High Power Semiconductor Switching 2006-01-3033

Historically, electromechanical switching evolved as the standard for switching between and among sources, busses and user loads in high power Electrical Power Distribution Systems. This was the case for essentially all (if not all) complex mobile Electrical Power Distribution Systems, including those employed both in marine and aviation systems. High power, semi-conductor switching has now evolved to the point that it is expected to provide new standards based upon semi-conductor technology. The changes are desirable due to deficiencies in electro-mechanical switching, and improvements offered by semi-conductor technology capability, when considered for high power switching.
