Electric Power Flow and Power Electronics
Under the global warming problem, there are large requirements for effective electric energy usage, and electric power systems which donft emit CO2 (Photovoltaic, EV etc.). @@Realization of low carbon societyAGreen Innovation
In the electric power flow from generation to consumption, the role of power conversion technology is important, and the innovation of electronics for them (=Power Electronics) is inevitable.
- By the establishment of next-generation highly-effective power converters
(Inverters etc.), their new installation to the fields where this technology has
not been used yet is expected, in addition to the efficiency improvement
of existing power converters.
iConsumed power by motors is around 60% of total electric power consumed; installation ratio of inverters is 10% of them.)
