PV Paper Published in IEEE Transactions on Sustainable Energy

Sandians Mathew Lave and Joshua Stein ( both in the Photovoltaics and Distributed Systems Dept.) along with Jan Kleissl (University of California–San Diego) published “A Wavelet-Based Variability Model (WVM) for Solar PV Power Plants” in the April 2013 IEEE Transactions issue. (Matthew Lave was a Sandia student intern when this work was being done and […]

ECIS-Princeton Power Systems, Inc.: Demand Response Inverter

Solar energy is both predictable—the sun rises and sets everyday—and intermittent—a passing cloud can reduce a 1 MW photovoltaic (PV) array from 100% of its power generating capacity to 10% in a matter of seconds. This intermittency limits this renewable-energy (RE) source and how much of it is integrated into today’s electricity grid. To alleviate […]
