Held from 20-22 May 2014 in Nuremberg, Germany, PCIM Europe 2014 will present the latest trends in power electronics components and systems for use in the wind and solar energy sector. As well as the products and solutions on display at the exhibition, visitors will be able to attend vendor presentations and contribute to expert discussions on the latest developments in wind and solar energy at the free industry forums.
Together the exhibition and conference have a role to play in the ambitious project to significantly increase the proportion of renewable energy in generating electricity.
Infineon Technologies will, for example, be tackling the topic “Power Semiconductors in Energy Efficient Smart-Grid Installations” at the industry forum. Trade visitors will also learn what technological challenges “Energy harvesting, long-distance energy transfer and efficient energy consumption” represent for the “German Energy Turnaround”.
A practice oriented exchange of ideas between developers and users of power electronics are at the core of the more than 250 presentations, three keynote speeches, six seminars and ten tutorials. In a feature session “New and Renewable Energy Systems” experts will, for example, report on the development of a “Hybrid Power Generation System“, which could provide an independent and environmentally-friendly energy supply in a residential area.
The session “A Low Cost Photovoltaic Maximum Power Point Tracking Buck Converter for Remote Cell Phone Charging Applications” looks at how photovoltaic hybrid systems can be used to centrally generate the total energy supply for remote areas from renewable energies.
