The role of power electronics is the conversion of one form of electrical energy into another form needed for a specific application as efficiently as possible, as well as the control of the power flow. Thus it is a key technology for growth industries in the areas of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and the automotive sector. Approximately 545 companies and institutes with roughly 110,000 jobs in Bavaria are directly involved in research and development, production, sales, and services in the field of power electronics.
Power electronics is one of 17 high-tech industries supported by the cluster programme of the Bavarian State Government.
