AUO showcases ACPV technology at PV Expo 2011
Press release; Willie Teng, DIGITIMES [Wednesday 2 March 2011]

AU Optronics (AUO) is showcasing the latest solar modules with its AC photovoltaic (ACPV) technology, which aims to resolve partial shading issues in metropolitan and residential areas. ACPV tracks the maximum power point and maintain its operation at excellent efficiency under any weather or shading conditions. With a micro inverter attached to the PV module, users will not be required to purchase and install a big inverter, and the solar system can be easily expanded, monitored, maintained and set up, the company said.

For safety considerations, the output voltage of an ACPV installation is kept at 240V, only one-third of the traditional PV system output, the company added.

As Japan is surrounded by sea, AUO also introduced the EcoDuo PM 240P00 PV module, a product that has passed salt mist corrosion tests by IEC and CNS, and caters to Japan's island-based environment, according to the company.
