  • Evaporators technology for photovoltaic & Microelectronics industries

    The manufacturing process of the cells that make up the photovoltaic systems and the printed circuits require water in quantity and high quality. This water has to be managed wisely so as not to affect the productivity and the expenses of the plant.

  • Metrology for the photovoltaics industry

    Quality control to maximize efficiency is critical in the competitive photovoltaic industry. For some time solar texture has been thought to qualitatively affect solar cell efficiency. However, through large-area, 3D measurements and areal feature parameters, quantitative correlation of texture to efficiency has only recently been obtained. We now know that ISO 3D surface parameters linearly correlate with solar cell efficiency.

  • Smoke generator device for wind tunnel studies

    For producing a point source of smoke in a wind tunnel environment, Concept have the Aerotech smoke system, with a heated tip on the end of a thin wand. For seeding a wind tunnel for LDA/PVA type work the ViCount 1300 system is normally supplied. This can produce either water or oil based smoke with minor re-programming, so it is a very adaptable solution. The ViCount is such a versatile machine, that its capable of everything from seeding the world’s largest wind tunnel (NASA AMES) through to producing fine smoke rakes in educational wind tunnels.

  • Industrial solutions for remote monitoring

    Supervision and maintenance on those locations without internet wired connection requires high personnel cost and also means a slow reaction in case of malfunction events and alarms. For companies with a big amount of remote location centers (such as repeaters of operators and telephone companies, production and distribution centers for energy manufacturers or photovoltaic/eolic plants), maintenance and supervision labors involve disproportionately high costs.

  • Energy Storage

    The K&S Engineering company as a technology 'know-how' supplier has prepared algorithms for optimizing energy storage systems and developed a new simulation tool for it. Using this special simulation software, not only the major yield forecasts for the investors are done in detail, but it is also possible for the applied control algorithms to perform optimizations. With this, K&S offers a consultancy service combining photovoltaic-energy-storage-system design and the perfectly match of the upcoming control algorithms to be applied. As a supplementary service for investors and banks, K&S performs a technology and supplier evaluation in an technical risk assessment regarding the project. A first project with >30 MWp installed capacity in Japan with special requirements of the energy supplier and a nearly 20 MW battery power has already successfully been modeled by the K&S experts.

  • Supervision of Photovoltaic Power Plants in Japan

    The team of K&S technical experts perform independent technical inspections of the photovoltaic system and clarifies technical issues. The advisory service begins even before the actual construction of the photovoltaic power plant - in the design and contract review. It is ensured that all the requirements of the building permit of the relevant Japanese authorities are fulfilled and the contract is aligned with the system. Based on the continuous construction and factory acceptance tests of components, possible quality defects from the start can be reduced to an absolute minimum. With the local networks of the Japanese technology institutions such as New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO), Japan Electrical Safety & Environment Technology Laboratories (JET), Japan Photovoltaic Energy Association (JPEA) and other leading technology institutions, K&S combines a comprehensive local technical advisory service in Japan.

  • Waste gas & wastewater treatment for the solar industry

    Generating solar energy is considered `green technology`, even though the production of solar cells based on silicon predominantly uses process stages that have been common practice in the semiconductor industry for many years. As in the semiconductor industry the production of solar cells employs dangerous and environmentally harmful substances, which require abatement according to legal provisions. The production of photovoltaic cells therefore is subject to strict requirements for treatment of waste gases and wastewater. Solutions need to be easy and cost-effective. The contaminated wastewaters and waste gases should, under no circumstances, lower performance, endanger the health and safety of humans, or otherwise negatively affect the availability of production facilities. The safety of the production line must be guaranteed at every step and in every operating situation.

    Chemical Analyzing in Photovoltaics for the Solar Power Industry

    In the earlier days, the chemistry involved in solar cell manufacturing was relatively simple, using commodity chemicals. With cell efficiencies continuously on the rise and new cell concepts slowly being introduced with increased speed of processing, precise chemical concentration control is becoming crucial to obtain consistency and more cost-effective manufacturing of solar panels. This is possible by monitoring on-line the etching bath composition, a small but genuine step forward in your competitive advantage.
