The increasing consumption of consumer electronics and automobiles devices like laptops, tablets, smartphones, and household electronics is playing an instrumental role in the high growth of the power electronics market. From introducing electric vehicles to the advent of clinically invasive products in the medical sector, power electronics is adding new dimensions to every industry. This rapid growth is also fueled by advanced technology and the need for stable power supply. Enterprises today are revamping their systems and replacing traditional bipolar power transistors with digitally controlled microcontrollers and signal processors such as mixed-signal smart power ICs, MOSFETs, and IGBTs. Power electronics has even emerged as the foundation of new mobile power systems technologies such as variable frequency AC distribution for electric aircraft, and medium voltage DC grids for electric ships.
Organizations are resorting to advanced power electronic devices to enhance power efficiency, lower costs, and optimize power density. Also, operating in switching mode, the power electronic devices drive the efficiency of the power electronics apparatus by 98 percent. Unlike traditional warship electrical systems, today’s and future’s warship electrical systems are also driven by power electronics. Companies are also looking for wide band-gap power semiconductor devices comprising silicon carbide and gallium nitride to increase efficiency, minimize chances of system failure, reduce operational costs, and improve the power conversion efficiency.
With power electronics becoming an indispensable part of most organizations today, determining the right solution provider to excel in this revolution plays a crucial role.
