Energy is a fundamental theme for investigating the sustainability of human existence and the introduction of new technologies to improve the quality of life on earth. A clear understanding of the issues of energy conversion, storage, delivery, and utilization is critical for innovative contributions to this theme. Research explores specific issues such as effective implementation of deeper penetrations of renewable and energy storage resources and the impact of policy and economics of new technologies and energy utilization. Almost all forms of transportation have adopted significant utilization of electric power technologies. Uncertainty and cyber security are major concerns and span almost all aspects of this theme. Common topics for most applications involve electric power circuits including switched power supplies and converters.
