Canadian Solar will introduce their new line of “intelligrated” solar panels at the Solar Power International conference that kicks off today in Dallas. Starting with the CommercialAC three-phase AC version for commercial installations, the new grid-ready solar panels offer inverter integration and performance monitoring. The “intelligrated” design combines Canadian Solar’s ELPS high-efficiency panels with integrated new sequenced inverter technology that simplifies system design, offers module-level control, and eliminates the need for central or string inverter and module or string sizing. The inverter components are built with new “hot spot suppression” technology eliminating the need for diodes, making the integrated inverter design more reliable and rugged than typical microinverters. The “plug-and-play” design simplifies on-the-spot system modification and reduces th...
