Switching, controlling and converting electrical power
Controlling, transforming and protecting electricity are indispensable processes when it comes to power transportation and distribution. Without power electronics, it is impossible to provide end users with the right amount of electricity. A simple example is the difference between a metro and an electric car. Both vehicles are electrically powered, but have different energy sources and energy consumption.
By applying power electronics to the distribution network, the electrical energy is transformed, controlled, switched and protected. These ‘processes’ are performed by various power electronics components such as semiconductors, fuses, capacitors and resistors. Depending on the application, the solution can be complex.
