    Nuotio, Mika ; Kernahan, Kent

    Due to their exposure to extreme environments, it is expected that parts or all of a solar power system will experience degradation in performance. The degradation may be due to temporary environmental factors, such as cloud cover; damage or localized soiling; a general dirty condition; or ageing of the components. A method is disclosed wherein a remote system may detect degraded performance and determine the cause, thereby enabling a decision as to the appropriate corrective action to be taken, if any. </p>

  2. Kernahan, Kent ,  "HIGH VOLTAGE ARRAY CONVERTER" , Patent No. 8093754 More
    Kernahan, Kent

    Methods for compensating for reduced power output in stages of electrical power may be implemented within a direct current to pulse amplitude modulated ("PAM") current converter, denominated a "PAMCC", is connected to an individual source of direct current. The PAMCC receives direct current and provides pulse amplitude modulated current at its output. An array of PAMCCs constructed in accordance with the present invention form a distributed multiphase inverter whose combined output is the demodulated sum of the current pulse amplitude modulated by each PAMCC. The array is configured as a series of stages, wherein the power sources within each stage are in parallel. In some embodiments two or more stages are connected in series. In some embodiments tow or more stages are connected in a "Y" configuration. In some embodiments a weak power source is compensated for by adjusting the voltage or the current of the weak power source. </p>

  3. Kernahan, Kent ,  "DETECTION AND PREVENTION OF HOT SPOTS IN A SOLAR PANEL" , Patent No. 8050804 More
    Kernahan, Kent

    An electronic module compares the output voltage of a solar panel to an expected value and controls the power demand from the solar panel such that the output voltage does not vary from the expected value by more than a predetermined value. The predetermined value may be determined by correcting a room temperature value for the temperature dependence of the photodiodes comprising the solar panel and manufacturing tolerance. </p>
