Power Electronics


Power electronics is a technology embraces the areas of power semiconductor devices, converter circuits, electrical machines, drives, advanced control techniques, computer-aided design and simulation, digital signal processors (DSPs), and field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs), as well as artificial intelligence (AI) techniques.
Some of the applications:

  • dc and ac power supplies
  • heating and lighting control
  • electronic welding
  • power line volt–ampere reactive (VAR) and harmonic compensators
  • high-voltage dc (HVdc) systems
  • flexible ac transmission systems (FACTs)
  • Renewable energy systems such as Photovoltaic (PV) systems, Wind Power Systems, and high-efficiency energy systems, etc.
  • bulk utility energy storage
  • Industrial applications such as motor drives
  • electric and hybrid vehicles
  • industrial automation
