TERNARY IN A NUTSHELL
Ternary B.V. (Ltd) is a company, founded in 1987 by the founder Mr. Johan D. (Hans) Spek and the Innovative Starters Fund (ISF). The company had to finance the fundamental research and the patentprocedure for a Ternary Memory Element, based on Fieldeffect transistors with Silicium semiconductor-technology. This is base for a MultiValued Digital System, which calculate with three instead of two digital values.
The CMOS Ternary Memory Element is developed by the founder Mr. Spek. It is patented in the USA in 1989 and in Europe in 1994. It is very quick published in 1989 in the Special Issue on Multivalued Logics of the International Journal of Electronics (IEEE).
TRANSISION TO EFFICIENT RENEWABLE ENERGY SYSTEMS
Because of our knowledge of Siliciumprocessing there is a link to the Photovoltaic Solar Technology. Therefore the goal of the company changed in 1991 to Renewable Energy, again based on Silicium technology.
The company sold battery based offgrid autonomous Photovoltaic Systems in the Netherlands on small scale. We gained knowledge about Solar Energy in practical systems. We learned a lot about energy efficiency in solar systems by own research.
Since 2003 Ternary was asked to advice in Europe in big Solarplants, connected to the Grid. We adviced to Projectdeveloppers and Systemarchitects.
Today, Ternary is able to advice in big Projects in the whole World.
By own research we found the manner to gain more energy on yearbase.
Ternary specialized in avoiding energylosses in PV-systems.
Main goal is now in participating in development of big installations in Europe for solarinstallations with maximum possible energyproduction.
We do the research to produce ourselves intelligent hardly-shaderesistant PV-modules where every single panel is internally optimized and constantly small groups of cells operate protected against shading effects. This techique eliminate hardly all causes of losses by mismatching by degrading and shading.
We want to let build big solarplants by good EPC’s and operate them by the Ternary Organization itself.
