Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Abstract

The growth of electric power usage has continued to accelerate with the electrification of so many aspects of normal life in a modern world reliant on electricity for its prime source of energy. The increased take-up of sustainable energy production from photovoltaics and wind generation along with the ever-increasing demand for electricity from fossil fuel generation has more than doubled since the 1970 s, and power electronics plays a key role in converting these disparate forms of energy generation into electricity. Power electronics as a discipline covers a wide range of power conversion from grid-level transmission and distribution to power conversion by individual consumers.
