Recent trends and developments

  • Enphase C250 installed its micro inverter at Ontario, Canada in August, 2013 meets the demands of commercial and residential projects with 96.5% efficiency.
  • Enecsys micro inverters has unique energy storage technique which was set up at Washington D.C, USA in September, 2013 that enables the use of thin film capacitors which prevents a rise in internal temperature and performance deterioration.
  • Altera’s Cyclone V FPGA at Utah, USA is a next generation solar inverter which uses a digital signal process and software for automatic error detection correction, system restart during grid failure; Installed in October, 2013.
  • Solar Bridge installed its micro inverters and DC optimizers at Texas, USA in January, 2014. It is the most cost efficient solution for residential and commercial purposes especially for devices which run on Direct current.
  • Microchip deployed its Grid-Connected Solar Micro inverter at Michigan, USA in February 2014. It employs a microcontroller that provides the full digital control of the power conversion as well as all system management functions.
  • ABB installed its Grid-Connected String Type Solar inverter at Tegucigalpa, Honduras in March, 2014 which delivers energy balance to handle a peak power of 146.4 Watts.
  • Dredo installed its Hybrid Solar inverter at Chennai, India in May, 2014. It comes with the choice of charging of batteries by both solar as well as mains utility (Hybrid Version), with automatic change over from mains to battery and from battery to mains like a regular inverter.
  • The AEconversion’s micro inverter INV500-90 installed at Bielefeld, Germany in July, 2014 can successfully run even during grid failure with interconnection of multiple inverters.
  • Enphase deployed its fifth-generation micro inverter at Las Vegas, USA in October, 2014. It has 97 percent efficiency to adjust itself to any complexity in the grid.
  • SolarCity set up its Smart Solar Inverters at Hawaii and California in December, 2014 can successfully trip off during a grid fault and make sure that a group of solar inverters won’t mistake each other’s power for grid power.
