Dive in to the world of power electronics. Watch and listen as leaders from the industry share their insights on power electronics in science, technology, and even business. We’ve captured the essence of APEC 2018’s plenary sessions, which address the issues of immediate and long-term interests to the practicing power electronics engineer, in an easy-to-digest format. This summarized version highlights the words of distinguished professionals. Be prepared to learn:
- Why power is an essential element of advanced science and applied technology
- About the Vienna Rectifier, it’s needed improvements and suggested future development in rectifier technology
- End user perspectives in moving from silicon (Si) such as MOSFETs and IGBTs to silicon carbide (SiC) power converter devices
- An overview of wireless power transfer from power levels from micro-watts of far-field energy harvesting to kilo-watts level of near-field capacitive vehicle powering
- About 3D power packaging using embedded electronic components and substrate technologies
- Importance of technical power and business efficiency
After, a panel of engineers will discuss the importance of these insights where participants can engage and ask questions.
