Answering your Questions about Power Design  

What’s ECCE?
ECCE is the foremost IEEE conference in the field of electrical and electromechanical energy conversion. It provides researchers, engineers and professionals from industry and academia with a convivial and innovative atmosphere for interaction and networking.

What can visitors do at ECCE?
Participate in a variety of technical sessions addressing various topics in power electronics and machine design, learn about new R&D and speak with experts in these areas, seek answers to technical challenges in their work.

What’s different about ECCE?
The combined focus on both power electronics and machines means that the conference addresses integrated energy systems more comprehensively. The conference also emphasizes higher power applications , above 1 kW, in critical areas such as automotive, industrial drives, renewable energy and other grid-connected applications. Want a deeper look at the topics discussed at ECCE? See the ECCE 2019 Program

Who participates in ECCE?
Engineers representing a range of industries, national laboratories, and other organizations plus instructors, researchers and students. See the list of past attendees (PDF)

Who exhibits in ECCE’s expo?
In general, the exhibit has traditionally showcased the offerings of power electronics and machine component vendors and design tools (with particular strength in the tools area.) It has also had strong participation from large OEM companies in the energy and automotive industries, plus select universities and organizations. See the list of past exhibitors (PDF)

Who sponsors ECCE?
The IEEE’s Power Electronics Society (PELS) and the Industrial Applications Society (IAS). ECCE 2019’s corporate sponsors were Power Secure and Altair.

What does it cost to attend ECCE?
Registration rates for the conference vary depending on whether you are a member of a sponsoring IEEE society, an IEEE member, IEEE Life Member, or nonmember. Similarly, there are different fees for the ECCE tutorials; options for single-day registration, options for joint registration with the IAS meeting and guest tickets to selected events. If you just want to attend the expo, it is free on Tuesday, Oct. 1 from 2 - 5:30 pm. See 2019 conference rates.

Fun facts about ECCE:

  • Attendance has grown from about 700 attendees at the first ECCE in San Jose in 2009 to over 1800 attendees at ECCE 2019 in Baltimore, MD. (Editor’s note: Despite the growth, I find the conference maintains a very friendly atmosphere.)

Another Successful ECCE
The recently concluded IEEE Energy Conversion Congress & Expo (ECCE 2019), drew 1829 registered attendees to the Baltimore Convention Center, September 29-October 3. Participants from academia, industry and research institutions enjoyed an extensive program consisting of 18 tutorials, 18 special sessions and 1069 technical papers spread across 153 oral sessions and 20 poster sessions plus five plenary session talks. Attendees also toured a busy exhibition with the latest design tools, instruments and other products for power electronics and machine design, and viewed demos from top universities in these fields.

ECCE 2019 Expo Will Showcase The Latest Tools For Developers Of Power Electronics, Motor Systems And Their Applications
The ECCE 2019 Expo will be held at the Baltimore Convention Center on Monday Sept. 30 from 4:00 to 7:30 pm and on Tuesday, Oct. 1 from 11:00 am to 5:30 pm. Admission to the expo is free on Tuesday after 2:00 pm.

ECCE 2019 Plenary Explores Power Electronics On The Grid, 99% Power Efficiency And More The plenary at this year’s ECCE will shine a light on developments in power electronics applications on the grid, in motor drives and in military systems. It will also present innovative ideas on co-design of power circuits and thermal management and the pursuit of ultra-high efficiency and power density.

What participants say about ECCE

I do machines and electromagnetics and I interact with people in the drives world. But it’s really nice to walk into a conference where I can go to a session on smart grids or on devices. I will learn something about a new topic and maybe it’ll spark some ideas. This is the only conference where I feel I can get a broad spectrum of topics.”—Peter Wung

I’ve talked with some of my colleagues that are academics and they still feel it’s one of the best technical conferences in the field of power electronics and emerging technology.” -- Michael Harke
