About

In Australia, over 1.4 million PV systems have been installed since 2001 with an averaged monthly installing rate of 8353 (data: APVI). Investigation from 8000 solar PV systems shown that approximately 51.8% are performing under estimation (data: Ausgrid).

Our Mission

As can be found from the statistics above, solar PV systems are not always working to their full capacity. Our mission is to provide tools to solar users and engineers to better design and evaluate the performance of a solar system faster and more accurate. Based on a new solar cell and module simulation method, a set of services associated were developed and provided.

 

There are various aspects affecting the output of a PV system. It can also bring down the economic and environmental saving associated. However, modern software only calculates the performance based on isolation and module specifications. With our method, the physical mechanism of  converting solar energy into electricity is more detailed modeled. Parameters like structure of solar cells or the spectral irradiance are all considered carefully.

 

Based on the simulation method, a series of services were provided so that different stockholders in solar industry can take the benefits. It can be used to assist the design of a solar system for developers, analyse its performance in operation for O&M, and predict the power output for utilities. As a SaaS product, it can be easily accessed and integrated into your applications.

Our Value

We developed a new method to model the optical properties of solar devices. The responses of solar devices under illumination are thoughtfully considered in details. When it is used to model the system performance, it takes the simulation into a new level. Not only daily isolation is used, it is expanded in both time and spectrum scale to generate more accurate estimation of power output. Thus we can evaluate your PV system more precisely.

Yang Li

Co-founder

His expertise is on the modelling and simulation of solar cells, modules and systems. He developed the Angular Matrix Framework (AMF) solving the challenge of complete simulation of solar cells with nano and micro-scale structures. His research interest also lies on advanced light management designs of solar cells, and custimising PV products for specific geographical environments based on detailed analysis of the impacts of irradiance, air quality, temperature and surroundings. He received his Bachelor of Engineering degree with first class honor from SPREE, UNSW in 2011. He then started his PhD in photovoltaic engineering at UNSW in 2012 with IPRS Scholarship.
