  AGM 8th November

The meeting was attended by 9 members and a guest speaker, Jochen Koszecsha from the European Centre for Power Electronics (ECPE).

Jochen described the makeup and work of the ECPE. The EPSMA management committee will be exploring how we can collaborate with the ECPE in the future.

Management committee members required to step down this year where duly re-elected as were Bernhard Erdl as Chairman and Manfred Schlenk as Vice Chairman.

As Chairman, Bernhard Erdl gave an address and commented on the EPSMA activities during the year. He gave particular thanks to the members of the technical committee for their efforts. The TC members are listed in this newsletter as a ‘roll of honour’.

The secretariat gave an update on membership (two new members 2017) and finances, reporting a stable position.

Vlad Grigore of Efore gave a presentation about the latest activities of the EPSMA technical committee with details below.

Members discussed a new ‘look’ for the website which has now been implemented. Feedback is welcomed. Website traffic statistics were presented.

Clemens Klemm of Siemens gave a presentation about the standard: IEC 61204-7 and its future adoption by industry and test houses. The meeting discussed and debated the effect that this might have on member companies.

The meeting discussed in detail the next potential projects for the Technical Committee to undertake and their priorities. Evaluating new standards and their differences was seen as important.
