A new circuit architecture developed by Texzon was recently granted a patent by the US Patent and Trademark Office, according to a their press release.
The RPP (Ring Power Processor) is a new circuit architecture which can be configured to provide several different services for microgrids and eventually macrogrids. Among these are energy storage, modular and scalable DC-AC conversion, power factor control, and source-load isolation. It will impact the Flexible AC Transmission System (FACTS) initiative.
"The RPP will be a critical component for increasing the amount of green energy on our electricity grids," said Steve Wilson, Texzon CEO. "Dr. Corum has pioneered a remarkable technology."
This new architecture will allow for an expansion of a litany of green technologies.
This new architecture allows for almost unlimited expandability for solar cell/inverter, battery/inverter or fuel cell/inverter storage systems with its active component implementation. One of the most notable benefits of the RPP is in the conversion of variable AC or DC power sources (solar, wind, battery and fuel cell) into constant voltage and frequency AC. It allows for almost unlimited expansion through the addition of more same-size inverters. In large inverter systems, the simplification of switchgear required for installation would greatly lower operating and maintenance costs.
