At this event, the IEEE Hungary Section Excellence Award 2015 was granted to Peter Magyar, IAS Chapters and Membership Department Chair.
Call for Papers-IEEE Transactions on Industry Applications
The IEEE Transactions on Industry Applications has scheduled a special issue on fault diagnosis of electric machines, power electronics and drives. This Special Issue aims to offer an insight into the state-of-the-art of diagnostics and condition monitoring of electrical machines, power electronics, adjustable speed drives and related areas. The fault diagnostics of electrical machines and drives has been the object of a significant amount of research work during the last few decades. Reducing maintenance costs and preventing unscheduled downtimes, which cause production and economic losses, are a priority for manufacturers and operators. Correct diagnosis and early detection of incipient faults lead to reduce maintenance costs and downtime for the process under consideration, and in many cases also prevent harmful and sometimes disruptive failures.
Guest Editor: Prof. Antonio J. Marques Cardoso, University of Beira Interior, Portugal
Submission of one-page abstract: 15 May 2016
Submission of manuscripts for review in S1M: 1 July 2016
Final Decision: 15 February 2017
Submission of final files for approved papers: 15 March 2017
