Solar Power Harvesting, Optimization and Monitoring System
The SolarEdge portfolio of products includes power optimizers, highly efficient PV inverters and a Web platform for module-level monitoring and fault detection. The SolarEdge system enables harvesting more solar power from any PV system by effectively removing the known system constraints across the photovoltaic energy space.
SolarEdge Power Optimizer
The SolarEdge power optimizer is a DC/DC
converter which is connected to each PV module.
The SolarEdge power optimizers increase energy
output from PV systems by constantly tracking
the maximum power point (MPPT) of each
module individually. Furthermore, the power
optimizers monitor the performance of each module and communicate performance data to the SolarEdge monitoring portal for enhanced, cost-effective module-level maintenance. Each power optimizer is equipped with the unique SafeDC™ feature which automatically shuts down modules’ DC voltage whenever the inverter or grid power is shut down. The MPPT per module allows for flexible installation design with multiple orientations, tilts and module types in the same string. The SolarEdge power optimizers are compatible with most panels and have a 25 year warranty.
SolarEdge PV Inverter
The SolarEdge DC-AC PV inverter is specifically designed to work with
the SolarEdge power optimizers. Because MPPT and voltage management
are handled 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.
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 provides 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.
Maximum Power - Every day
More power = more savings on your electricity bill.
In a PV system, each panel has an individual maximum threshold. Differences between panels introduce power losses and can lead to under performance of the entire system over time. With traditional inverters, the weakest panel reduces the performance of all panels. With SolarEdge, each panel produces the maximum energy, and power losses are eliminated.
SolarEdge’s SafeDC™ feature is designed to reduce the PV array to a safe voltage upon AC or inverter shutdown, offering more protection to installers, firefighters, and your home. It’s like providing an ‘off’ switch for the panels. (Certified in Europe as a DC disconnect according to IEC/EN 60947-1 and IEC/EN 60947-3 and to the safety standards VDE AR 2100-712 and OVE R-11-1)
More Aesthetic Rooftops
SolarEdge enables optimal rooftop utilisation, resulting in a more aesthetic design, for more energy and more savings. SolarEdge enables you to mix and match panel types, giving you the option to easily expand your array at a later date.
Full System Monitoring
A solar PV system without monitoring would be like a car without a dashboard. How fast are you driving? Do you have enough fuel? The SolarEdge monitoring platform provides free, real-time visibility into the performance of each panel in your set of solar panels and is accessible from any computer, smartphone, or tablet, anytime, anywhere.
SolarEdge products are field-proven and built for lasting performance. This enables us to offer warranties which are amongst the longest in the industry, including 25 years for SolarEdge power optimisers and 12 years for inverters (extendable to 20 or 25 years for an additional cost). Protect your investment and enjoy peace of mind.
