PEMD specialises in bringing together hundreds of power electronics, machines and drives specialists from around the world to deliver the latest developments in the technologies and applications of electrical drives, machines and power electronic systems.

Where academic and industry meet to solve the biggest PEMD challenges from development to application.

You’ll see hundreds of papers from around the world offering a truly unique chance to access worldwide developments and make new connections that could help propel your work/research projects.

Due to withdrawals, we have space for a limited number of submitted papers, which will be reviewed by volunteers from the committee and review panel. If you wish to submit, please submit the finished version to pemd@theiet.org by the 27th September.

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) update

In light of the escalating spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) around the world, and after careful consideration the IET has taken the decision to postpone PEMD until December this year. We feel this is the most responsible course of action.

People’s health and wellbeing is our number one priority. We are acutely aware that our visitors and supporters are the very people whose skills and experience will play a part in keeping the vital infrastructure and services running in these difficult times and we want to minimise the risk to people’s health. We also feel a responsibility to do everything we can to help slow the spread of the virus.

Please bear with us in the interim as we determine the exact logistics in this unprecedented scenario.

We thank you for your patience and understanding.

On behalf of the Conference Technical Committee, it is my great pleasure to invite you to the 10th international conference on Power Electronics, Machines and Drives (PEMD 2020) which will be held in Nottingham, UK, in April 2020.

The PEMD conference has always been of great importance to me, from presenting my earliest work as a PhD student many years ago, to serving as a theme leader with the technical committee for the last two conferences. I have now been given the honour of chairing the PEMD conference in 2020, and I am keen to welcome you all to my home city of Nottingham.....
