GET THE MOST OUT OF THE SUN
The same advantages are also available for DC microgrids with integrated safety wire in 350 and 700VDC.
In order to visualize the advantages, let us present an example: 60-cell panels consist of three substrings and, when opaque shades (debris, leaf, snow, bird dropping, etc) cover them, the MPPT voltage drops up to one third, as shown in the following picture:
OptiVerter® Technology's capability to perform MPPT down to very low voltages results in maximum energy harvesting—while the voltage levels with opaque shading are out of a microinverter range (22...40 VDC), an optiverter under the same circumstances would still work due to its power optimizer-like capabilities:
The word "OptiVerter" is registered as a trademark in the European Union, India, Australia and the US.
More information about the topology and its multimode control principle can be found here. The downloads page contains Scientific Papers that would allow you to further discover the OptiVerter® Technology.
