Power Electronics

A section of Electronics (ISSN 2079-9292).

Section Information

Recent advances in power electronics have enabled the rapid development of applications in power systems, including renewable energy generation, high-voltage DC (HVDC) transmission, flexible AC transmission systems, energy storage, electric vehicles, and microgrids. Power electronics are also the foundation of new mobile power system technologies, such as variable-frequency AC distribution for more-electric aircraft and medium-voltage DC grids for electric ships. This section focuses on the analysis, design, and implementation of power electronics circuits and their related systems.

Subject Areas

The subject areas of interest include, but are not limited to

Power converters (topologies, their control, and reliability),

Adjustable speed drives (AC and DC motor),

Power quality and utility applications,
