Power electronics

Power electronics is an art to convert voltage, current, or frequency with high efficiency. For instance, the dc output power of a PV system is converted to ac 50/60 Hz by a power conditioner which is one of the power electronics applications. Power electronics plays an important role in a various area like power system, heavy industry, transportation, and home appliance.

Benefits of learning power electronics

Power electronics needs the most basic knowledge in electrical engineering such as electric circuits, electronic circuits, control, electric machinery. Therefore, through researching on power electronics, you can gain a deep understanding of them. Even though your future work is not directly related to power electronics, the knowledge of the electrical engineering will support you in various fields.
