Addressing the next generation solar inverter designs

Power Modules for increased efficiency, higher switching frequency, higher input voltages, and lower cost

Unterhaching, Germany, 24th October 2013. – As the solar market matures, electronic power designers are faced with new challenges in inverter designs. The older less efficient two level designs will simply not meet next generation requirements, nor compete successfully in the marketplace. Increasing the efficiency and using a higher switching frequency is becoming the norm. To add to the complexity, customers are requesting a higher DC input voltage to the inverter. Each of these factors must be carefully balanced to provide the best cost-to-performance ratio to meet tomorrow’s challenge of next generation solar inverters, while keeping costs in check..
