Abstract: Power electronics are used anywhere where there is a need to process electrical energy. It could be for changing currents, voltages and/or frequency. Power electronics is different from general electronics in a sense that it deals with processing energy instead of information. The most important metric in power electronics is efficiency. The use of power electronics is growing rapidly in the area of renewable power generation. This change is because of increasing supply and demand gap of power, prospect of cost savings from electric bills, scarcity of fossil fuels, excess CO2 emissions, unavailability of capital to build traditional power plants are few of the challenges that power electronics is helping to solve. This paper discusses the basic power electronic devices, their usage and commercial power electronic systems being used in renewable PV energy generation and consumption.
