At GE Research we apply state-of-the-art solid state electronics to more effectively and efficiently control and convert electric power. Our power electronics team deploys wideband gap semiconductors such as silicon carbide and gallium nitride, electromagnetic interference (EMI) solutions, solid-state power conversion systems and high-density packaging to develop cost-effective systems with improved power-to-weight ratio and higher conversion efficiencies.
Our solutions are targeted for next generation products in electric flight, high-efficiency energy storage and conversion to complement thermal and renewable power plants, fast-charging for electric vehicles, precision-imaging in magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography systems in healthcare. Our team offers engineering design and development, prototyping, characterizing and testing of components and systems and draws upon a deep intellectual property portfolio that includes new materials for energy-processing, advanced components for better power-conditioning, and novel systems for energy-conversion.
The Power Electronics team collaborates with GE businesses such as Power, Renewables, Aviation, and Healthcare, and with external Government customers such as the US Department of Energy, Advanced Research Projects Agency - Energy (ARPA-E), the US Department of Defense, Naval Air Systems, Air Force Research Laboratories and Office of Naval Research. The team also offers customized commercial services tailored to meet specific customer needs, bringing a combined base of 105 years of experience in developing energy-efficient systems.
