SolarEdge Solar PV systems: intelligent, powerful, and innovative

Established in 2006, SolarEdge developed in intelligent DC optimised inverter solution that changed the way power is harvested and managed in photovoltaic (PV) systems.

The SolarEdge intelligent inverter solution maximises power generation within each individual PV panel while lowering the cost of energy produced by the solar PV system overall. So, you get improved power and an improved return on investment.

SolarEdge continues to explore innovative, cutting-edge technology to advance smart energy, making their products a great choice for a broad range of energy market segments.

The SolarEdge system consists of a variety of inverters, power optimisers, storage solutions, and a monitoring platform.

For commercial operations, the SolarEdge power optimisers enable installation of panels in partially shaded areas, strings of uneven lengths and strings in multiple orientations and different roof facets.

SolarEdge products deploy power optimisers to each PV panel while keeping the AC inversion and grid interaction centralised using a simplified DC-AC inverter. This results in:

  • superior power harvesting and panel management at a competitive cost
  • more power from the available roof space
  • a faster return on investment for system owners and increased profits.

In a PV system with no shading issues, SolarEdge can typically add ~2% more energy in the system’s first year. This is achieved by limiting losses due to manufacturing tolerance mismatch, soiling and more.

A further ~3%-5% more energy can be added my mitigating panel mismatch that often occurs through uneven panel degradation.

Smart PV Panels

SolarEdge’s 365W smart panel includes monocrystalline PERC half-cut cell technology with integrated power optimiser.

Each panel includes 120 cells (6 x 20), measures 1776 x 1052 x 40mm and weighs in at 20.7kg.

Energy output is optimised by constantly tracking the maximum power point of each module individually.

PV inverters

All SolarEdge central PV inverters combine the benefits of string and micro inverters while being specifically designed to work with their power optimisers.

Single phase inverter with HD-Wave technology

SolarEdge’s single phase inverter with HD-Wave technology has won several industry awards. The inverter is only responsible for DC to AC inversion, with the SolarEdge power optimiser separately handling maximum power point tracking and voltage management for each solar panel. This makes the inverter simpler, more cost effective and more reliable than many others on the market.

The fixed string voltage always ensures operation at the highest efficiency, independent of string length and temperature.

Three phase inverter

The SolarEdge three phase inverter achieves superior solar power harvesting by combining sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power conversion. The fixed-voltage technology ensures the solar inverter is always working at its optimal input voltage, regardless of the number of panels in a string or environmental conditions.

An integrated monitoring receiver aggregates the power optimiser performance data from each PV panel. This data can be transmitted to the web and accessed via the SolarEdge monitoring platform for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting of PV systems.

Three phase inverter with synergy technology

SolarEdge’s three phase inverters with synergy technology combine large capacity with ease of installation. Based on small, lightweight, and easy-to-carry primary and secondary units, the inverters are wall mounted for a minimal footprint and only requires a one or two-person crew to install. This results in reduced setup times and costs. 

These three phase inverters are available in: 50kW, 55kW, and 82.8kW as well as 66.6kW and 100kW for medium voltage grids.
