Mitsubishi Electric’s focus on progressive research, development and testing over the past 40 years is evident through its technological advancements in high-performance power electronics systems. These include the advanced SVC and STATCOM systems, innovations in converter and valve designs, power semiconductor technology and the use of optimal control techniques. Each of these innovations yields higher operating efficiencies, a more compact size, fewer losses and a greater return on investment.
All Mitsubishi Electric substation products are manufactured at ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 qualified facilities, where engineers develop and design products to suit each unique application. Individual components are manufactured and tested according to global standards and customer specifications. Complete systems are then assembled and tested, assuring precise fit and full operational compliance.
A special quality assurance program, applied for power electronics valves and controllers, exceeds ISO-9001 quality control requirements and other standards. Mitsubishi Electric implements a Zero Defect (ZD) policy with strict guidelines that include:
• Use of rigorously qualified and proven components
• Intensive design reviews supervised by expert personnel
• Implementation of aging tests after full assembly
• Factory tests that exceed the requirements of related standards
