PELSS Power Electronics Student Summit

The Power Electronics Student Summit is a specialist conference in the field of power electronics - organized by Hochschule Bonn-Rhein-Sieg (H-BRS) in cooperation with the Fraunhofer IEE. The conference enables students to gain initial experience in the preparation, publication and discussion of their own research work in front of a specialist audience.

The next conference will take place in Kassel from August 21 to 23, 2024, organized by H-BRS and Fraunhofer IEE. Participation is open to doctoral candidates and enrolled students from all universities. Accepted papers will be published in the IEEE Xplore research database. The conference will be held in English. Papers from 2022 can be viewed here: Power and Energy Student Summit


The PELSS is intended as a platform for young scientists. Therefore, we encourage young professionals and PhD students pursuing their Master's or Ph.D. degree to submit their scientific papers. All submitted papers will be reviewed by an expert committee and considered for presentation at the conference.
In addition, prizes will be awarded to participants for the best paper and presentation.

Information on the 2022 conference at the University of Kassel can be found here.
