CHEETAH knowledge Exchange Portal is an integral part of CHEETAH project web site powered and developed by DTE unit of ENEA ©2014 - 2018 with support of all CHEETAH Partners. Starting from early 2018, CHEETAH KEP moved its first steps to became EERA Knowledge Exchange Platform for PV Technology (KEPT-PV). A new name for the previous platform characterizing our will to serve better and more efficiently in Knowledge Exchange a wider European and International PV RTD community.

Short Bio

More than 16 years of experience in the field of test and measurement of Photovoltaic modules. First two years of activity at Ciemat PV Laboratory were focused on PV plant evaluation and engineering and quality assessment of solar modules. Most of these projects corresponded to contracts with private PV companies: plant owners, designers, developers and module manufacturers and distributors. During this period she also participated in several R&D collaborative projects with public national and European funds all of them aimed to eliminate technical barriers that impede wide diffusion of this technology.
The most relevant work developed at CENER is related to the Solar Module Testing Laboratory from its very beginnings with the elaboration of the project viability (lay-out, facilities, equipment and other resources definition) to the final implementation of the laboratory (technical specifications of the equipments, purchase conditions, definition of installation requirements and put in operation). The laboratory reached its full capacity during the big boom in the solar PV market what enabled the completion of multitude commercial projects. Experience gained at that stage has provided in deep knowledge of the majority of PV module technologies and invaluable comprehension about its particular weakness and expected failure modes. The activity for the industry has been always coordinated with scientific investigation through the completion of several researching projects.
Author of numerous publications at international conferences and specialized journals. Member of the TC82, the technical committee of IEC for the Standardization of PV Systems and components. Proposed as referee for the evaluation of projects in the European Commission. Member of the Task 15 BIPV of the International Energy Agency for PV Systems.
