Amid a global scramble to invest in solar power as a viable renewable energy option, pressure is mounting on manufacturers to maximize electricity output with minimum outlay

Mitsubishi Electric Corporation announced it has developed the world's first technology to maximize output power in photovoltaic systems in poor weather conditions.

Mitsubishi said the PV systems' output would be enhanced through the inclusion of a new maximum power-point tracking system in PV inverters.

The technology, which works with a single PV inverter, achieves the maximum power point even when part of a PV array is hidden by shadow or dust, Mitsubishi said.

Solar power as a renewable energy of the future has gained ground worldwide but with its popularity pressure has built on both energy producers and plant manufacturers to extract maximum results at minimum cost.
