Using GANs for PV production data

This year I’m excited to present our work on generative adversarial networks for synthesizing solar resource and PV production data. Come check out our modeling and validation approach! “Synthesis of multi-year PV production data using generative adversarial networks” Gregory M. … Continue reading

Image upscaling

Machine learning methods for “super-resolution” or “upscaling” are more accessible than ever. I was looking to make some out-of-print playing cards for Arkham Horror LCG, but I needed to upscaled my reference images by a 4x to achieve good printing … Continue reading

PV module imaging and quality assurance

Near-infrared imaging and lock-in thermography provide detailed, complementary information for studying the performance of PV modules. In previous work, we described how to extract both local efficiency and nonuniformity characteristics from high-resolution images (as low as 22 μm/pixel). Near-infrared images … Continue reading

Building the Custom LED Vanity

For this build we are making a wall-mounted vanity mirror with about a 2000K to 8000K color temperature range.  White LEDs are available in this range but they typically achieve the color temperature target using special composition and density of … Continue reading

C# WinForms offers a suite of fully-featured controls for building responsive, event-driven user interfaces. However, there is limited native support for data visualization and the existing tools show poor performance when plotting >100K data points.

My solution to this problem is DataGridViewPrime, a class extension of DataGridView that includes functions to Save, Copy and Explore the data source bound to the control. The features are accessed though a new context menu created for the control.

Samurai II

I’ve been working on resurrecting my original Samurai game, except using some respectable 3D graphics, better user input and more realistic physics.  Samurai II is in the works.

The game was a project for me in 2004 using some very poor graphics library in C++ but despite its technical shortcomings… IT WAS AMAZING!!!
