On behalf of the Conference Sponsors and the Local Committee we would like to extend a sincere invitation to attend the 2021 Industrial and Commercial Power System Technical Conference (I&CPS 2021), April 27 – 30, 2021.  This will be a virtual conference, similar to the 2020 I&CPS Technical Conference and IAS Annual Meeting.

This is the 57th annual IEEE Industrial and Commercial Power Systems (I&CPS) Technical Conference. The Conference reflects the activities of the I&CPS Department of the Industry Applications Society (IAS) of the IEEE.  Over its 57 year history, the conference has been the forum bringing together IAS’ experienced engineers and our younger engineers. Many aspects of Industrial & Commercial Power Systems are presented and discussed in relevant papers sponsored by one of the four I&CPS Department Committees participating in this conference (Rural Committee has a separate technical conference). The Technical Committees participating in this conference are:

  • Codes and Standards
  • Energy Systems
  • Power System Engineering
  • Power System Protection

A centerpiece and key activity of this conference is the development and updating of one of the most comprehensive series of IEEE Standards on Recommended Practices for Industrial and Commercial Power Systems (formerly known as the 13 Color Books). Standards Series 3000 working groups have assigned panels, presentations and comments discussion sessions in this conference aimed completing the review and publication efforts of the set which articulates many of best practices for designers and maintainers of industrial and commercial power systems.

We have formed an exceptional organizing committee consisting both of experienced IEEE volunteers and younger members from our very active student branch. We expect the 2021 conference to be successful and will feature a great program for everyone who wishes to join us. Please spread the word, tell your boss, and your colleagues about the 2021 I&CPS Technical Conference, April 27 – 30.
