Track 01:Power Electronics

Power Electronics is the technology associated with efficient conversion, control and conditioning of electric power from its available input into the desired electrical output form
The power conversion systems can be classified according to the type of the input and output power.
Power Electronic Converters

  1. AC/DC Converters – Rectifiers
  2. DC/AC Converters – Inverters
  3. AC/AC Converters – Changers
  4. DC/DC Converters – Choppers

Power and Energy play a critical role in transforming the current electric grid into the next-generation grid.  PE enable utilities to deliver power to their customers effectively while providing increased reliability, security, and flexibility to the electric power system. While approximately 30% of all power generation utilize PE somewhere between the point of generation and its end use today, by 2030 it is expected that up to 80% of generated electricity will utilize PE [Power Electronics for Distributed Energy Systems and Transmission and Distribution Applications]. Increased PE integration into the electric grid provides: (1) Increased grid reliability; (2) Compelling cost savings; and (3) Large environmental benefits and energy savings. Furthermore, power grid conference will enable increased productivity, complement increased renewables-to-grid integration, and empower consumers in the residential, industrial and commercial sectors
Power Electronics Market to Rise 77% to $23 Billion for Discrete Components in 2024 Silicon-based devices will remain the main technology of choice, but silicon carbide (SiC) and gallium nitride (GaN) will be the fastest-growing, gaining a combined 13% share in 2024.
“As power demands in applications from consumer electronics to the power grid get more demanding, silicon is running up against physical limits, offering opportunities for both SiC and GaN,”

Track 02:Machines and Drives

An electrical machine and circuits  is the apparatus that converts energy in three categories: generators which convert mechanical energy to electrical energy, motors which convert electrical energy to mechanical energy, and transformers which changes the voltage level of an alternating current

The electric machine is an electromechanical energy conversion device that processes and delivers power to the load. The same electric machine can operate as a motor to convert electrical power to mechanical power or operate as a generator to convert mechanical power to electrical power. The electric machine in conjunction with the power electronic converter and the associated controller makes the motor drive. The power electronic converter is made of solid state devices and handles the flow of bulk power from the source to the motor input terminals. The advances in the power semiconductor technology over the past several decades enabled the development of compact, efficient and reliable DC and AC electric motor drives.

Research in the area of electric machines and drives is focused on design optimization using 2D and 3D finite element analysis, and drives design at the systems level considering operating requirements and control opportunities. The research is multifaceted seeking innovations in machine configurations, motor control concepts, parameter identifications, and noise and vibration analysis. Motor drives are designed to make the system more efficient, fault tolerant, smoother in operation, smaller and matched to the applications. Modeling and design tools are developed to aid the machine design and drive development efforts. Particular research emphasis is on permanent magnet and reluctance type machines and drives.

Track 03:Power Systems

Electric Power System is a network of electrical components used to supply, transmit and use electric power. An example of an electric power system is the network that supplies a region's homes and industry with power—for sizable regions, this power system is known as the grid and can be broadly divided into the generators that supply the power, the transmission system that carries the power from the generating centers to the load centers and the distribution system that feeds the power to nearby homes and industries. Smaller power systems are also found in industry, hospitals, commercial buildings and homes. The majority of these systems rely upon three-phase AC power—the standard for large-scale power transmission and distribution across the modern world. Specialized power systems that do not always rely upon three-phase AC power are found in aircraft, electric rail systems, ocean liners and automobiles.
Power-system protection is a branch of electrical power engineering that deals with the protection of electrical power systems from faults through the isolation of faulted parts from the rest of the electrical network. The objective of a protection scheme is to keep the power system stable by isolating only the components that are under fault, whilst leaving as much of the network as possible still in operation. Thus, protection schemes must apply a very pragmatic and pessimistic approach to clearing system faults. The power system state estimator market will expand from an estimated $3 billion in 2014 to $5.87 billion by 2019 with a CAGR of 14.35% from 2014 to 2019.

