A polarity inversion driving method and apparatus for a liquid crystal display panel, and a liquid crystal display, is provided in order to solve the technical problem in the prior art that the interference strips are concentrated in one line, without increasing the power consumption of the liquid crystal display panel. The method comprises the steps of: generating n polarity control signals of different timings, wherein n is an integer and n≧2, and each polarity control signal is used to control a polarity voltage for sub-pixels in one or more columns of a liquid crystal display panel; and outputting the n polarity control signals to polarity control lines in the liquid crystal display panel, wherein each polarity control line corresponds to one polarity control signal..

Photovoltaic array mounting apparatus, systems, and methods
The invention comprises an apparatus for mounting a photovoltaic (pv) module on a surface, comprising a support with an upper surface, a lower surface, tabs, one ore more openings, and a clip comprising an arm and a notch, where the apparatus resists wind forces and seismic forces and creates a grounding electrical bond between the pv module, support, and clip. The invention further comprises a method for installing pv modules on a surface that includes arranging supports in rows along an x axis and in columns along a y axis on a surface such that in each row the distance between two neighboring supports does not exceed the length of the longest side of a pv module and in each column the distance between two neighboring supports does not exceed the length of the shortest side of a pv module, placing a pv module upon the supports such that each corner of the frame of the pv module rests on a support, and connecting the supports to the pv module by engaging a clip to at least a portion of the frame of the pv module and to the support.
