Abstract
POWER CONDITIONERS CURRENTLY IN USE IN PHOTOVOLTAIC COGENERATION INSTALLATIONS DO NOT USE LARGE SCALE INTEGRATION TECHNOLOGY. IT IS THE OBJECTIVE IN PHASE I TO RESEARCH THE FEASIBILITY OF IMPROVING THE ACCURACY, SPEED OF RESPONSE, AND THE RELIABILITY OF A POWER CONDITIONER BY UTILIZING A COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE ASIC. MANUFACTURING COSTS WILL BE SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCED WITH THE ASIC IMPLEMENTED SAMPLE DATA CONTROL SYSTEM. DETAILED DESIGN OF THE SOFTWARE TO FABRICATE AN ASIC WILL BE THE END PRODUCT OF THE PROJECT, AND THIS WILL BE SUPPORTED WITH A COMPUTER SIMULATION TO PROVE SUITABILITY OF THE DESIGN.
