Inverter reliability drives project life cycle costs and plant performance. This workshop focused on current reliability issues and developed a draft roadmap to define the gaps and the path forward for inverter reliability. Topics of discussion included O&M and system impacts, component reliability, thermal management, module-scale conversion and developing standards for next generation technologies. Information was conveyed through case studies and breakout session ideation.
