Inverter, optimizer & gateway
SolarEdge Technologies has unveiled a new line of products for commercial applications in the North American market, including: a line of 3-phase solar inverters from 9 kW to 20 kW in size; a 600 W capable power optimizer, enabling a two-to-one connection for 60 cell modules; and a new gateway for site communication and PV monitoring. Implementing the new line of commercial inverters will simplify PV system design and lower installation costs. The new line of 3-phase inverters allows designers to install significantly longer module strings than with traditional inverters, lowering electrical labor and component count by half. These inverters reach a high-weighted CEC efficiency of up to 98%, due to a fixed string voltage design that ensures optimal DC/AC conversion. Supporting two 60-cell crystalline solar modules, the 600 W power optimizer builds on SolarEdge’s high-efficiency electronics offerings, reaching a maximum efficiency of 99.5%. By taking the maximum power point (MPP) trackers out of the inverters and putting them into the power optimizers, SolarEdge can optimize the PV system, increasing energy harvest, offering module level monitoring, and enhancing system safety.
