PEDG 2018 was a great success with inspiring speakers who shared their innovative thoughts and research on distributed energy. See below a video of highlights from the conference.

We hope you will join us next year at the 10th PEDG in Xi'an, China on June 3-6, 2019!


Welcome to PEDG 2018, Charlotte

Home to some of the largest and most diverse energy-related companies, and more than 30,000 energy industry professionals, Charlotte has been dubbed the "New Energy Capital" of North America. It will also be the destination for the 9th International Symposium on Power Electronics for Distributed Generation Systems (PEDG 2018).

Hosted by UNC Charlotte's Energy Production and Infrastructure Center (EPIC), the symposium, sponsored by IEEE Power Electronics Society and organized by the PELS Technical Committee on Sustainable Energy Systems will provide a venue for power electronics experts to present the results of their cutting-edge research and learn what is in store for the future of the electric power grid. PEDG 2018 will feature keynote speeches, tutorials, and regular technical sessions on theory, analysis, design and development, testing, deployment and impact of power electronics for distributed generation, energy storage, and sustainable energy resources.

Publication and Awards

All papers presented at PEDG 2018 will appear on IEEE Xplore and will be listed in Ei Compendex. Three papers will be awarded "Best paper", as selected from the paper submissions.

Symposium Location

Located in the Piedmont region of Southeastern United States, Charlotte is the largest city in the state of North Carolina and has been among the fastest growing US cities for a number of years. The city, with its unique attractions, and proximity to the mountains and the beaches, is a well-connected transportation hub.
