Comprehensive concurrent programme at PCIM Asia presents latest innovations and future trends in power electronics

6 Jun 2019

In addition to being a wide-ranging trading platform, PCIM Asia also offers exclusive opportunities for fairgoers to exchange professional insights and discover different market perspectives through its concurrent programme. A series of forums and seminars will spark innovative outcomes to meet the needs of the power electronics industry.

PCIM Asia is an international exhibition and conference for power electronics, intelligent motion technology, renewable energy and energy management. The fair will be held from 26 – 28 June at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition Center to showcase the latest offerings in the power electronics industry.

One of the main goals of PCIM Asia is to facilitate the communication within the power electronics industry. Besides the PCIM Asia Conference, the well-received Power Electronics Applied Technologies Forum and the E-mobility Forum will both return for the 2019 edition to facilitate this goal. The former will highlight the latest R&D products and solutions in China's power electronics market, while the latter will focus on applications of SiC MOSFETs, SiC materials, power modules and capacitors in electric transportation.

A number of well-known industry leaders have already confirmed their participation in these events. They include AkzoNobel, BASiC, Bronze, BYD, Danfoss, Eagtop, Firstack, Fuji, Harting, Heraeus, Hitachi Metal, Infineon, Isabellenhuette, MacDermid Alpha, Mitsubishi, Muze, OMICRON, Power Integrations, ROHM, SABIC, SANRISE, SEMIKRON, Tektronix, Toshiba, Vacuumschmelze, WEVO-CHEMIE and many more.

Moreover, PCIM Asia and Electric Age, a renowned national publication, will co-organise the 2019 Power Quality Advanced Technology Forum, with the support of the Machinery Industry Information Research Institute, on the second day of the fair. ‘Quality, Reliability, and Efficiency’ will be the theme of the forum, aiming to enhance the development of the control, detection and technologies of power quality. Chief engineers form various R&D institutes and university professors will form a strong line-up of speakers, and examine the power quality issues of smart grids and renewable energy grids.

Another noteworthy event will be the first edition of The University Seminar, scheduled for the third day of the show. Topics of the seminar will include ‘Intelligent Motion’ and ‘Packaging Integration and Application of Advanced Power Semiconductor Devices’, which will be led by professors from the Shanghai University and the Xi’an Jiaotong University, together with a number of industry experts to share their latest insights on the technological development of different power electronics fields.
