High Performance Power Electronics Systems for PV Solar Applications

Thursday, December 15, 2011 1:00pm - 1:30pm EST  
Host: Definitive Solar Institute
By: David Reifsnyder, VP, U.S. Operations, Hybridyne Power Electronics, Inc.

Join us for a free webinar that explains the benefits of an advanced inverter technology and specifically how it is capable of harvesting more energy from PV solar power generation systems. Providing insight into the factors that affect electrical yield, such as insolation and illumination (the effect of shading), and the inverter design and operating parameters that affect yield, the presentation points to “best practice” approaches that can improve electrical – and financial - yield by as much as 30%.

In addition, the importance of evaluating issues such as TCO (total cost of ownership), LCOE (Levelized Cost of Energy) and Efficacy vs. Efficiency are explained in the context of solar system performance and grid parity.
