    This paper discusses extrapolations of current silicon power device technology into the future, followed by discussions of wide band gap (WBG) power devices with a focus on silicon carbide and gallium nitride. Other WBG materials are included from carbon, such as diamond and nanotubes, to various nitrides. Far future material development, that may impact power electronic devices decades out, is al...

    In this paper, the details of practical circuit and control implementation of an electric spring for reactive power compensation and voltage regulation of the ac mains are presented. With Hooke's law published three centuries ago, power electronics-based reactive power controllers are turned into electric springs (ESs) for regulating the ac mains of a power grid. The proposed ES has inherent advan... View full abstract»

    Inductive power transfer (IPT) has progressed to be a power distribution system offering significant benefits in modern automation systems and particularly so in stringent environments. Here, the same technology may be used in very dirty environments and in a clean room manufacture. This paper reviews the development of simple factory automation (FA) IPT systems for both today's complex applicatio... View full abstract»

Aims & Scope

The scope of the journal encompasses selected topics and emerging technologies in power electronics, including components, systems, and processes used in solid-state energy conversion and applications in energy conservation and efficiency. Solid-state energy conversion includes electronic power conversion systems for mobile, wireless, and other applications; and power conversion systems associated with energy conversion, storage, and interface between electric and non-electric energy conversion, including power converters and drives. Applications in energy conservation and efficiency include industrial transformation of energy, manufacturing operations, local grid connections, use and management, local generation and co-generation.
