Piccolo-based Solar Explorer Development Kit

Texas Instruments

The Piccolo F28035 based solar explorer kit is intended to give designers the opportunity to evaluate different power stages used in solar applications in a safe, low voltage environment. This kit also offers designers of single panel off-grid applications such as lighting or motor control systems a robust development platform to start from by utilizing the 36VDC intermediate bus. All of the primary application power stages are controlled with a single C2000 MCU, including a single switch boost stage for maximum power point tracking, a SEPIC battery charging stage, and a grid-tie-capable DC/AC inverter stage capable of outputting 24VAC. Integrated USB JTAG emulation eliminates the need for external JTAG development hardware. A built in panel emulation circuit also allows designers to evaluate different shading situations without the need for expensive external hardware. A quickstart graphical user interface is included, as well as fully documented, open source hardware and software libraries.

Power Conditioning (also known as Active Power Filtering) can be implemented on this kit with proper configuration and minimal software modifications.

Features:

  • 20VDC/ 50W Non Isolated Design
  • Built-in panel emulator
