Professional Education Seminars Kick Off APEC 2023

The APEC 2023 Professional Education Seminars program is finalized. The seminars deliver in-depth discussions on complex power electronics topics and will be held Sunday and Monday, March 19-20, before the exhibition opens. Covering topics like power system design to the latest components applications, each seminar is three-and-a-half hours long with a 30-minute break.

There are six topic tracks, running in parallel, scheduled for three session times: Sunday 19th morning (9:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.), Sunday 19th afternoon (2:30 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.), and Monday 20th morning (8:30 a.m. – noon). Highlights include (but are not limited to):

  • “Switch Mode Power Concepts,” – Presenter Robert White
  • “Gate-Drive Circuit Design for Wide-Bandgap Power Transistors” – Presenter Eric Persson
  • “Modeling, Measurement and Suppression of Conductive, Near-Field and Radiated Electromagnetic Interference in Power Electronics Systems,” – Presenter Shuo Wang
  • “The Essence of Solid-State Transformers,” – Presenters Johann W. Kolar and Jonas Huber
  • “Is SiC High Performance Technology Reliable Enough For Your Application?” – Presenters Xuning Zhang and Cesare Bocchiola

Given that the seminars run concurrently, all workshops will be available for download for seminar attendees. Each will provide a printed color copy of the presentation for following along and taking notes. Click here for the full seminar program.
