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).
