Abstract:

An innovative Reliability-Prediction System funded by DOE for Photovoltaic (PV) Solar Cell Inverters will yield important benefits to the Public. The power conditioning module in a PV system, the inverter, has been identified as the component with the lowest reliability in many studies. This SBIR Program will significantly benefit the DOE, by improving state-of-the-art of degradation diagnostics and reliability prediction methods for field-deployed PV inverters. The public will benefit from the Ridgetop significant contribution towards renewable energy sources supported through Presidential energy initiatives. Ridgetop
