Samenvatting:
In the PV2GO project a new AC-module inverter is developed, taking into account all relevant aspects from a European market point of view (standards, market, application, R&D goals). Project goal is to achieve turnkey system costs of 3 ?/Wp for a modular plug-and-play AC-module PV system. The R&D goal is to develop an advanced DC-control system consisting of a state-of-the-art programmable digital device and an ASIC for the AC-control of the inverter. This development took place within the framework of the optimal topology concept and design, taking into account suitable production technology and packaging for large-scale production. In the PV2GO project the new AC-modules were tested in a number of test sites in various parts of Europe and the reliability was assessed through Highly Accelerated Stress Tests. Further an optimisation study of a manufacturing process for the new generation of AC-modules for high volume output was carried out. Another task was the pre-certification procedure to assure compliance with the European guidelines and standards.
