Welcome To The PECTA Publications Area
Abstract: From cell phones to cars to data centers: The diverse electrical applications that visibly and invisibly shape our everyday life all contain switching elements made of semiconductor materials. These powerful electronic components have huge energy-savings potential that can be realized by using so-called wide-bandgap semiconductors. This is the conclusion of an expert report of the International Energy Agency’s Technology Program 4E, in which Swiss experts are significantly participating. See also the webpage of Swiss
Policy Brief – The Energy Efficiency Potential and Application Readiness of Wide Band Gap Technology
Power electronics condition and control the conversion and flow of electricity, using solid-state electrical devices to handle a wide
PECTA is a collaboration of the governments of Austria, Denmark, Sweden and Switzerland. The PECTA factsheet shares some basic information about PECTA goals and actual running tasks. Currently (January 2021) six tasks are up and running. For more information please download our factsheet.
Technologies, systems and applications incorporating power electronic conversion devices and modules are defining many aspects of our modern society, making possible higher living
PECTA Pre-scoping study – New power electronic materials and devices and its impact on the energy efficiency – Assessment Study for 4E Annex preparation
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. 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
