Photovoltaic (PV) power generation is the generation of electricity using solar cells that convert light energy into electrical energy. It is also called solar power or PV (photovoltaics). Solar power is generated by using solar panels, which are made up of solar cells laid out in series or parallel.

Solar power can be generated on a small scale, and in some cases, solar panels are attached to road signs and street lights, and used in combination with batteries as a source of electricity for nighttime lighting. Solar power is also attracting attention as a form of renewable energy. Eco-friendly houses combining solar panels and storage batteries are also on the rise.

In addition, in recent years, many mega-solar power plants have been built by installing a large number of solar panels on vacant sites. The electricity produced by solar panels is direct current. Therefore, it needs to be converted to AC so that it can be used in homes and factories. Therefore, inverters are used to convert DC into AC.

When developing inverters for use in solar power generation, it is necessary to use a DC power source of about 300-600 V instead of solar cells. A DC power supply is used on the input side, and an AC electronic load is used on the output side for development and testing.

Matsusada Precision offers a wide range of high-voltage power supplies and regenerative power supplies (bi-directional power supplies) for the development and manufacturing of solar inverters and batteries.
