Power Conversion Industry

In electrical engineering, power engineering, and the electric power industry, power conversion is converting electric energy from one form to another such as converting between AC and DC, or changing the voltage and/or frequency.  A power converter is an electrical or electromechanical device for converting electrical energy.  It can be a simple transformer that changes the voltage of AC power or a far more complex system that incorporates redundancy and voltage regulation.

Power conversion applications, commonly found in the marine, industrial, and energy sectors, utilize a wide variety of electronic components.  This industry often has needs for components in short supply (shortages or allocations) as well as end-of-life components.

When your first-line suppliers cannot source those hard-to-find components, VRG Components® can help.   We source hard-to-find components that are in short supply (shortages or allocations) or those with long lead times.  We fill these supply chain gaps quickly and efficiently.  Thanks to our carefully cultivated global network of suppliers we have access to a wide range of electronic components for power conversion.
