Abstract

See full text

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.
