Energy Conservation and Management with Power Conversion Techiques

Authors(3) :-Kaleeswari M, Madheswaran M, Vijaykumar K

In this paper, we will try to understand the effectiveness and potential of power electronics technology in the field of energy conservation. We will discuss the effect of power electronics control mainly in following four areas: (1) Buildings and lighting (2) power supplies (2) smart electricity grid (4) Industrial drives. European Union is hopeful of reducing their consumption of energy (mainly electricity) as much to 25%. To achieve this aim, we require removing technological challenges in these four areas and encouraging use of efficient and latest technology available in the market. Power electronics plays a key role in area of energy saving and should promote use of information technology techniques in making buildings and electricity grids smart.
