SolarEdge optimizers are DC/DC converters that are designed to replace conventional junction boxes. They are simply clipped to the PV module frame or rail and connected to each PV module individually. Optimizers, as their name implies, are used to improve the energy production and performance of PV systems by up to 25%. The optimizers accomplish this by monitoring and tracking the maximum power point (MPPT) of each individual PV line.
The monitored data is then shown in the SolarEdge monitoring portal, enabling the user to better understand the system's performance and how to best manage your collection. The SolarEdge optimizers also assist in the stabilization of PV performance by reducing device offsets caused by shading or other factors that cause output mismatches. Each optimizer also has a safety feature called SafeDC, which will shut down the system's DC voltage if the grid power is turned off for some reason.
When it comes to installation, the SolarEdge optimizers are highly flexible. They can be strung in long or short lengths and in any direction. One of the most appealing features is how simple it is to install the optimizers. They're compatible with both c-Si and thin-film modules, and they're designed to withstand the elements. SolarEdge also provides a 25-year guarantee on the optimizer's performance, ensuring its consistency and longevity.
