Project description

Frequent power interruptions reduce the cooling possibilities of foods and water supply continuity. Alternative energy can help, but the price of the photovoltaic converters is higher for the moment than the PV panels due to a shorter lifetime. A converter will be developed which aims low losses, by combining cost effective components but which need a different control principle.
