Research Engineer, SWRES

Designed a microprocessor based PV I-V curve tracer used to measure the output characteristics of photovoltaic solar arrays.

Contributed to the development of large scale PV test methods that have become the standard techniques used by the SWRES in evaluating most large PV systems in the United States.

Was responsible for the test and evaluation of amorphous silicon photovoltaic (PV) modules, development of novel techniques for testing large scale PVsystems, and development of PV system module failure simulation.

Developed a detailed PV module failure simulation that has enabled quantitative analysis of PV system performance with failed modules.

Lead the investigation of a-Si PV technology at the SWRES involving the long term data acquisition and analysis of installed test systems.

Directed the activities of staff and graduate students in SWRES research activities.
