August 3, 2011: Combined Energies LLC receives $199K NYSERDA Award to develop Low Voltage DC to DC Converter
A New York State team of Combined Energies (lead), Advanced Energy Conversion, and Espey Manufacturing & Electronics received a $199k award from NYSERDA to develop a novel, variable low voltage input DC to DC converter (LVC) which would allow dispersed generation technologies, such as fuel cells and battery backup systems to use commercially-available, high-efficiency solar inverters. This LVC will convert the low-voltage output of a fuel cell or battery system to a higher voltage that is compatible with today’s solar inverters. The LVC will allow a new generation of dispersed generation technologies to leverage readily available certified inverters for residential and light commercial grid interconnection without significant efficiency losses or costly development and certification efforts.
