Solar energy is under push to reach “grid parity” without additional subsidies and favorable policies. While cost and reliability are major concerns for both photovoltaic (PV) panels and PV inverters, comparable or exceeded grid functions and power quality can further help solar power become competitive to conventional generation technologies in the wholesale electricity market. This paper gives an overview of future development trends of PV inverters and proposes new requirements for next… CONTINUE READING
