Power Electronics and Drives (PEAD) is an open access, peer-reviewed journal which aims to publish original scientific papers (research and survey papers) on new theoretical developments, novel applications, and case studies regarding advances in power electronics and electrical drive systems. Articles published in our journal cover full scope of power electronics and its applications in electrical drives, renewable energy systems and mechatronic systems. The published articles deal with the following subjects:

  • power electronic converters;
  • intelligent control in power electronics and drives;
  • state variable estimation for AC and DC drives;
  • diagnostics in power electronics and drive systems;
  • fault-tolerant control strategies in power electronic converters and drives;
  • industrial drives, renewable energy systems and smart grid technologies;
  • power consumption and energy efficiency of converter-fed drives;
  • electrical machines modeling, simulations and analysis;
  • motion control, mechatronics;
  • education issues in power electronics and drives;
  • other related topics.

The journal is an annual and is published in the open volume system. The basic version of the journal is the electronic version (eISSN: 2543-4292.

Article Processing Charges for golden open access starting from 1st January 2024.

Power Electronics and Drives is specially oriented to young scientists, PhD students and young Doctors, who can publish (quickly) their research results and extended summaries of their PhD dissertations (in this last case the number of pages should be consulted with the Editor-in-Chief).

The journal observes a code of ethics based on academic standards (see for details at the journal web site).

Power Electronics and Drives (PEAD) has been published under this title since 2016. It continues the tradition of the journal entitled Scientific Papers of the Institute of Electrical Machines, Drives and Measurements of the Wroclaw University of Technology. Studies and Research, which has been published regularly since 2003 (occasionally from 1969), mainly in Polish. Since 2016 all papers in the whole journal has been published in English.

The journal is published and financed by the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Department of Electrical Machines, Drives and Measurements at the Wroclaw University of Science and Technology. Since 2019 the journal is published under the patronage of the Electrical Engineering Committee of the Polish Academy of Sciences.