Track 04:Smart Grid Technologies

Smart Grid is a modernized electrical grid that uses analog or digital information and communications technology to gather and act on information - such as information about the behaviors of suppliers and consumers - in an automated fashion to improve the efficiency, reliability, economics, and sustainability of the production and distribution of electricity. Electronic power conditioning and control of the production and distribution of electricity are important aspects of the smart grid. Smart Grid market to surpass $400 billion by 2020, growing with an average compound annual growth rate of over 8%. The new report examines the global smart grid market from the perspective of growth and market share of technologies and services, featuring a top-down and bottom-up financial forecast along with highlights of regional trends, analysis and opportunity across the world’s established and emerging smart grid markets.Smart Grid Markets Analyzed in the Report
Advance metering infrastructure, Smart grid data analytics, Network operations software, Transmission & automation, Smart distribution and cyber security 

Track 05:Renewable and Non Renewable Energy Sources

There are nine major areas of energy resources. They fall into two categories: nonrenewable and renewable. Nonrenewable energy resources, like coal, nuclear, oil, and natural gas, are available in limited supplies. This is usually due to the long time it takes for them to be replenished. Renewable resources are replenished naturally and over relatively short periods of time. The five major renewable energy resources are solar panel, wind, water (hydro), biomass, and geothermal. Fossil fuels make up a large portion of today’s energy market, although promising new renewable technologies are emerging.

The global renewable energy market is valued at $224 billion in 2010 and is expected to reach $331 billion by 2015, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.1%.
Hydroelectric power contributes a significant percentage of global electricity. This sector is worth an estimated $62 billion in 2010 and is projected to reach nearly $74 billion in 2015, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.5%.Solar energy will experience the most dramatic growth over the forecast period. This sector is valued at $44 billion in 2010 and should reach $97 billion by 2015, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 17%.

Track 06:European Energy Market

The energy sector is one of the pillars of growth, competitiveness and development in modern economies. To keep up with the permanent transformation of the energy sector in Europe need to have a continuous supply of accurate and up-to-date data.

Power generation costs and wholesale prices are primarily influenced on one hand by supply side drivers, such as the structure of the power generation mix, the amount of generated power compared to domestic needs or the availability of power imports and exports and other factors, for example carbon emission allowance prices. On the other hand, the demand side is affected by the electricity need of households (lighting and heating needs), and the industrial demand for electricity, primarily depending on the general performance of the economy. On the longer term both household and industrial electricity demand is also impacted by energy efficiency policies.

In those countries, where the contribution of hydro energy is significant in power generation (e.g.: Spain, Portugal, Sweden, Austria, Norway or Switzerland) the amount of precipitation significantly impacts the generation costs and the wholesale power price level. In most of these countries the 2013 average power prices were among the lowest in Europe. In countries like Germany, where the influence of solar and wind power generation rapidly increased during the last couple of years, abundant renewable supply assured one of the lowest average price in 2013 in the EU. German power generation trends have significantly impacted the price level in Central and Eastern Europe. Prices in this region also depend on the availability of electricity interconnections to neighboring countries and regions, such as the Balkans. Prices in Italy, Ireland the United Kingdom and the Netherlands were among the highest in the EU in 2013, either because of the lack of sufficient interconnection capacities to neighboring power markets (Italy and Ireland) or because of the dominance of expensive generation fuels in setting the marginal price in the wholesale market (natural gas in the case of the Netherlands and the UK). In the UK changes in the energy mix, i.e. related to significant coal fired generation capacities taken offline in 2013 according to long standing plans, have created an upward pressure on domestic wholesale power prices in the short term, pending new capacity coming on-stream.

Track 07:Signal processing

Signal processing is an enabling technology that encompasses the fundamental theory, applications, algorithms, and implementations of processing or transferring information contained in many different physical, symbolic, or abstract formats broadly designated as signals. It uses mathematical, statistical, computational, heuristic, and linguistic representations, formalisms, and techniques for representation, modeling, analysis, synthesis, discovery, recovery, sensing, acquisition, extraction, learning, security, or forensics.

The global DSP market by revenue is estimated to grow from $6.20 billion in 2011 to $9.58 billion in 2016 at a CAGR of 9.09%. The percentage share of DSP industry in the global semiconductor revenue was approximately between 1% and 3% over the years, and it currently stands at 1.97% in 2011. The rising demand of DSPs in the wireless infrastructure sector is one of the most prominent reasons for its growth. Rising trend of several advanced performance technologies like DSP based SoCs is another reason accountable for significant growth potential in the DSP market.

