New TI Chips to Boost Solar Inverter Performance

[Inside Greentech] Texas Instruments announced the industry’s first floating point digital signal controllers (DSCs) — devices which it says should boost the performance of solar power inverters. The new TMS320F2833x chips provide 300 million floating point instructions per second (MFLOPS) performance at 150 MHz. The performance boost allows solar power inverters to more efficiently convert energy from photovoltaic (PV) panels, the company claims. The world’s leading solar inverter manufacturers, such as SMA, Xantrex and Fronius, use TI DSCs to maximize their systems to peak efficiency through Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) algorithms and dynamic algorithm adjustments during various load conditions, including cloudy and low light days.
