The Power Electronic Conversion Technology Annex (PECTA) is one of four Annexes (EDNA, EMSA, SSL and PECTA) within the IEA 4E TCP (Technology Collaboration Program of Energy Efficient End-Use Equipment) and was launched in march 2019. Currently (march 2019), there are 3 governments sponsoring PECTA:
- Austria - Adriana Diaz, firstname.lastname@example.org (Vice-Chair)
- Sweden - Peter Bennich, email@example.com (Chair)
- Switzerland - Roland Brüniger, firstname.lastname@example.org (Chair-Supporter)
Overall Goal of PECTA
The overall goal of PECTAincludes collecting and analysing information about new wide band gap (WBG) based power electronic devices, coordinating internationally acceptable approaches that promote WBG-based power electronics and developing greater understanding and action amongst governments and policy makers.
- Collecting and analysing information on new WBG-based power electronics as energy efficient technology
- Share expertise and pool resources on this energy efficient technology (also including e.g. hosting of open forums and building collaborative networks as well as gathering and exchange information)
- Coordinating internationally acceptable government approaches that promote WBG-based power electronics.
- Developing greater understanding and promote government actions that encourage the use of WBG-based power electronics.
- Accompanying and supportinginternational standardization public organizations (specifically IEC).
