On behalf of the workshop organizers, I would like to thank you for attending and participating in the High-Megawatt Converter Workshop held at NIST on January 24, 2007. This website contains the viewgraphs presented by each speaker as well as the workshop proceedings summary prepared by Ron Wolk.
For convenience, you may download the full collection of presentations here. This "Indexed Proceedings" document is best viewed with a recent version of Acrobat Reader* so that the links are opened in a separate window. The multiple window format is controlled using the "Windows" pull down menu on the Acrobat Reader Toolbar.
The High-Megawatt Converter Workshop has been very beneficial to the ongoing interagency effort between NIST and the DOE Office of Clean Energy Systems to identify technologies requiring development to meet the power converter cost and performance goals for the DOE SECA and FutureGen near zero-emission fuel cell power plant programs. Based upon the consensus of the workshop attendees, an industry-led high-megawatt power converter roadmapping effort is being planned, and an interagency working group is being formed to coordinate Federal programs in the high-megawatt area.
