Special Issue: Emerging Topics in Lighting, 2018
IEEE Journal of Emerging and Selected Topics in Power Electronics (JESTPE)
Scheduled Publication Date: September 2018
The drive for more efficient and smarter ways to use electrical energy is increasingly prevalent. Lighting, as the most common and naturally the most constant form of load, constitutes a significant portion of the total electricity consumption in all buildings. Therefore, it has a high energy-saving potential to optimize the lighting system, including both the lighting sources and their supply, towards better efficiency.
Currently, LED lamps are replacing traditional incandescent lamps due to advantages in efficiency, life span and fast response. With the development of LED packing and coating technology, the cost of the LEDs will be further decreased and they will be more widely used in different applications. Besides, discharge lamps, like fluorescent lamps, metal halide lamps and sodium vapor lamps are still being used in many applications owing to their several advantages. Both the LEDs and the discharge lamps require a current-regulating driving circuit, which is a critical factor influencing the efficiency of the lighting system and still calls for improvements.
Special Issue: Grid-Connected Power Electronics Systems: Stability, Power Quality, and Protection
IEEE Transactions on Industry Applications
Call for Papers Deadline: 15 October 2017
Grid-connected power electronics systems have been increasingly found in Renewable Energy Sources (RESs), High-Voltage Direct-Current (HVDC) systems, Flexible Alternating Current Transmission Systems (FACTSs), Variable-Speed Drives (VSDs), and other emerging energy-efficient applicants. The widespread adoption of power electronic apparatus in electrical grids brings more flexibility in power control and management, but encounters also a series of unprecedented challenges. The multitime-scale control dynamics of power electronics systems tend to induce oscillations or resonances across a wide frequency range. The limited over-current capability and the reduced rotational inertia of power converters are further deteriorating the system protection and transient stability. Numerous research efforts have thus been made towards these challenges, ranging from hardware concepts to converter/system modeling and control strategies.
This special issue is devoted to identifying the technical barriers and the latest progress in the utility applications of power electronics systems. Prospective authors are invited to submit innovative approaches, survey papers or tutorials, for review for publication in this special issue.
