TVA Solar Array

Featured Research: Solar Array Power Project

Dr. David Wenzhong Gao, winner of the NSFCareer Award , is pictured below with several students in the assembly and construction of a solar array.· The renewable energy solar power station consists of 240 solar PV panels with a total peak power of 12 Kilowatts. The facility is ideal for students’ field trip and demonstration for practical solar power generation technologies.· Graduate students will use the station for thesis research for renewable energy control and monitoring. This project reflects the current focus of the center on green energy through the study of solar, wind, smart-grids, and cleaner coal power production.
