Is digital power moving forward?

It is now several years since commercial products with 'added digital performance' aiming to revolutionise the power industry have been around in the marketplace. At a time when energy efficiency and power consumption are becoming more strategic than ever, the debate around how "digital power" will change the face of the world has never been so intense. Energised by the high marketing buzz surrounding 'the new power revolution', thousand of papers have often strongly expressed the details and benefits of implementing such technology. However, a certain market perception gives the feeling that behind the noise generated by the media, digital power seems not to have moved as fast as expected. Wrong perception or reality?
