The 4rd International IEEE Workshop on Power Electronics and Power Quality Applications will be held on May 30 to 31, 2019, at Universidad Nacional de Colombia Sede Manizales, Manizales, Colombia. This biannual workshop provides a space for students, academics, and industry professionals to collaborate on meeting the ever-increasing power electronicsand power quality challenges in the Latin America region. The workshop covers a range of topics, including power electronics (PE) converters, adjustable speed drives, PE in transmission and distribution, power quality (PQ) analysis, PQ design and modeling, and simulation & education in PE/PQ.

Call for paper description

Papers are peer-reviewed and selected on the basis of technical qualitytopic affinity, and applicability to the industry. Submissions are restricted to a minimum of four and a maximum of six pages, and English or Spanish will be considered for publication. It is important to highlight that, since the first edition, PEPQA's proceedings are indexed by IEEEXploreSCOPUS, and Thomson's Conference Proceedings Citation Index among others. All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference.
