How Digital Power Conversion Promises a Greener Future

Digital Power

Being one of the most critical technologies of our times, digital power has an instrumental role in managing the rising complexities in powering modern electronic systems. Digital power conversion modules have emerged as reliable tools for reducing the power consumption of a range of electronic utilities such as data servers, control systems, and wireless base stations.

Naturally-occurring power loss during the conversion stage is one of the biggest factor causing energy inefficiencies around the globe. The need for effective digital power conversion continues to gain traction as power distribution authorities and end-users continue to employ new technologies and techniques for minimize power loss during the conversion phase.

In the foreseeable future, digital power conversion modules will witness steadfast adoption in industrial, residential and commercial settings across the globe. Industries are actively transitioning to the digital domain as an analogue approach is unable to provide efficiency, flexibility and greater control offered by the former. This transition has propelled the emergence of a range solutions which will continue to extend the adoption of digital power conversion modules in the years to come. A research report by Future Market Insights projects that the global market for digital power conversion will witness an impressive growth in the upcoming decade. The study projects that on the account of several factors, the global digital power conversion market will be worth over US$ 62 Bn by the end of 2027. In the near future, this analogue-to-digital power conversion transition is likely to create a greener and more efficient energy environment for the world.

Emergence of Smart Meters

The roll out of smart meters has been picking up speed in developed countries, and consumers are being assured that the transition to smart power conversion meters will deliver greater control over energy usage. Smart meters will enable the companies of tomorrow in achieving their sustainability goals such as monitoring energy demands, facilitating environmentally-responsible power generation, and adjusting the application space of electronic devices. Allowing full visibility on their power usage is the greatest advantage of adopting smart meters for consumers. These meters will ensure that power distribution networks in the future will be greener through optimization of energy management across consumer appliances and industrial machines. Moreover, smart meters are fully compliant towards providing support for conventional technical designs of power conversion modules.

Intelligent Power Conversion

A majority of electrical appliances around the world run on regulated DC supply, with some AC-powered devices making the exception. Intelligent power conversion solutions will continue to support this scenario for the future by using switched mode power supplies, also known as SMPSs. For OEMs, the digital power conversion offered by SMPSs will enable them in furthering their energy efficiency in manufacturing operations. Offering loop adjustment and dynamic control is one of the key features of such intelligent power conversion solutions that will promote their use in tomorrow’s manufacturing sector. Moreover, these solutions deliver effective digital power conversion with operational flexibility across different power levels and by employing predictive algorithms on power control loops.

Migration to Fully-Integrated Solutions

Digital power conversion modules are the key components that will effectuate an integration of the application, distribution and conversion stages. One may not find it reasonable that a single device can take the load of such critical operations, albeit, digital power conversion modules can effectively optimize the energy supply and harmonize the generation and distribution with multi-mode switching supply controllers. The migration to fully-integrated digital power conversion solutions will instrument a power paradigm shift supported by the governments that aim at lowering the impact of power loss on climate and environment. The semiconductor industry will witness the arrival of highly-integrated power conversion devices, making the conversion from analogue to digital simpler.
