Basics of the Power Electronis Industry is the material you need to learn easily and simply the part of technology and industry basics in order to understand your activity, its supply-chain and its surrounding world. Basics of the Power Electronics Industry is a guide to understand the power electronics world.

It’s dedicated to business development, sale and admin team in power electronics companies. It has been built along series of workshops given to several companies in this field, when they were in search for such a guide. It’s more direct and easy to read than an engineering book, it’s also more business, supply-chain and strategy oriented. But it’s deeper and more technical than University or course introductions you can find for free on the web. It meets all the needs to understand this world when you are new to it, but not too much, which would bury one under technical information.

The report features :
- A global explanation of the role of Power Electronics in our every day life
- A review of electric conversion principles, techniques and most used topologies
- Each main application of power electronics with a simple and comprehensive view of the supply-chain, including the main company names in each industry
- A simple explanation of Power semiconductor principles of operation and manufacturing as well as a small overview of passive components and their role

Buy this report if :
- You want to include it in the « welcome package » of your new employees in the power electronics industry
- You want to learn about power electronics so you can discuss and share more easily with you colleagues from the technical department
- You want to be able to understand what is the subject of several contents from technology side you are working with
- You want to get a clear picture of the Power Electronics Industry
