3 Contd. Emphasis of applications of Power Electronics in  the area of Safety, Conservation, Power Quality and Renewable Sources Practical possible use of PE at  home Trends of Power Electronics NaMPET : GOI Mission

4 Power Electronics Power Electronics is the electronics applied to conversion and control of electrical power. Range of Power Scale Milliwatts(mW) Megawatts(MW) Gigawatts(GW) The primary task of Power Electronics is to process and control flow of electrical energy by supplying voltages and currents in a form that is optimally suited for user loads

5 Power Semiconductor Devices
Power Diode Uni-polar, uncontrolled, switching device used in applications such as rectification and circuit directional current control.

6 SCR: Silicon Controlled Rectifier

7 SCR: Silicon Controlled Rectifier
This semi-controlled device turns on when a gate pulse is present and the anode is positive compared to the cathode. When a gate pulse is present, the device operates like a standard diode. When the anode is negative compared to the cathode, the device turns off and blocks positive or negative voltages present. The gate voltage does not allow the device to turn off

8 Gate Turn Off Thyristor
The GTO, unlike an SCR, can be turned on and off with a gate pulse. One issue with the device is that turn off gate voltages are usually larger and require more current than turn on levels. These devices, because of developments in IGCT technology are not very popular in the power electronics realm. They are considered controlled, uni-polar and bi-polar voltage blocking

9 TRIAC The TRIAC is a device that is essentially an integrated pair of SCR connected in inverse-parallel on the same chip.[

34 NaMPET: National Mission on Power Electronics Technology
NaMPET is a national mission programme launched in November 2004 by the Department of Information Technology(DIT) under Ministry of Communications & Information Technology, Government of India. This five year programme is implemented through the Nodal Centre at the Centre for Development of Advanced Computing, Thiruvananthapuram. Premier Academic Institutions in the country, Manufacturing Industries and User Industries of Power Electronics Systems participate in this programme. A National Steering Committee comprising of eminent experts from different agencies and institutions in India guides the activities of NaMPET.

35 NaMPET: Vision To provide the country with capability to become a dominant player in Power Electronics Technology at the international level. This is a National level R&D Programme facilitating Research, Development, Deployment and Commercialization of Power Electronics Technology by enhancing the indigenous R&D expertise and infrastructure in the country with active participation from academic institutions and industries.

36 NaMPET: Focus Areas  Power Quality Improvement / Smart power for Digital Economy. Electric traction / Electric & Hybrid Electric Vehicles / Automotive Electronics. Distributed power generation / Renewable energy and Micro generator control. Advanced Magnetics / Energy Storage Systems. New topologies for Converter / Inverter applications. New generation sensors for PE applications. Modeling / Simulation packages. Standard PE module with the state of the art developments

37 Conclusions The main contributions of the Power Electronics and FRIENDS Devices for Safety, conservation and improving the power quality can be summarized as follows: Protection both appliance and life against Fault and unhealthy conditions of Electrical Energy System Mitigation of voltage sags and swells Power supply of different reliability

38 Conclusions contd. Interface to dispersed generation systems
Flexibility in Configuration of the System Load Leveling and Energy Conservation NaMPET: Vision
