Reconfigurable power management using novel monolithically integrated CMOS-on-PV switch

Abstract

This paper presents a novel reconfigurable power management architecture for PV modules. This architecture allows for operation or isolation (islanding) of individual or groups of cells. Flexible Voc and Isc combinations may be achieved with switching speeds up to 1MHz. Multiple advantages and functionalities can be achieved, such as lower power losses if… (More)
