Microwave ovens are now based on bulky magnetrons that have reached their limits of performance and energy efficiency while occupying a relatively large space. Furthermore, there are currently no energy labels used in the market for these appliances. While current standards provide a helpful comparative test protocol, they do not allow for a full spectrum of efficiency measurements, representative of realistic use scenarios. The ENIAC JU project HEECS is addressing the operational specifications of electronic cooking systems to improve their efficiency and define a complete set of European standards.
