ram233 Posted September 9, 2009 Report Share Posted September 9, 2009 Power electronic converters can be found wherever there is a need to modify the electrical energy form (i.e modify its voltage, current or frequency). Therefore, their power range is from some milliwatts (as in a mobile phone) to hundreds of megawatts (e.g in a HVDC transmission system). With "classical" electronics, electrical currents and voltage are used to carry information, whereas with power electronics, they carry power. Therefore the main metric of power electronics becomes the efficiency.MODERATOR EDIT:SPAM REMOVED Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
