SolarEdge Inverters & Optimisers

SOLAREDGE POWER OPTIMISER

The SolarEdge power optimiser is a DC/DC converter which is connected by installers to each solar panel. The SolarEdge power optimisers increase energy output from PV systems by constantly tracking the maximum power point (MPPT) of each panel individually. Furthermore, the power optimisers monitor the performance of each module and communicate performance data to the SolarEdge monitoring portal for enhanced, cost-effective module-level maintenance. Each power optimiser is equipped with the unique SafeDC™ feature which automatically shuts down modules’ DC voltage whenever the inverter or grid power is shut down.

SOLAREDGE PV INVERTER

The SolarEdge inverter is specifically designed to work with the SolarEdge power optimisers. Because MPPT and voltage management are handled separately for each module by the power optimiser, the inverter is only responsible for DC to AC conversion. Consequently, it is a less complicated, more cost effective, more reliable solar inverter with a standard 12 year warranty (extendable to 25 years). The fixed string voltage ensures operation at the highest efficiency at all times (>97% weighted efficiency) independent of string length and temperature.

SOLAREDGE PV MONITORING PORTAL

The SolarEdge PV Monitoring Portal is a web-based application that provides module-level monitoring. The solar monitoring software provides enhanced maintenance of PV systems and yield assurance. The portal automatically provides alerts for accurate and immediate fault detection, localized on a virtual site map for on-site and remote troubleshooting at the module level. Module performance is communicated across existing power lines, so no extra wiring is required.
