IEEE Vancouver Power Electronics Chapter

The Vancouver Section of IEEE was originally established as a Section of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers (AIEE) in 1911, and is the second oldest Section in Canada. It is one of the largest Sections of the country, and currently has about 2200 active members, including over 300 students at UBC, BCIT and SFU. It serves the geographical region of British Columbia, with the exception of the Vancouver Island, which is served by the Victoria Section. In order to engage the local engineering community, the Section organizes tours and events, and hosts technical presentations and seminars on topics of current interest to professionals of the field. The 34 IEEE technical societies are represented by 15 technical Chapters, among which stands the Vancouver Power Electronics Chapter.

In 2016, Dr. Martin Ordonez was elected the new chair of the IEEE Vancouver Power Electronics Chapter, alongside the vice-chairs Hamed Valipour and Francisco Paz. Ever since, the Chapter has organized several events in the power electronics area, including academic lectures, industrial tutorials, an international conference and an industry/academia series. Invited speakers from different countries have been welcomed to Vancouver to share their expertise in power electronics and renewable energy systems. In addition, the Chapter has hosted the seventh International Symposium on Power Electronics for Distributed Generation Systems (PEDG), bringing together 180 experts in power electronics to present the latest advancements in distributed generation. In recognition of the results obtained by the new Chapter leadership, the Small Technical Chapter Award was granted by the IEEE Vancouver Section at the 2017 IEEE Vancouver Annual General Meeting.
