Congratulation to Fabian on finishing his PhD!
Fabian has finished his doctoral study on Friday with very good grades! In his work the inductive power transfer was applied in the field of PV in order to develop a completely new and innovative PV system, which does not require a large number of traditional electrical connectors. The direct current of the solar cells is converted into an alternating current using a resonant converter and fed through a primary coil placed inside the PV module, which then induces a voltage to the secondary coil placed outside the PV module. The measured power transmission efficiency over the coils was 97.9% ±0.83% (k=1) and the modelled European efficiency of the whole wireless PV module including power electronics was 94.3%. We wish Fabian all the best in his future career!
