Special Session #9: Smart Condition Monitoring of Electrical Machines and Power Electronic Converters

Co-Organizer: Adil Usman, University of California Santa Cruz, USA
Co-Organizer: Dinesh Kumar, Global Research & Development Centre, Danfoss Drives A/S, Denmark

Call For Papers

The IEEE VPCC 2022 is looking forward to call and invite the researchers, scholars and scientist to contribute to the area of Vehicle Power and Propulsion (VPP). This Special Session, in VPPC 2022 is however willing to focus on the concept of All Electric Transportation (AET) where the research contributions in the form of short papers, digest and full papers are invited on the topic, “Smart Condition Monitoring of Electrical Machines and Power Electronic converters” Subtitle: Electrical machines/motors, Power Electronic converters deployed in electric transportation”.

The Special Session would be interested to have the practicing engineers, researchers and scientists to present their work in the conference venue through a submission of papers. Every submitted full length manuscript (minimum 4 -pages and maximum 8-pages) shall go through a peer-review process to have a fair decision on the submission. The authors of the accepted papers will be invited to present their work in IEEE VPPC 2022 through an official registration process.
