This lecture prepared by Dr. Markus.Makoschitz addresses
- the role of wide bandgap semiconductors for power electronics;
- basic principles of wide bandgap semiconductors but also IGBTs and MOSFETs;
- drivers and challenges regarding power electronics and integration; as well as
- a more global perspective pf the potential of this technology.
Dr. Markus.Makoschitz discussed the latest results of an IEA initiative (International Energy Agency), the IEA 4E PECTA (TCP: Energy-Efficient End-Use Equipment – Power Electronic Conversion Technology Annex).
