Jan Willem Fokkink Defends his Bachelor’s Thesis

Yesterday, Jan Willem Fokkink successfully defended his Bachelor’s Thesis at the Hague University of Applied Sciences. He has been working on our string level solar MPPT converter, in particular on the software. This included implementation of maximum power point tracking but also implementation of droop control that allows also for islanding operation and decentralised curtailment in case of overproduction. Further, the handling of abnormal operation conditions and safety aspects where part of his work. Until now operation has been verified with solar simulators, up next is demonstration with real solar panels which we will be performing very soon at the Green Village in Delft.
