Switching, controlling and converting electrical power
Controlling, converting and securing electricity are indispensable processes in the transportation and distribution of energy. Without power electronics, it is impossible to provide end-users with the right form of electricity. A simple example is the difference between a subway and an electric car. Both are electrically powered but have a different energy source and a difference in energy consumption.
Switching, controlling and converting power
By applying power electronics in the distribution network, the electrical energy is transformed, controlled, switched and secured. These ‘actions’ are performed by various power electronics components such as various types of semiconductors or combinations thereof, special fuses, capacitors and resistors. Depending on the application, these products can be simple or very complex.
