IEEE Estonia IES/PELS/IAS/PES Joint Chapter

This chapter serves as a platform for all Estonian members of the Industrial Electronics Society (IES), the Power Electronics Society (PELS), the Industry Application Society (IAS), and the Power & Energy Society (PES) of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).

Our mission is to serve our members through continuous technical education, mentoring of students and young professionals, organizing networking events, advising industrial enterprises and Estonian policymakers. We foster active collaboration with similar chapters from all around the world (and especially from the Baltic Sea Region) and support organization of IEEE conferences, special sessions, and journal special issues/sections to help our members in gaining international networking experience.

We especially encourage Student & Young Professional IEEE members to join one or more of our sister societies. For a tiny fee, you will uncover countless conference travel awards, competitions, funding opportunities, etc.

The present Joint Societies Chapter covers the broad spectrum of industrial and power electronics-related topics and their applications in the industry, as well as electric power engineering. The present Joint Society Chapter was formed by Andrii Chub by incorporating two Societies from the past IA/PE/RA Chapter into the IE/PEL Chapter in 2021.

Prior to this, IEEE Estonia Section had two chapters: Industrial Electronics / Power Electronics Joint Societies Chapter founded by Dmitri Vinnikov, and Industry Applications / IEEE Power & Energy / Robotics and Automation Joint Societies Chapter founded by Marko Koort.

About sister societies

The Industrial Electronics Society (IES) through its members encompasses a diverse range of technical activities devoted to the application of electronics and electrical sciences for the enhancement of industrial and manufacturing processes. These technical activities address the latest developments in intelligent and computer control systems, robotics, factory communications and automation, flexible manufacturing, data acquisition and signal processing, vision systems, and power electronics. The Society continually updates its program of technical activities to meet the needs of modern industry.

The vision of the IES is to advance global prosperity by fostering technological innovation, enabling members’ careers and promoting community worldwide. The IES promotes the engineering process of creating, developing, integrating, sharing, and applying knowledge about electro- and information technologies and sciences for the benefit of humanity and the profession.

The Power Electronics Society (PELS) has facilitated and guided the development and innovation in power electronics technology, for over 30 years. This technology encompasses the effective use of electronic components, the application of circuit theory and design techniques, and the development of analytical tools toward efficient conversion, control, and condition of electric power.

The Power Electronics Society is dedicated to:

  • Upholding the vital scientific and educational aspects of power electronics and its applications.
  • Keeping its members around the globe up to date on state-of-the-art technological developments and advances in power electronics research.In striving to build knowledge and awareness of the latest technologies and other advances in power electronics, the PELS’s goal is to keep members current and competitive in the workplace and provide them with the tools necessary to help them grow both personally and professionally. We invite you to join us and benefit from a world of invaluable information and support.

The objectives of the Power Electronics Society shall be scientific, literary, and educational in character. The society shall advance the theory and practice of electrical and electronics engineering and of the allied arts and sciences and it shall promote a high level of technical excellence among its members. PELS shall aid in promoting close cooperation and exchange of technical information among its members and affiliates, and to this end shall hold meetings for the presentation of papers and their discussion, shall sponsor periodicals and special publications, and through its committees shall study and provide the needs of its members and affiliates.

Field of Interest:
The field of interest of the Society shall be the development and application of power electronic systems and technologies, which encompass the effective use of electronic components, the application of circuit theory and design techniques and the development of analytical methods and tools toward efficient electronic conversion, control, and conditioning of electric power to enable the sustainable use of energy.

Applications of Power Electronics:

  • Computer and Telecommunications Equipment
  • Data Centers
  • Consumer Electronics Products
  • Automobiles
  • Mass Transportation
  • Industrial and Commercial Systems
  • Medical Devices
  • Lighting
  • Space and Military Systems
  • Utility Power and Smartgrids
  • Renewable Energy Systems

IAS Vision:
The IEEE Industry Applications Society (IAS) will be a world leader in the advancement of science and technology linking theory and practice in the application of electrical and electronic systems for the benefit of humanity.

IAS Mission:
IEEE Industry Applications Society enables the advancement of theory and practice in the design, development, manufacturing and application of safe, sustainable, reliable, smart electrical systems, equipment and services.

What We Value:

  • The advancement of theory and practice of electrical and electronic engineering for the benefit of humanity;
  • The promotion of safe, reliable, sustainable and economical installations;
  • The sharing of knowledge in our domains;
  • The creation of engineering standards and recommended practices;
  • The professional development of our global membership.

The Power & Energy Society (PES) provides the world’s largest forum for sharing the latest in technological developments in the electric power industry, for developing standards that guide the development and construction of equipment and systems, and for educating members of the industry and the general public. Members of the Power & Energy Society are leaders in this field, and they — and their employers — derive substantial benefits from involvement with this unique and outstanding association.

To be the leading provider of scientific and engineering information on electric power and energy for the betterment of society, and the preferred professional development source for our members ~ Approved by the IEEE PES Governing Board, 17 July 2003

Field of Interest :
The scope of the Society embraces research, development, planning, design, construction, maintenance, installation and operation of equipment, structures, materials and power systems for the safe, sustainable, economic and reliable conversion, generation, transmission, distribution, storage and usage of electric energy, including its measurement and control.

IEEE IES Student Branch Chapter of the Tallinn University of Technology

The Industrial Electronics Society, which has the most members within this chapter, has a Student Branch Chapter (SBC) established by the IES student members from the Tallinn University of Technology. We would like to acknowledge that its leadership helps this chapter organize technical events, at least two every year, and shows exceptional performance every year, engaging its members.

We would like to encourage IEEE student members interested in this society to join this SBC as soon as possible. Be aware that the fee will be reduced to 1$ from 2025. At this negligible price, you will gain access to numerous local activities, travel assistance program, discounts at the IES conferences, etc.
