Renewable energy is the gateway to a cleaner future, and solar power is leading the charge. Engineers who design solar inverters face the multidimensional challenge of making sure solar power will continue to meet growing demand for clean energy. This webinar explores many facets of this challenge by comparing the latest solutions' efficiency, weight, and cost, and demonstrating how flying capacitor topologies present unique opportunities for optimizing systems.

Vincotech's latest generation of power modules for the solar market is underpinned by new design concepts tailored to meet the key requirements of high efficiency, maximum power density, low weight, and great reliability. The company's engineers chose the innovative topologies and latest semiconductors best suited to benefit the overall system. This webinar dives deep to analyze the power conversion steps in an inverter, and show where and how Vincotech's latest modules address these design requirements.

Performance and cost comparisons underscore that flying capacitor topologies in the booster and inverter greatly improve efficiency, cut module and system costs, and reduce weight in the inductor and heat sink. With these new topologies, designers of next-generation PV inverter systems are able to meet the four critical design requirements of high efficiency, maximum power density, low weight, and great reliability.
