DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/l7mfbc/digital_power) has announced the addition of the "Digital Power 2015 Forecasts" report to their offering.
The report identifies a number of emerging areas of opportunity where digital power management is projected to make inroads and provide control functions preferable to traditional analog power conversion. Among them are Software-Defined Power Architectures (SDPAs), the Smart Grid, Microgrids, Data Centers and the development of 5G Technology. Based on these opportunities, the report has identified the current "best" markets for digital power and presents them in the report.
The report projects the emerging area of SDPAs to be the defining aspect of the second decade of this important area of power electronics technology. SDPAs are projected to be enabled by the continued advancement in digital electronics, as well as by advancements in A/D and D/A conversion, power conversion and power management technologies. The concept will continue to evolve and expand as enabled by future generations of the related technologies.
The emerging smart grid and microgrids are additional areas where digital power technology is projected to play a significant role. Advanced hardware, intelligent inverters, digital controllers, and compatible communications will act as the enabling technology mix to maximize economic and operational benefits of both systems. This includes adding two-way digital communication technology to devices associated with the grid. Each device on the network can be given sensors to gather data plus two-way digital communication between the device in the field and the utility's network operations center.
Another area most likely to benefit from the adoption of digital power management/control are data centers, primarily because of the tremendous amount of electricity they consume. This is an opportunity for digital power as the most recent advances in power supplies designed to improve efficiencies implement digital-control technologies.
