[Extract] 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 electronics products. Central to this achievement is the use of silicon power devices and pulse width modulation (PWM) techniques in delivering regulated AC and DC power to low voltage loads in devices such as LEDs and computers. These solid state power electronics have provided our society numerous benefits, including high quality power and substantial energy savings, and also represent the indispensible core technology for integrating renewable energies such as wind and solar [4] into our power grid.
