Technology # 13-36 A Power Electronics Converter System Conventional power electronics converter (PEI) equipment is bulky, heavyweight, and requires regular maintenance, particularly because of the electrolytic capacitor that is used in such systems. These characteristics mean that the conventional PEI‚ are not well suited for many applications where compactness, light weight and excellent reliability are required. In ship design, a compact lightweight PEI that can be located on the deck of the ship is desirable, in aircraft systems, a light weight PEI is always required. Oil and gas well drilling platforms offshore, floating offshore wind farms, and future undersea drilling stations would greatly benefit from the advantages of an improved PEI design.
