Provided are multi-module inverters and/or converters for connecting to a set of building integrable photovoltaic (BIPV) modules that are interconnected in series and arranged into photovoltaic arrays on building structures. Outputs from multiple multi-module inverters and/or converters in one array may be combined using parallel connections and then connected to an electrical grid, standalone electrical network, or central inverter. Each set is connected to a different multi-module inverter and/or converter and may have a variable number of BIPV modules. A multi-module inverter and/or converter may be positioned within or integrated into one of the BIPV modules or attached to a building structure supporting the array. In certain embodiments, a multi-module inverter and/or converter is installed in a ventilation channel on the back side of a module. A multi-module inverter and/or converter may be also integrated into an electrical routing structure connected to one of the BIPV modules.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
