In the field of power supply and power electronics, groundbreaking new technologies are paving the way to transform our modern world in a sustainable way. The continuous search for more efficient, reliable and environmentally friendly energy sources has led to a wide range of innovative developments. The introduction of renewable energy sources such as solar power and wind power has changed the way we generate and distribute energy. Power electronic converters enable efficient conversion and control of these renewable energy sources to seamlessly integrate them into the power grid.
Energy efficiency is a key concern, and advanced switching power supplies offer higher efficiencies, reduced losses, and lower environmental impact compared to traditional linear power supplies. Energy storage systems such as batteries and supercaps are critical components for energy storage and contribute to the stability and reliability of the power grid.
In addition, new semiconductor materials such as silicon carbide (SiC) and gallium nitride (GaN) open up opportunities for more power dense and higher switching frequencies in power supply systems, leading to more compact and efficient solutions.
