About 400 companies are expected to exhibit at this year’s PCIM Europe in Nuremberg (20 – 22 May), reflecting the growing importance of the world’s leading meeting point for the power electronics sector. In three halls and over an area of approximately 20,000 square meters, the key companies in the sector will showcase their products and services to an international trade audience. The additional exhibition hall together with improved visitor flow will provide visitors with a concentrated overview of the market.
Highlights for trade visitors
Highly qualified presentations, expert discussions, project presentations and market overviews will be delivered by trade associations, the trade press and companies at the Industry Forum in hall 6. The Exhibitor Forum in hall 9 will also offer more than 50 vendor presentations from exhibiting companies on their latest developments and innovations.
Comprehensive conference program
With more than 240 presentations on new technological trends in power electronics components and systems, the conference program offers a comprehensive overview of the latest power electronics topics.
A highlight at the beginning of each of the three days of the conference are the three keynote speeches “Progress in Power Semiconductor Devices and Applications” delivered by Dan Kinzer of Fairchild Semiconductors, “Ultra High Voltage SiC Power Devices and Its Impact on Future Power Delivery System” by Alex Huang of NSF FREEDM Systems Center and “E-Mobility 2020: Power Electronics, a Key Technology for the Effective Deployment of Electric Vehicles in a Low Carbon Society” by Enrique J. Dede of ETSE University Valencia.
Seminars and tutorials delivered by experts
On the two days before the conference gets underway, internationally renowned experts will share their knowledge on the principles and specific topics of power electronics in six half day seminars and 10 full day tutorials. For the first time, the program will include the tutorial “Power Electronics and Control for Grid Integration of Renewable Energies and Energy Storage Systems”. This tutorial serves the growing demand for training in power electronics and solutions for renewable energies.
