No doubt that power electronics is now considered one of the most vital enabling technologies in electrical engineering. In fact, large part of all electrically powered devices, circuits, or systems has close connection with the field of power electronics. Its scope is broad and covers very wide spectrum, with the paramount among them is its ever-increasing role in integrating renewable energy sources and electric storage to the grid. Power electronics is the “glue” that makes the ushering of a new kind of smart energy technology revolution possible. It is because of the engineering field of power electronics that we are able to encompass the efficient and cost-effective use of electronic components, circuit and control theory, modern analytical tools, and design techniques to make this smart energy revolution possible. This revolution will modernize our electric grid, give birth to massive electric transportation, allow for large solar energy penetration, help solve climate change, and enable the deployment of the highest possible energy efficiency systems. In short, power electronics has emerged as the enabling technology that transformed the field of energy and power engineering from a high-tech frontier to smart-tech frontier. Arriving at today’s remarkable important role of power electronics took more than 100 years of innovation and hard work by many scientists and engineers coupled with strong partnerships between the private sector, professional societies, and governments.
