May 2010 ― Christopher Associates Inc. announces that a new professional association serving engineers and management in the photovoltaic cell and module manufacturing industries has been proposed. A formation meeting will be held on June 10, 2010 from 5:30-7 p.m. at Flextronics Corporation in Milpitas, CA.


Matthew Holzmann, president of Christopher Associates Inc., said, "The photovoltaic industry is moving fast. We are all pushing hard. There are few professional resources out there for the engineering and manufacturing community on an individual basis. We have tradeshows and some standards work being done, but engineering education, technology benchmarking and other professional issues and opportunities must be addressed as well. Hopefully we can begin a dialog to meet this need."

In order to facilitate the discussion, Flextronics Corporation has offered to host a formational meeting for such an organization. The meeting is open to all, and will be held at:
Flextronics Corporation
Building #1
Milpitas Conference Room
637 Gibraltar Court
Milpitas, CA 95035

SolarEdge Technologies - Solar Inverters, Power Optimizers and PV Monitoring

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power conversion architecture to achieve superior solar power harvesting and best-in-class reliability. The fixed-voltage technology ensures the solar inverter is always working at its optimal input voltage over a wider range of string lengths and regardless of environmental conditions. A proprietary data monitoring receiver has been integrated into the inverter and aggregates the power optimizer performance data from each PV module. This data can be transmitted to the web and accessed via the SolarEdge Monitoring Portal for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting of PV systems.
