Southwest Solar Enters Accord with Burns + McDonnell Engineering for Solar Research

Southwest Solar Technologies declared that it has entered into an accord with Burns & McDonnell Engineering to conduct research and test a new technology at its research park located in Phoenix, Arizona.

The 18-acre test facility incorporates latest equipment for conducting tests and located at a place near the south of Sky Harbor Airport. The facility also has a concentrating solar dish measuring 75-foot in diameter.

Burns & McDonnell is presently guiding a group effort jointly with Suntech Power, a producer of photovoltaic modules, Abound Solar, a manufacturer of cadmium telluride thin-film photovoltaic modules and Power-One a producer of energy-efficient management and power conversion solutions for renewable energy in erecting a 3.5 kW photovoltaic test module. The test installation comprises three solar panels assembled along with test instruments.

The test panels will be utilized to decide the outcome of various types and levels of cooling. The adjustable test panels will also be utilized to assess the effects of changing tilt angles. During the test procedures both crystalline silicon and thin film solar modules will be used to equate their performance under various ambient conditions. Finally the long term functional statistics on the inverters and the modules will be gathered for further use.
