Photovoltaic module with integrated power conversion and interconnection system

Objective

Photovoltaic (PV) modules with integrated inverters have been the topic of intense research so far because of their many advantages. In spite of this breakthrough of this technology has not been achieved so far. The reasons for this are:
- No fully integrated approach with module and inverter manufacturers so far.
- No high volume production of power electronics.
- No application of highly integrated electronics.
- Available power electronic components were not suitable for the high requirements.

The main aim of this project is a significant cost reduction of the electricity generated by grid connected PV systems. The work will mainly focus on the development and demonstration of PV modules with integrated inverters. To make an optimum use of the resources combined in this project other issues of grid connected PV systems will be addressed, too.
