Eine Vorbereitungsstudie zur Beantragung eines neuen 4E Annexes bezüglich Power Electronic Conversion, resp. Power Electronic Technologies (PECTA) soll erstellt werden. Die Studie beinhaltet eine Übersicht zum gegenwärtigen Status von Halbleitern mit grosser Bandlücke und deren Potential in Energiewandlung. Basierend auf dieser Übersicht werden Technologie- und Strategielücken identifiziert und ein Aktionsplan für die nationale und internationale Ebene erstellt.
Short description
(English)
A preparatory study for establishing a framework for preparing a potential new 4E Annex concerning Power Electronic Conversion, resp. Power Electronic Technologies (PECTA) shall be conducted. The study includes an overview on the current status of wide band gap semiconductors and their  potential applications in power conversion. Based on this overview, technology and policy gaps are idrntfied and a suggestion for action on both national and international level is made.

Schlussbericht
(English)

In the beginning of 2017, a new Annex to the IEA 4E TCP (Technology Collaboration Program of Energy Efficient End-Use Equipment) has been planned. The Power Electronic Conversion Technology Annex (PECTA) is designed as a platform to assess the efficiency benefit of using the emerging WBG technology. The overall goal includes collecting and analysing information about the new WBG-based power devices and electronics, coordinating internationally acceptable approaches that promote the WBG-based power electronics and developing greater understanding and action amongst governments.

This report is part of the PECTA preparation and by no means a technical publication. Based on this report the documents for PECTA have been elaborated and submitted to the 4E Executive Committee (ExCo).
