Dr. Manjunath Matam
University of Central Florida, Cocoa, USA
I graduated from NIT Goa, India in 2018. My Ph.D. thesis resulted in developing new strategies to improve the solar PV plant system's output power and energy under normal and partial shade conditions. Presently I am a Postdoc at the University of Central Florida, working at Florida Solar Energy Center, Cocoa, FL, USA. Currently, I am part of the DOE-funded project investigating and studying the high-resolution monitoring (HRM) impact on detecting the faults (Soiling, Shade, Cracks, Interconnect failures) in the solar PV plant at the earliest. Collecting, analyzing, and investigating the module and string I-V curves is a main part of the HRM system.
