Power electronics – An overview
The field of power electronics is playing a very important role in providing us with electrical energy for our daily needs in industries, offices and at home. To meet the ever increasing demand for electrical energy, it is no more sufficient to use conventional sources of energy. Demand for energy is increasing, but fossil fuels are depleting. It is thus essential to use renewable sources of energy for producing electrical power. Moreover, because of the rapid developments in electronics and its applications, different kinds of power are required. Some may require AC, others might use DC. Our computers get AC as input, but the internal devices use DC of different ratings. Hence, for conversion and controlling of power, power electronics is very much essential.
