The worldwide shift towards electrification and digitalization mandates the adoption of energy-efficient and economically viable methods for electricity generation, transmission, and utilization. Meeting this demand requires the integration of power electronics and digital technologies, which are critical to address these challenges. Recently, modern energy grids are increasingly incorporating high-power, high-/medium-voltage power electronic converters and systems, e.g., high-voltage direct-current (HVDC), static synchronous compensators (STATCOMs), large-scale renewable power plants and power-to-x stations, hyperscale data centres, solid-state circuit breakers, solid-state transformers, and grid-forming energy storage systems, etc.

Welcome to this workshop, which aims to provide a forum where the speakers of government, industry, and academia can share and discuss the latest developments in high-power electronics and digital technologies for future net-zero energy systems. With a strong industry focus, the event is co-sponsored by IEEE Power Electronics Society (PELS) and Digital Futures and co-organized by KTH Royal Institute of Technology and Hitachi Energy. The program features three topic areas: 1) high-power electronic devices and converters, 2) system integration and operation, and 3) grid stability, security, and digitalization.
