    • 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.

    • Special Section in 2023 vol. 8 (43) has been opened:
      Artificial Intelligent Based Designs and Applications for the Control of Electrical Drives.
      New deadline: 30 November 2023

    • Documenting papers published in Power Electronics and Drives

      Since the journal Power Electronics and Drives is a continuation of the journal "Scientific Papers of the Institute of Electrical Machines, Drives and Measurements of the Wroclaw University of Technology. Studies and Research" (ISSN 1733-0718), at realigning articles in the PBN Base, you will need to manually link them with the old title. This is due to the fact placing our journal “Power Electronics and Drives” in the "List of scientific journals that contain the history of the journals from the lists published for the years 2013-2016” (pdf) under the previous title "Prace Naukowe Instytutu Maszyn, Napędów i Pomiarów Elektrycznych Politechniki Wrocławskiej. Studia i Materiały".

      (W związku z tym, że czasopismo Power Electronics and Drives jest kontynuacją czasopisma "Prace Naukowe Instytutu Maszyn, Napędów i Pomiarów Elektrycznych Politechniki Wrocławskiej” (ISSN 1733-0718) przy ujednolicaniu czasopisma w Bazie PBN konieczne będzie jego powiązanie ręczne ze starym tytułem. Związane jest to faktem umieszczenia naszego czasopisma Power Electronics and Drives na "Wykazie czasopism naukowych zawierających historię czasopisma z publikowanych wykazów za lata 2013-2016" (pdf) pod poprzednim tytułem "Prace Naukowe Instytutu Maszyn, Napędów i Pomiarów Elektrycznych Politechniki Wrocławskiej”.)
