Innovative Design Challenge @ EPE'23 ECCE Europe

The EPE Innovative Design Challenge encourages students to develop innovative designs for power electronic applications and demonstrate their ideas through hardware prototyping in one or more of the following areas:

  • Passive and active components
  • Topologies and control
  • Gate drivers and modulation
  • Measurement and condition monitoring
  • Automation and machines
  • Artificial intelligence and machine learning
  • Energy storage
  • Unconventional applications
  • and other power electronic applications

Submissions will be evaluated based on innovativeness, relevance, power density, and cost implications as judging criteria.

All PhD and Master’s students are invited to submit a proposal in maximum 2 pages that includes:

  • Team member(s)
  • Supervisor(s)
  • Affiliation
  • Abstract
    • with clearly stated innovation value
    • supported by quantitative justifications, and relevant waveforms demonstrating competitiveness,
    • as well as a photo of the prototype.

The deadline for submission is June 30th, 2023.A template to describe your project can be downloaded HERE.

Please email proposals to Saeed Peyghami at with the subject line “EPE23 Innovative Design Challenge”.

The acceptance notifications will be sent on July 15th, 2023.

The selected applicants will have the privilege of presenting their ideas at the conference. If you are among the chosen ones, please create a video that highlights your innovation and competitiveness. The video should be filmed within the lab environment, and it is crucial to bring and demonstrate the hardware prototype offline during the presentation.
