SolarEdge Power Optimizer
The key to the SolarEdge solution is DC Optimisation. SolarEdge Power Optimizers increase energy output from PV systems, increase safety and provide cloud-based panel level monitoring.
The SolarEdge Power Optimizer is a DC/DC converter which is connected to each solar module, turning them into smart modules for maximum power and efficiency. The SolarEdge Power Optimizers increase energy output from PV systems by constantly tracking the maximum power point (MPPT) of each module individually.
The Power Optimizers also monitor the performance of each module and communicate performance data to the SolarEdge monitoring platform for enhanced, cost-effective module-level maintenance. Each Power Optimizer is equipped with the unique SafeDC™ feature, which is designed to automatically reduce modules’ DC voltage to a safe level whenever the inverter or grid power is shut down.
The DC optimised solution allows for flexible installation design with multiple orientations, tilts and module types in the same string. When working with SolarEdge inverters, the Power Optimizers automatically maintain a fixed string voltage, allowing installers even greater flexibility with longer strings and strings of different lengths in order to design optimal PV systems. The SolarEdge Power Optimizers are compatible with c-Si, thin-film, and high current modules and have a 25- year warranty.
SolarEdge PV Inverter
The SolarEdge DC-AC PV inverter is specially designed to work with the SolarEdge Power Optimizers. Because MPPT and voltage management are controlled separately for each module by the Power Optimizer, the inverter is only responsible for DC to AC inversion. Consequently, it is a less complicated, more cost-effective, more reliable solar inverter with a standard 12 year warranty, extendable to 20 or 25 years. The fixed string voltage ensures operation at the highest efficiency at all times (>97% weighted efficiency) independent of string length and temperature. In addition to its functionality as a DC-optimized inverter, the SolarEdge inverter also manages battery and system energy as part of the StorEdge system.
SolarEdge PV Monitoring Platform
The SolarEdge PV Monitoring Platform is a cloud-based platform that provides module-level, string-level and system-wide monitoring. The solar monitoring software gives enhanced maintenance of PV systems and yield assurance. The platform 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.
