Power Electronics is the study of switching electronic circuits in order to control the flow of electrical energy. Power Electronics is the technology behind switching power supplies, power converters, power inverters, motor drives, and motor soft starters.

Some discrete components used in power electronics

Diodes

Schottky Diodes

Power Bipolar Junction Transistors

MOSFETs
Thyristors:

Silicon Controlled Rectifier (SCR)

Gate Turn-Off Thyristors

Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistors (IGBT)

Gate-Commutated Thyristors

Power Electronic Converters

AC-to-DC Converter (Rectifiers)

DC-to-AC Converter (Inverter)
