Very high-end or high-level workstations and servers take in the data storing systems with the help of a Redundant Array of Independent Disks (RAID) array, it is known for delivering a combination of better performance and fault-tolerance. A solar production company from “sunny” Minnesota, Ten K Solar, took inspiration from RAID makers’ strategies and applied the basic application of RAID principles to solar designs. Ten K holds a high collar record with installation of around six hundred RAIS (Redundant Array of Integrated Solar) systems all over the globe.
RAIS has installed Ten K Solar’s panels along with proprietary Module integrated Electronics. The panels are very intelligent and known for performing Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) on an individual basis. This assured the maximum efficiency of every single panel while the irradiance levels are as low as 100 watts per square meter on a cloudy day and 1000 watts per square meter on a sunny day. What makes it unique from the customary panels is the fashion in which its cells are wired. All entities are lined up in a series. The Ten K module employs an interconnection technique that permits overlooking of any cell that is not performing well or is wears off excessively.

The traditional PV systems come installed with two prime configurations: string inverters and the microinverters. The differentiation takes place on the basis of inverter type used by the system. The array employing string inverters will configure the PV panels in form of series for generation of extremely high DC voltage with a probable range of 600-1000 volts. This sends the voltage to a central “string” inverter. The microinverter system, on the other hand, has a mini inverter over every single panel along with the outputs wired in parallel, the resulting voltage, thus, never sticks to the grid-level. Every single one of these has its own pros and cons.
