    This article reviews the present state and trends in the development of key parts of controlled induction motor drive systems: converter topologies, modulation methods, as well as control and estimation techniques. Two- and multilevel voltage-source converters, current-source converters, and direct converters are described. The main part of all the produced electric energy is used to feed electric motors, and the conversion of electrical power into mechanical power involves motors ranges from less than 1 W up to several dozen megawatts.

    In the future, we need a new production system (e.g., robot system) releasing workers from dirty and dangerous work environments. Currently, many organizations are trying to develop new safety regulation for robots in the human environment. If the regulation are established, more and more robots will be introduced in our living environments. The future research subject of the mechatronics system will be on the nanoscale control system, which involves biomedical applications. By combining multisensor fusion technology, the performance of mechatronic and robotics systems and the derived applications can be enhanced and extended soon. View full abstract»

    The power grid is a massive interconnected network used to deliver electricity from suppliers to consumers and has been a vital energy supply. To minimize the impact of climate change while at the same time maintaining social prosperity, smart energy must be embraced to ensure a balanced economical growth and environmental sustainability. There fore, in the last few years, the new concept of a smart grid (SG) became a critical enabler in the contempo rary world and has attracted increas ing attention of policy makers and engineers. This article introduces the main concepts and technological challenges of SGs and presents the authors' views on some required challenges and opportunities pre sented to the IEEE Industrial Electronics Society (IES) in this new and exciting frontier.
