SOLAREDGE POWER OPTIMIZER
The SolarEdge power optimizer is a DC / DC converter that is connected to each panel by installers, or integrated by panel manufacturers with the power optimizer replacing the junction box. The SolarEdge power optimizers increase the energy output of PV systems by continuously tracking the Maximum Power Point (MPP) of each panel individually. In addition, the power optimizers monitor the performance of each panel and communicate the performance data to the SolarEdge monitoring platform for enhanced, cost-effective panel-level maintenance.
Each power optimizer is equipped with the unique SafeDC ™ mechanism that automatically switches the DC voltage from the panel to a lower level when the inverter or grid power is disconnected.
Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) per panel allows flexible installation design with multiple orientations, tilt angles and panel types in the same string. SolarEdge power optimizers in combination with SolarEdge inverters automatically maintain a fixed string voltage, offering installers even more 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 and thin film panels and have a 25-year warranty.
