PELS at the organizational level has published a series of lectures to their website; we hope you find this content useful.


The IEEE PELS Digital Media and Education Committee needs volunteers to review power-related educational videos. We need graduate students, industry members, and faculty. All it takes is about an hour of your time to review a single video. To volunteer, please email your name, occupation, email, and area of focus (controls, devices, converters, etc.) to Kristen Booth at KB72@mailbox.sc.edu. We have over 100 hours of video to review and need lots of volunteers.
