The Fraunhofer Center for Sustainable Energy Systems is pleased to announce that it will be hosting a partner and stakeholder meeting for its residential solar "plug-and-play" project team at the Solar Power International conference and trade show (SPI) on Monday, October 21st, 2013.

CSE

9;s "plug-and-play" project is a five-year, $11.7M research effort funded by the US Department of Energy's SunShot Initiative and supported by members of industry, academia, and local government. Its ultimate aim is to develop a range of pre-configured solar PV systems that can be installed and commissioned by a homeowner in one day – all without the need for significant permitting, inspection and interconnection processes. Key project partners include the cities of Boston and Worcester, utility companies National Grid, NorthEast Utilities and Green Mountain Power, Sandia National Laboratories, and various manufacturers.

Flex-Core - Flexible Split-Core Current Transformer

The FCL model split-core current transformers have multiple benefits, including a flexible twisting motion for ease of application. Installing a split-core CT means there is no need to disconnect your primary conductor(s) which reduces downtime. Many customizations are available including extended secondary lead wire lengths, various outputs including 5A, 1A, 1VAC, and 0.333VAC, and custom rubber inserts to help center the CT and maintain accuracy. The FCL models can be used in applications up to 720VAC and have an operating frequency from 50Hz to 400Hz.
