEEE Power Electronics Society offers the Distinguished Lecturers Program in which worldwide recognized experts in the field can visit your chapter/section in order to give talks which help you to promote Power Electronics in your country. Distinguished Lecturers are invited to regional chapters to lead discussions on the latest research results and their practical applications related to the analysis, computer aided design and practical implementation of circuits, and the application of circuit theoretic techniques to systems and signal processing.

To promote technical activities within PELS chapters, in 2000 the Power Electronics Society instituted a Best Chapter Award. The award is given annually to the chapter that makes the best use of the PELS supporting capabilities and conducts activities such as organizing conferences and technical talks, operating a web site, and promoting Power Electronics technology.
