Click Here to register The event is co-sponsored by IEEE SCV Magnetics Chapter, EMC Chapter, And Power Electronics Chapter Abstract Energy sustainability is arguably one of the most critical challenges for a sustainable future. With predictions showing future scarcity and/or higher degree of extraction difficulty of traditional sources of energy for example coal, oil and natural gas, the shift to sustainable clean sources of energy is a must. Another key reason is the increasing detrimental impact of using fossil fuels.…
