INTELEC® has an extensive thirty three (33) year history in the field of power and energy in the communications industry (see VENUES) and is a unique source of technical information. It is an annual conference which examines and analyzes the latest developments in communications energy systems and related power processing devices and circuits. Technical papers provide results of research and new developments in power electronics and communications power systems. Topics include DC power plants, powering architectures, AC systems, DC-DC converters, batteries, grounding, physical and thermal design, alternative power, such as solar, wind, fuel cells, turbine and diesel engine generators, and building and equipment cooling systems.
Tutorials are included in the technical program as well as a comprehensive exhibition of products and equipment. The IEEE Power Electronics Society (PELS) is the sole sponsor of INTELEC when it is held in North America and provides technical support when the conference is held outside North America.
