SolarEdge invented an intelligent inverter solution that revolutionised the way power is harvested and managed in a solar photovoltaic (PV) system. The SolarEdge direct current (DC) optimised inverter system maximises power generation at the individual PV panel level while lowering the cost of energy produced by the solar PV system.
Addressing a broad range of solar market segments, from residential solar installations to commercial and small utility-scale solar installations, the SolarEdge system consists of inverters, power optimisers, storage solutions, and a monitoring platform.
The SolarEdge system enables superior power harvesting and panel management by deploying power optimisers to each PV panel while maintaining a competitive system cost by keeping the alternating current (AC) inversion and grid interaction centralised using a simplified DC-AC inverter.
All SolarEdge central PV inverters combine all the benefits of string and micro inverters and specifically designed to work with the SolarEdge power optimisers. This allows for maximum power production due to module-level maximum power point tracking (MPPT) and limits the effects of module mismatch caused by shading or degradation.
SolarEdge optimisers eliminate power mismatch between panels and come with a 25-year warranty, while inverters come with standard 12-year warranty, which is extendable to 20-25 years for a fee.
Since beginning commercial shipments in 2010, SolarEdge has shipped approximately 6.7 Gigawatt (GW) of its DC optimised inverter systems and products have been installed in solar PV systems in 120 countries.
