Sven Klaka
Dedicated to power semiconductors for more or less 30 years, I have spent the last two decades with ABB Semiconductors in a range of positions. Currently, I am head of the Product Management & Application Engineering Department. What I like about power semiconductors is they are enablers: Regenerative energy, electric vehicles, high-speed trains – all of these technologies would be unthinkable without power semiconductors. Very often at ABB we are part of something new, and I like being able to contribute to the beginning of something new.

Thyristors – The heart of HVDC

Rather than being an endangered species, these semiconductor devices demonstrate how continual development can meet modern market needs.
