Recent advances in power electronics have significantly promoted the development of more electric aircraft (MEA). This paper presents a review of the power electronic applications in MEA that were presented in the literature in the past decade, ranging from the component level such as power semiconductor devices and solid-state circuit breakers, to various power converter topologies, high-voltage AC (HVAC) and high-voltage DC (HVDC) power system architectures for MEA. Opportunities and challenges of using emerging power semiconductor devices, power converter topologies and various system architectures are discussed.
