At the meeting, the mission statement, goals and basic structure of the association were established. Matthew Holzmann was confirmed as President and Jasbir Bath as Vice President of the association. Additional Vice Presidents and Directors of SEMA will be confirmed shortly for the first year and elections will be held for the following years. Additionally, committee members were confirmed for the Formation and Steering Committee, Technical Committee and Web Site Development Committee.

SEMA is an international, member-driven organization that will create a forum for like-minded professionals to network, debate and exchange technical information for the advancement of solar technology. The association will identify gaps in standards and host an annual conference as well as chapter-based meetings and seminars.

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.
