A modern society relies on power and its reliable and intelligent control. The Power Electronics Innovation Center (PEIC) is a new competence center of Politecnico di Torino (PoliTO) focused on power electronics.

Power electronics is a key enabling technology in transportation electrification, production of electrical energy and advanced manufacturing. Power electronics can lead the innovation in such fields by becoming smaller, faster, more reliable and capable of managing higher power levels. More intelligence can and must be carried on board of power electronics to make it open to the ICT, in line with Industry 4.0 objectives.