Track 08:Microwave Technology

Microwaves are a form of electromagnetic radiation with wavelengths ranging from as long as one meter to as short as one millimeter; with frequencies between 300 MHz (100 cm) and 300 GHz (0.1 cm).This broad definition includes both UHF and EHF (millimeter waves), and various sources use different boundaries. In all cases, microwave includes the entire SHF band (3 to 30 GHz, or 10 to 1 cm) at minimum, with RF engineering often restricting the range between 1 and 100 GHz (300 and 3 mm).The prefix micro- in microwave is not meant to suggest a wavelength in the micrometer range. It indicates that microwaves are "small", compared to waves used in typical radio broadcasting, in that they have shorter wavelengths. The boundaries between far infrared, terahertz radiation, microwaves, and ultra-high-frequency radio waves are fairly arbitrary and are used variously between different fields of study. Beginning at about 40 GHz, the atmosphere becomes less transparent to microwaves, due at lower frequencies to absorption from water vapor and at higher frequencies from oxygen. A spectral band structure causes absorption peaks at specific frequencies (see graph at right). Above 100 GHz, the absorption of electromagnetic radiation by Earth's atmosphere is so great that it is in effect opaque, until the atmosphere becomes transparent again in the so-called infrared and optical window frequency ranges.
The global millimeter wave technology revenue market is expected to reach $208.12 million by the end of 2014 and is expected to grow to $1.9 billion in 2020 at a CAGR of 45.09%. Similarly, volumes are estimated to grow from 22.48 thousand units to close 700 thousand units in 2020. This growth is heralded by the growing telecom application market for millimeter wave technology, especially in the small cell backhaul field. The millimeter wave scanner market is also expected to grow rapidly in the coming five years.

Track 09:Telecommunication Systems

Telecommunication occurs when the exchange of information between two entities (communication) includes the use of technology. Communication technology uses channels to transmit information (as electrical signals), either over a physical medium (such as signal cables), or in the form of electromagnetic waves. The word is often used in its plural form, telecommunications, because it involves many different technologies. Early means of communicating over a distance included visual signals, such as beacons, smoke signals, semaphore telegraphs, signal flags, and optical heliographs. Other examples of pre-modern long-distance communication included audio messages such as coded drumbeats, lung-blown horns, and loud whistles. Modern technologies for long-distance communication usually involve electrical and electromagnetic technologies, such as telegraph, telephone, and teleprinter, networks, radio, microwave transmission, fiber optics, and communications satellites. Telecommunications is one of the prime support services needed for rapid growth and modernization of various sectors of the economy. Driven by strong adoption of data consumption on handheld devices, the total mobile services market revenue in India will reach US$ 29.8 billion in 2014 and is expected to touch US$ 37 billion in 2017, registering a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.2 per cent.

Track 10:Control System

A control system is a device, or set of devices, that manages, commands, directs or regulates the behavior of other devices or systems. Industrial control systems are used in industrial production for controlling equipment or machines. The main feature of control system is, there should be a clear mathematical relation between input and output of the system. When the relation between input and output of the system can be represented by a linear proportionality, the system is called linear control system. Again when the relation between input and output cannot be represented by single linear proportionality, rather the input and output are related by some non-linear relation, the system is referred as non-linear control system. Mechatronics is a multidisciplinary field of engineering that includes a combination of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, telecommunications engineering, control engineering and computer engineering. As technology advances the subfields of engineering multiply and adapt. Mechatronics' aim is a design process that unifies these subfields. Originally, mechatronics just included the combination of mechanics and electronics, hence the word is a combination of mechanics and electronics; however, as technical systems have become more and more complex the word has been broadened to include more technical areas.
The global riot control systems market size is estimated to be $3,784.36 million in 2014 and is expected to reach $5,150.00 million at a CAGR of 5.27% by 2020.

Track 11:Wireless communication

Wireless communication is the transfer of information between two or more points that are not connected by an electrical conductor. The most common wireless technologies use radio. With radio waves distances can be short, such as a few meters for television or as far as thousands or even millions of kilometers for deep-space radio communications. It encompasses various types of fixed, mobile, and portable applications, including two-way radios, cellular telephones, personal digital assistants (PDAs), and wireless networking. Other examples of applications of radio wireless technology include GPS units, garage door openers, wireless computer mice, keyboards and headsets, headphones, radio receivers, satellite television, broadcast television and cordless telephones. Wireless power transfer (WPT) or wireless energy transmission is the transmission of electrical power from a power source to a consuming device without using solid wires or conductors. It is a generic term that refers to a number of different power transmission technologies that use time-varying electromagnetic fields. Wireless transmission is useful to power electrical devices in cases where interconnecting wires are inconvenient, hazardous, or are not possible. In wireless power transfer, a transmitter device connected to a power source, such as the mains power line, transmits power by electromagnetic fields across an intervening space to one or more receiver devices, where it is converted back to electric power and utilized.

