1662 WG - Power Electronics Working Group

New concepts and technologies are rapidly emerging in the applications of High Power Electronics in Electrical Power Distribution Systems. As the power of systems increases, lower order effects have substantial amounts of energy and that cannot be ignored. Power Electronics equipment in the power range above 100KW can produce many kilowatts of losses in the form of heat, electro-magnetic interference (EMI), and mechanical vibration. Today’s designer must take into account these interactions, as well as predict many other effects such as: system cost, reliability, environmental effects, health effects, and so on. The IEEE 1662 Working Group has developed IEEE Std 1662-2008 "IEEE Guide for the Design and Application of Power Electronics in Electrical Power Systems on Ships" which identifies preferred parameters, performance characteristics, analytical and test methods for Power Electronics rated above 100KW.
