    The need for cleaner and more efficient electrical power generation along with limited funds for the construction of bulk generation and transmission facilities has motivated power system utilities to deploy distributed energy resources (DERs). Onsite generation by DERs offers various economic and environmental benefits for end customers, utilities, and society. These benefits include enhanced rel... View full abstract»

    During the past two decades, solid-state transformers (SSTs) have evolved quickly and have been considered for replacing conventional low-frequency (LF) transformers in applications such as traction, where weight and volume savings and substantial efficiency improvements can be achieved, or in smart grids because of their controllability. As shown in this article, all main modern SST topologies re... View full abstract»

    The most important impact of power electronics on our society in the last 50 years has been the elimination of the 60-Hz ac power delivery system for consumer electronic products. Central to this achievement is the use of silicon (Si) power devices and pulsewidth modulation (PWM) techniques in delivering regulated ac and dc powers to low-voltage (LV) loads such as light-emitting diodes and compute...

    Increasing decentralized energy production challenges the distribution grid [1], [2], and, in many countries, power generation and consumption are spatially separated, meaning that energy must be transferred over a long distance [3]. This calls for novel ways to transfer power to the loads without overloading grid feeders and to connect new intelligent loads and storage [4], which typically form t... View full abstract»

    Electromagnetic waves were first postulated by James Clerk Maxwell (1831-1879) in 1865. To demonstrate their existence 22 years later, Heinrich Hertz (1857-1894) had to design new instrumentation that he used to carry out an experiment than had never been performed before. To detect the waves produced by his oscillating electric circuit, he used a very crude receiver, subsequently known as the Her... View full abstract»
