PMIwhiteImpact of High Power Electronics

Tuesday, August 27, 2024 - 2:00 PM ET


The plummeting cost of high voltage/high power semiconductors and waveform-sampling microcontrollers is creating a new generation of power-hungry loads with minds of their own.

Increasingly, electrical compatibility between the utility and load is a matter of satisfying an intelligent controller's thresholds rather than the physical needs of a load. With solar and wind growth, this complexity extends even to generation. Challenges from these trends are outlined, along with possibilities for incorporating these trends on the utility side of the meter to address them.
