Happy New Year from Mariusz Malinowski, President of the Industrial Electronics Society


Dear Industrial Electronics Society Members,

We enter the new year full of enthusiasm, hoping that for the first time in the last years, the beginning of the year will not surprise us. The most important task for all of us is to reactivate relationships during direct meetings of the Industrial Electronics Society (IES). We hope that our IES Chapters and Student Branch Chapters will organize many exciting events locally, strengthening the technical community. IES will focus on organizing many conferences and workshops globally, please take the opportunity to meet and exchange experience and knowledge during them. I want to invite IES members to actively participate in IES flagship conferences IEEE International Conference on Industrial Technology (4-6 April 2023), which will take place soon in Orlando (USA), IEEE 32nd International Symposium on Industrial Electronics (19-21 June 2023), that will be organized in Helsinki (Finland), and 49th Annual Conference of the IEEE Industrial Electronics Society (16-19 October 2023) in Singapore, that is the most significant event in the IES.

We are also looking forward to the new year of the 2022 Journal Citation Reports publication. Especially for our two young journals IEEE Open Journal of the Industrial Electronics Society and IEEE Journal of Emerging and Selected Topics in Industrial Electronics, which will be indexed for the first time. I am keeping my fingers crossed for them. Many more essential challenges are ahead, but we look at them with full confidence in success. With such strong support from IES members, all challenges can be overcome. I wish IES and you a successful 2023.

Photovoltaic (PV) string inverters with transformerless grid-connected architecture are the most commonly used solar converters owing to their appliance-friendly and cost-effective benefits. A novel circuit configuration for these converters is presented in this awarded paper, which seeks to address the shortcomings of most of the conventional topologies such as the problem of leakage current, voltage ratio transformations, and power quality.


This article proves how hairpin windings can be a key enabler in obtaining the high levels of automation, programmability and repeatibility required by the green revolution in transportation, highlighting how high power density, efficiency, reliability and automation can be all pursued at the same time.

Haoyu Wang (ShanghaiTech University, China) – 18 November 2022
The datacenter is booming to be the critical infrastructure to support the proper functioning of modern societies. This webinar gives a comprehensive overview of the technical trends in data center power supply technologies.


Massimiliano Pirani (Marche Polytechnic University, Ancona, Italy) – 24 November 2022
The RMAS (Relational-Model Multi-Agent System) architecture is proposed as a support for the new challenges that the research and practitioners’ community in industrial agents has to face. RMAS aims to harness the challenges of artificial intelligence in industry, whilst grounding them in the rich but rock-solid IEC 61499 standard provisions.