Wireless power techniques fall into two categories, non-radiative and radiative. In near-field or non-radiative techniques, power is transferred over short distances by magnetic fields using inductive coupling between coils of wire or in a few devices by electric fields using capacitive coupling between electrodes. Applications of this type are electric toothbrush chargers, RFID tags, smartcards, and chargers for implantable medical devices like artificial cardiac pacemakers, and inductive powering or charging of electric vehicles like trains or buses. A current focus is to develop wireless systems to charge mobile and handheld computing devices such as cellphones, digital music players and portable computers without being tethered to a wall plug.

Market value of private smart grid wireless communications networks in the U.S. from 2010 to 2015 (in million U.S. dollars). Global Market for Wi-Fi/WLAN, Wireless Display/Video, MobileWiMAX & LTE (4G) and ZigBee Chipsets in Consumer Electronics & Automation Applications worth $20.4 Billion by 2017.

Track 12:Semiconductor Technology

Semiconductor devices are electronic components that exploit the electronic properties of semiconductor materials, principally silicon, germanium, and gallium arsenide, as well as organic semiconductors. Semiconductor devices have replaced thermionic devices (vacuum tubes) in most applications. They use electronic conduction in the solid state as opposed to the gaseous state or thermionic emission in a high vacuum.
Semiconductor devices are manufactured both as single discrete devices and as integrated circuits (ICs), which consist of a number—from a few (as low as two) to billions—of devices manufactured and interconnected on a single semiconductor substrate, or wafer.
Semiconductor materials are useful because their behavior can be easily manipulated by the addition of impurities, known as doping. Semiconductor conductivity can be controlled by introduction of an electric or magnetic field, by exposure to light or heat, or by mechanical deformation of a doped monocrystalline grid; thus, semiconductors can make excellent sensors. Current conduction in a semiconductor occurs via mobile or "free" electrons and holes, collectively known as charge carriers. Doping a semiconductor such as silicon with a small amount of impurity atoms, such as phosphorus or boron, greatly increases the number of free electrons or holes within the semiconductor. When a doped semiconductor contains excess holes it is called "p-type", and when it contains excess free electrons it is known as "n-type", where p (positive for holes) or n (negative for electrons) is the sign of the charge of the majority mobile charge carriers. The semiconductor material used in devices is doped under highly controlled conditions in a fabrication facility, or fab, to control precisely the location and concentration of p- and n-type dopants. The junctions which form where n-type and p-type semiconductors join together are called p–n junctions.The silicon carbide semiconductor market is estimated to grow $3182.89 Million by 2020, at an estimated CAGR of 42.03% from 2014 to 2020

Market Analysis

The electricity generation sector is essential to meeting modern energy needs. Utilities and other electricity producers transform different types of primary energy – everything from natural gas to coal to wind and hydroelectric power – into electricity to be used in homes and businesses. Through 2040, global demand for electricity will continue to rise steeply, as the fuels used for electricity generation continue to shift to lower-carbon sources, such as natural gas, nuclear and renewables.

Electricity generation is the largest and fastest-growing source of global energy demand –bigger than the amount of primary energy used in the transportation and residential/ commercial sectors combined. Demand for electricity continues to rise in all parts of the world. Population and economic growth are two main reasons, just as they are for the projected demand growth in other fuels. But with electricity there is an extra factor at work: the switch to electricity from other forms of energy, such as oil or biomass for lighting and heating in the home, or coal in the industrial sector.

Fuels used for electricity generation vary greatly by region; all regions are shifting toward less carbon-intensive sources. Europe already is a leader in this regard. Today, Europe gets about half its electricity from nuclear and renewable fuels. This percentage will rise to nearly 65 percent by 2040, mostly because of strong growth in wind power, which will account for 20 percent of Europe’s power by then, up from 5 percent currently.
