Welcome to The PEAL Chapter website
PEAL was formed in 2012 combining talent from the Power and Energy Society (PES), Industry Applications Society (IAS), and the Power Electronics Society (PELS) into a joint IEEE chapter. The chapter is conveniently located in the heart of Ohio’s Aviation Frontier with easy access to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base (WPAFB), GE Electrical Power Integrated Systems Center (EPISCenter), University of Dayton, Wright State University, Cedarville University, and Miami University. Together, the chapter partners with local industries to provide tremendous knowledge and experience to tackle the industries toughest problems among an ever increasing demand for power. PEAL is the perfect place for technical scholars and professionals to grow knowledge and expertise in an effort to keep up with increasing demands in technology. To join, click here: IEEE – PES – IAS – PELS.
PEAL Dayton actively strives to connect technical professionals and scholars with accessible information and knowledge exchange; to provide networking, leadership, and professional development opportunities; and to represent member interests of our societies.
Future Events are currently being planned. If you have an idea for a PEAL event, or would like to volunteer to host or hold a technical lecture, tour, educational event, or activity, then please let a PEAL officer know to help coordinate. Your feedback and suggestions are always welcome.
Conferences on related topics are also organized by other IEEE entities, particularly the Industrial Electronics Society, the Power and Energy Society, and the Power Electronics Society. If you are a member of PEAL, you may register to any meetings, conferences, or workshops they organize at member rate (with some restrictions, particularly that the only sponsors are one of these societies – if in doubt contact the PEAL Chair at email@example.com).
