Toronto, ONT, Canada -
PM & E, Inc. is pleased to announce that it’s wholly owned subsidiary Suncetix Inc. is preparing to file two new additional patents to cover improvements to its modular PV system MPVS 1.
Among the many improvements are:
The approach includes system design to reduce required tracking accuracy, as well as refined mechanical engineering of the tracker. For gen-2 of the product, mechanics will be replaced by cheaper and more reliable optics. The optics costs involve developing techniques for inexpensive, robust fabrication of what may be in some designs sophisticated optical surfaces. Increased system efficiency and productivity decreases the cost as well.
b. SYSTEM-LEVEL DESIGN
New MPVS to be designed to reduce initial cost, with attention given to tolerance chains, automation, scalability, and assembly. The MPVS generation-2, will bring the $/W even lower, increasing productivity and lowering maintenance by applying innovative engineering ideas into practice in the new architecture enhancements and improvements. The MPVS generation-2 will have no moving parts, still benefiting from concentration, tracking and cooling altogether.
Improved efficiency is a direct way to lower the cost of the system (thus $/kWh) and the area required to host the system; the area can have a significant effect for rooftop systems. Together with cost and reliability, efficiency must be addressed at the system level to reduce parasitic losses so that systems can realize its potential efficiencies. Cell performance will be considered in context of real-world operating conditions like spectral variations, flux non-uniformity, high temperature.
Reliability factors specific to MPVS include the high-flux, high-current, high-temperature operating environment encountered by the cells, weathering and other degradation of the optical elements, the bonding of concentrating optics to the solar cell, and the operation of tracker parts. For the reliability of the other system parts, existing silicon-cell based systems are a good platform for reliability field experience
Forward Looking Statements
