POWER OPTIMIZER: Smart Module Technology

Solar power technology isn’t a new discovery; in fact, it was discovered way back in 1800 when Alexandre-Edmond Becquerel—a nineteen-year old French scientist—was experimenting with an electrolytic cell composed of two metal electrodes. He was surprised as he discovered that the materials would emit energy when exposed to light. That was when PV effect came […]

Maxim replaces protection diodes with new cell-string optimizer technology

New cell-string optimizer technology from Maxim Integrated Products allows photovoltaic (PV) panels to harvest significantly more energy and simplifies design complexity for solar installation projects. Maxim’s cell-string optimizers are highly integrated DC-DC converters that replace the bypass diode and perform maximum power point tracking (MPPT) deep inside the PV module. By replacing each diode with […]
