JOKER Tech is a start-up company from Germany. We are developing the world's smallest micro-inverter to be integrated into photovoltaic (PV) modules. The micro-inverters invert the DC electricity generated by the PV modules into AC electricity. We are using a special high-frequency technology that allows us to miniaturize the inverter and drastically reduce the cost.
A typical residential PV roof-top plant consists of 10-30 PV modules with one inverter each. The inverters constantly generate data that allow to monitor the performance of each individual module.
The data is aggregated and sent to a cloud data base by a communication gateway.
The end user and the installer of the PV plant can access the data on the cloud server with their smart phones and visualize the data in a number of different ways.
It is the scope of this project to develop the software of the monitoring app for Android and iOS, preferably in Flutter.
