Clean Power Generation Makes for a Green Environment

August 05, 2013 // By Bruce Haug, Linear Technology Corp.
The cost of electricity around the world has been rising steadily over the past 40 years. The use of solar panels to generate clean energy can reduce and possibly eliminate consumer dependency on utility company power. The relative size and number of panels result in a wide variation of voltage and power availability. This wide variation can cause the need for multiple power stages to achieve the desired output voltage and maximum power levels. Fortunately, the LT8705 with its wide input voltage range and four regulation loops can reduce the number of power stages required offering a highly efficient simplified solution.
