Title: High Power Converters for the Energy Transition: A journey from Past to Present and Beyond
The energy transition to reduce CO2 emissions is changing the power grids landscape. This requires transmission and distribution capacity enhancement, as well as controllability and power quality for increasing renewable production, often at remote locations. Likewise, CO2 reduction drives an increase in electrification at the demand side, for example for the transportation and industrial infrastructure, which puts additional strains on the existing electrical systems. At Hitachi Energy Research we are investigating future power electronics solutions to enable a smarter, stronger, and greener power grids supporting the energy transition. Research and innovation will play a critical role in development and verification of new concepts in this area such as HVDC, MVDC, FACTS and other converter-based solutions.
