Imec, a research and innovation hub in nanoelectronics, energy and digital technologies and EnergyVille, together with PVcase, a Lithuanian software company have developed a commercial software solution that allows to easily design and accurately predict the energy yield of state-of-the-art photovoltaic (PV) power plants.
DNV GL has developed software for modelling, design and analysis of solar photovoltaic (PV) plants that can accurately and efficiently handle the demands of layouts in increasingly complex terrain. ‘SolarFarmer’ software offers a new and efficient ways to explore and optimize PV project development.
Pellucere Technologies has claimed to have developed the world’s first field-installable, anti-reflective, anti-soiling solar panel coating, which is said to boosts energy generation and reduces cleaning. The MoreSun product includes an Anti-Reflective (AR) & Anti-Soiling (AS) silica shield to any solar array.
By adopting and modifying technology initially developed by NASA, SunSniffer is able to provide STC (Standard Test Conditions) values of each individual module, on a constant basis during pv power plant operation. This unique technology has been developed with the German Aerospace Center, which consists of software managing Big Data with artificial intelligence and high-precision measuring hardware.
Hoymiles 4-in-1 microinverter MI-1200 is said to be the world’s first single-phase microinverter designed for 4 solar panels, with wide DC input operating voltage range (16-60V) & low start-up voltage (22V only). ). It makes significant improvement of cost performance based on existing microinverters and the three-phase wiring is also easy to be configured.
