Power electronics encompasses the conversion and control of electric power. It combines the processing of high voltages and currents for power generation and distribution together with distortionless production, transmission and reception of data and signals.
Electronics and control instrumentation enable analysis, measurement and control of industrial process parameters, such as temperature, pressure, humidity and flow, for efficient and safe operations at power facilities.

Application of control instrumentation
Instrumentation plays an essential role in both collecting information from the field and changing field variables, which are a significant part of control loops. Advanced electronics and control instrumentation will maximise productivity, stability, safety and reliability of operations at facilities.
Control instrumentation includes devices such as valves, circuit breakers and solenoids, which allow changing of field process variables and provide remote or automated control capabilities.
Automation of various control systems that are used for operating equipment and processes in facilities, boilers and other applications has reduced human intervention.
