Impedance compensation


The invention relates to a method for operating a power converter (1), preferably a solar inverter, for feeding a load current (iload) into a grid (3). The method includes the steps of determining the load current (iload), monitoring an output voltage (uout) of the power converter (1), and controlling the load current (iload), to avoid that the output voltage (uout) exceeds a voltage limit (uout,lim), wherein the voltage limit (uout,lim) is adjusted in dependency of the load current (iload).

Shaping reram conductive filaments by controlling grain-boundary density


Filament size and shape in a reram stack can be controlled by doping layers of a variable-resistance stack to change the crystallization temperature. This changes the density of the grain boundaries that form during annealing and provide minimal-resistance paths for the migration of charged defects.
