Global warming is a critical issue for the survival of all on the earth. The Paris Agreement of United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP21) of 2015 presents a clear road map of replacing fossil fuels with renewable energy resources as the most effective solution of decarbonization. The power conversion technology plays a crucial role in the integration of renewable energy resources into the existing power grid. This presentation will introduce the speaker’s high power converter research in recent years as a part of Taiwan’s development of renewables and smart grid, and how the industry adopts these technologies into their product development.
