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.
Power Electronics and Drives is now listed on the Ministry's list of scientific journals. From 2/12/2021, a paper in PEAD is evaluated with 20 points.

NEWS. October 2023:

The Power Electronics and Drives journal has been positively evaluated for inclusion in the Web of Sciences (Emerging Sources Citation Index - ESCI).

After the reviews received from Clarivate Analytics in July 2021, which did not accept the journal into this database, a two-year waiting period was required while the journal addressed the suggestions made by CA. Last year, in July 2022 a new application was submitted to Clarivate, and at least after 1.5 year the CA recognized the continued development of the journal and the Editors’ reply. As a result, PEAD was accepted for inclusion in the WoS database. All articles, starting from 2021 (vol. 6) will be indexed in WoS soon. In June 2024 we expect the inaugural Impact Factor.

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). All manuscripts are checked with iThenticate anti-plagiarism software. Publication of articles until the end of 2023 is free of charge. From 2024, all articles are subject to payment and the costs are described in the Article Processing Charges (APC) tab.

Power Electronics and Drives is specially oriented to young scientists, PhD students and young Doctors, who can publish (quickly and without any charge) 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).
The full texts of articles are freely available from the Power Electronics and Drives web site according to Creative Commons Licence (CC BY-NC-ND) and, since 2018, through the DOAJ database serving the best interests of the scientific community.
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.

    To facilitate this, authors need to ensure that their manuscripts are prepared in a way that does not show their identity.
    The obvious is to remove names and affiliations under the title within the manuscript.
    In the first version of the paper, the field with authors information must be empty.


    In the final version of the paper, changes suggested by the reviewers (and Editors) must be marked by other colour.

    In case of plagiarism or allegation of research misconduct the paper will not be published until the authors will refer to the doubts.
