History of the conference began in 1969 when the first Scientific Conference on electrical energy conversion was hold in Kyiv. It was the first large gathering of scientists and engineers, theoreticians and practitioners, representatives of various companies and organizations - specialists in the field of converting machinery and power electronics; gathering where almost all main problems of electrical energy and power conversion were discussed.

During the period till 1991 five conferences entitled "Problems of converting equipment" was organized.

New life with a different name and title of conference was expanded in 2000 when 6-th International Scientific Conference "Problems of present-day electrotechnics" started.

Since 2000 conference is organized every 2 years to join scientists from Ukraine, Russia, Baltic countries, Poland, Czech Republic, Bulgaria, the United States, and other countries.

The peculiarity of the XI International scientific conference "Problems of present-day electrotechnics-2010" was the introduction, along with the traditional form of submission of such forms as poster presentations.

XII International Scientific & Technical Conference "Problems present-day electrotechnics -2012" for the first time in the modern history of the conference was held as a field conference on the territory of Vinnytsia National Technical University, which was one of the organizers of the event in 2012.

The distinctive feature of the XIII International scientific conference "Problems of present-day of electrotechnics 2014" was the idea of joint events with the new conference «IEEE International Conference on Intelligent Energy and Power Systems» under the auspices of the International Society of IEEE, which allowed to expand international contacts and intensify cooperation between scientists from different countries.

XIV International Scientific & Technical Conference "Problems present-day electrotechnics -2016" is held traditional under the auspices of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) of Ukraine - Institute of Electrodynamics of NAS of Ukraine, National Technical University of Ukraine "Kyiv Polytechnic Institute" in cooperation with leading Ukrainian research organizations and universities:

  • National Technical University "Kharkiv Polytechnic Institute"
  • National University "Lvivska Politechnika"
  • Scientific Council on Fundamentals of Electrical Power Engineering
  • IEEE Ukraine Section
  • National Electrotechnical Committee of Ukraine
  • Fund "Lady Science"

Range of problems conference in the years of its existence, expanded according to the latest trends in electronics, power engineering, converting equipment, control systems, analysis theory and process calculation.

Publication of conference papers will be in issue of "Tekhnichna electrodynamika" journal which is included in international databases SCOPUS, COMPENDEX, INDEX COPERNICUS, ELIBRARY, EBSCO, PROQUEST, presented in Ukrainian referring systems, “Abstract Journal” VINITI RAS (Russia, Moscow). The journal is included to the list of professional publications approved by Certified Staff Evaluation Department of Ukraine. Electronic edition of the journal is stored in the National Library of Ukraine named after V.I. Vernadsky

During the Conference scientific meetings, discussions and recreation of the participants including visits to historical places of the Kyiv and Ukraine will be organically combined.

Welcome to the Conference!
