According to Marvin Hamon, EE, the other instructor of AET 230
"Large inverters over 100kW almost never work out of the box & you need a factory representative to make them work."
AC modules: they are a thing of the future. We have not seen one yet.
An Enphase inverter is not factory wired to a module.
Enphase is a microinverter and there is a lot of interest, especialy from high-tech consumers.
Enphase has said that they will come to our class for a talk. You can see their product at www.enphaseenergy.com.
Remember, next week is spring break, so don't come to class.
In 2 weeks, the subjects we will cover are system sizing & mechanical integration, which you can read about in chapters 9 & 10 of the book Photovoltaic Systems. We will have a presentation by Brian Swanson of Fidelity Roof Company.
