CyboEnergy is Ready to Release CyboInverter, the World's First Solar Power Mini-Inverter at Intersolar NA
RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif., July 2, 2013– CyboEnergy, a subsidiary of CyboSoft, General Cybernation Group Inc., (Rancho Cordova, CA), today announced that it is ready to release CyboInverter, the world's first solar power Mini-Inverter at Intersolar North America in San Francisco on July 9-11, 2013.

CyboInverter is a patent-pending solar power Mini-Inverter possessing the key merits of both central inverters and microinverters. Each CyboInverter's input channel has its own control and maximum power point tracking (MPPT) mechanism based on CyboSoft's Model-Free Adaptive (MFA) control technology so that power production is maximized and the partial shading problem is eliminated. A number of CyboInverters can daisy-chain with attached AC cables and connectors. No time consuming solar panel alignment, nor complex DC cable and/or AC cable installations are required. A CyboInverter can be easily mounted on the back rail of a solar panel outside or hung on a wall inside. A CyboInverter based solar power system is simply the easiest one to install due to its unique features and advantages.
