Synergies between businesses and technologies can bring about a sustainable society to the benefit of all. As a comprehensive electric and electronics manufacturer with operations the world over, Mitsubishi Electric is in a unique position to create eco changes for society by harnessing its strengths in everything from satellites, highly efficient power systems and the use of new energy resources, to water treatment, and energy conservation in the rail and automobile transportation infrastructure.
Greenhouse gases Observing SATellite-2 (GOSAT-2)
GOSAT-2 is a satellite dedicated to the observation of the concentration distribution of greenhouse gases (carbon dioxide, methane, etc.), the major cause of global warming, from outer space.
Optical Communication Systems
Enhanced optical communication technologies reduce power consumption while supporting convenient optical broadband networks.
Cutting-edge, large-capacity turbine generators contribute to more efficient energy generation, improved cost efficiency and higher reliability.
Photovoltaic power generation systems generate clean energy efficiently for use in homes, buildings, factories, schools and other facilities.
Cubicle-type Gas Insulated Switchgear
Dry air is used as the insulation medium for instantly breaking high-voltage fault currents, such as during a short-circuit, thereby realizing greater safety and environmental protection.
These energy saving key devices are used for power conversion and motor control in items such as home appliances, railcars, and hybrid and electric vehicles.
Mitsubishi Electric continues to develop additional next-generation power devices using SiC, a compound that reduces energy loss even further.
SiC-based Railcar Inverter
The use of large-capacity SiC power modules reduces total power consumption of the entire railcar by 30% compared to a conventional system.
Train Integrated Management System (TIMS)
Through integrated control of train operations such as acceleration and braking, this system reduces power consumption and contributes to lower railcar weight.
IPUs* for Hybrid Vehicles
These highly efficient, compact and lightweight inverters for hybrid vehicles contribute to better fuel efficiency and reduced emissions.
*IPU: Integrated Power-drive Unit
Motor Controllers for Electric Power Steering
Motor controllers assist driver steering in line with driving conditions to contribute to better fuel efficiency and lower CO2 emissions.
