Power electronics is the employment of solid-state electronics for the control and translation of electric power. Power electronics projects IEEE are available at our website. It also deals with the design, control, computation and integration of nonlinear, time-varying energy-processing electronic systems with fast dynamics.

Mercury-arc valves were the first high power electronic devices. In modern systems the power conversion is done with semiconductor switching devices such as diodes, thyristors and transistors. On the contrary to electronic systems concerned with transmission and dealing signals and data, in power electronics significant amounts of electrical energy are processed. An AC/DC converter (rectifier) is the most usual power electronics device found in many customer electronic devices, e.g. television sets, personal computers, battery chargers, etc. The power range is classically from tens of watts to several hundred watts. In industry a common application is the variable speed drive (VSD) that is used to regulate an induction motor. The power range of VSDs starts from a few hundred watts to tens of megawatts.
The power conversion systems can be classified according to the type of the input and output power
- AC to DC (rectifier)
- DC to AC (inverter)
- DC to DC (DC-to-DC converter)
- AC to AC (AC-to-AC converter)
