Photovoltaic Technology

   |   By  |  0 Comments

PV technology converts sunlight directly into electricity throughout the day, allowing you to produce your own electricity with no noise, air pollution, or moving parts. The basic building block is the PV cell, which is connected to other cells to create larger units called modules. Typically, modules are attached as panels onto your existing roof or are designed directly into the roof so they act as both a part of the roof or shingles and a solar module at the same time.

A PV system includes a collection of PV modules that is usually connected to the utility grid. Systems must be connected to the utility grid to be eligible for the cash incentive offered by the resident state. The PV modules produce direct current (DC) electricity, which the system then converts to alternating current (AC) electricity so it can be used to power your lights, appliances, and other home electrical needs.

The applications of Solar Power Energy are extremely broad. The Solar Power Energy can be used at home, commercial, farms, schools, hospitals, general manufacturing industry, automotive industry, government buildings, sports events, etc.

Wind Technology

Wind Technology

Wind Technology converts the kinetic energy of the wind into electricity. Given the multidisciplinary nature of wind farm projects, the integration of all components is essential to the success of the project. DSI can design and integrate the wind farm components, including the generator step-up specification into a cost effective solution for your specific project. The DSI team can manage the overall project including: design, schedule, cost evaluation and risk management.

DSI offers an advanced control system to continually adjust the blade pitch angle in the turbine to enable it to achieve optimum rotational speed and maximum lift-to-drag at each wind speed. This “variable speed” operation maximizes the ability of the turbine to remain at the highest level of efficiency resulting in greater annual energy production yield as compared with machines operating at constant speed. Additionally, while constant speed rotors must be designed to deflect high wind gust loads, the variable speed control system enables the loads from the gust to be absorbed and converted to electric power. Generator torque is controlled through the frequency converter. This control strategy allows the turbine rotor to over-speed operation in strong, gusty winds thereby reducing torque loads in the drivetrain. The wind turbine converts the extra energy in wind gust to electric power.

LEED Process & Certification Initiatives

Environmental preservation and improvement has transcended from a grassroots social movement to mainstream America. DSI is working with its clients to transition them into this “greener”, more sustainable environment and to reduce their building’s negative impact on the environment, while helping to improve the bottom line.

Energy saving and efficient design is nothing new for DSI. For over 25 Years, DSI has been designing efficiency into every project. With LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Accredited Professional(s), DSI will measure and document the gains for its client, as well as assisting with the implementation of LEED processes. As members of the USGBC (United States Green Building Council), DSI is working with existing and new clients to improve their bottom line through:

  • Energy Savings
  • Process Improvement
  • Employee Retention
  • Forward Thinking Design

No matter the motivation – social or economic, DSI will work with you in the design, implementation and LEED certification of Green and Sustainable Processes.

“Bottom Line” Results:

  • Increases Good Will and Brand Equity
  • Increases Workforce Productivity
  • Reduces Energy Consumption
  • Increases Property Values
