Next generation of photovoltaic modules that will revolutionize the solar industry and accelerate the pace toward grid parity with the following advantages.
Power optimizer connected to each panel (replacing the panel junction box)
SolarEdge inverter are specifically designed for power optimizers
Monitoring portal visualizes performance of each panel
Simple installation – same as a traditional system
Module Level Optimization
By connecting a SolarEdge power optimizer to a PV panel it becomes a smart panel.This allows:
Harvest of up to 25% more energy from each panel
Constant feedback on the performance of each panel
Automatic shutdown of each panel for maximum safety in case of emergency
Possibility of very long and uneven strings
In a PV system each panel has an individual maximum power point, so for traditional inverter, the weakest panel reduces the performance of all panels. However, for SolarEdge's panels, each one produces the maximum energy. The weakest panel does not affect the performance of the rest of the system.
Power optimizers enable installation of modules in partially shaded areas, strings of uneven lengths and strings in multiple orientations and different roof facets. That means more modules can be installed on the roof, generating more power and revenue.
With a traditional inverter, there is no option to shut down the high voltage on the roof as long as the sun is up. With SolarEdge however, DC wires are automatically de-energized whenever AC power is off. SolarEdge power optimizers automatically shut down the DC voltage in the PV wires to protect installers, maintenance personnel and firefighters.
SolarEdge is the only inverter solution that meets the most advanced safety standards (VDE 2100, IEC 60947, NEC2014, UL1699B).
