How can the inverter manage high-temperature conditions effectively

As the scorching summer approaches, it’s common for users to assume that the intense sunlight will lead to higher power generation in photovoltaic power stations. However, the reality is more nuanced. The power output of a photovoltaic system depends on various factors, with irradiance and ambient temperature being among the most crucial. While summer brings …

New MPPT technique based on improved snake algorithm

A group of researchers from Lanzhou Jiaotong University in China has developed a maximum power point tracking (MPPT) technique based on an improved snake optimizer (ISO) algorithm. The ISO is a swarm-intelligence-based optimization algorithm proposed in 2022 to improve the typical shortcomings of the snake algorithm. The latter is inspired by the behavior of snakes …

Inverter undersizing not universally effective to reduce soiling losses

An international research team has investigated the effect of inverter clipping on mitigating soiling losses in PV systems and has found that this strategy may not be as effective as commonly thought. Inverter clipping occurs when a PV system’s DC energy is larger than the maximum input size of the inverter. This saturates the inverter …
