Recap of the 2017 IEEE LI Section Power Electronics Symposium
The first annual Long Island Power Electronics Symposium & Exhibits was held on 2017 November 9 from noon to 8 PM at the Hauppauge Radisson located at 110 Motor Parkway, Hauppauge LI. All area professionals involved in all sectors of power electronics were invited.
At the event, 46 companies showcased their products and services in a 40-table exhibit hall packed with attendees, while two technical lecture tracks took place in separate chambers. After a complimentary networking lunch, the lectures were kicked off with a keynote address by Sam Aronson, former BNL Director, where he discussed ongoing humanitarian efforts to power off-grid African villages. Technical presentation topics included recent advances in GaN, digital control of power electronics, bi-directional DC/DC conversion, and stability analysis of linear and PWM power amplifiers. Wrapping up the technical lectures was an inspiring talk on the Tesla Science Center (TSC) at Shoreham, presented by Neil Baggett, a member of the TSC Board of Directors.
The official attendance count at the Symposium was 375, including lecturers, exhibitors and general attendees.
