SolarEdge’s HD-Wave Inverter First Ever to Reach 99% CEC Efficiency Rating

SolarEdge’s HD-Wave technology inverter, winner of the prestigious 2016 Intersolar award, breaks the mold of traditional inverters. Using a novel power conversion technology that is based on a distributed switching and powerful DSP processing, the HD-Wave technology inverter is able to synthesize a clean sine wave that leads to a dramatic reduction in the magnetics and heavy cooling elements. This small and lightweight inverter enables simplified shipping and storing and one-person installation. The record-breaking efficiency allows more energy production for an improved ROI. Range will be made available through 2017.

StorEdge™ Power Backup Benefits

 

More Energy

  • DC coupled solution allows high system efficiency
  • PV power is stored directly in the battery
  • No additional conversions from AC to DC and back to AC
  • Module-level power optimization for more power harvesting

 Simple Design & Installation

  • A single inverter for both PV, storage and backup power
  • Outdoor installation allows flexibility in battery location
  • No special wires are required -> utilizes the same PV cables

 Full Visibility and Easy Maintenance

  • Monitor the battery status, PV production, and self-consumption data
  • Smarter energy consumption to reduce electricity bill
  • Monitor battery energy levels and remaining hours of backup power
  • Remote access to inverter/battery software

 Enhanced Safety

  • PV array and battery voltage designed to reduce to a safe voltage upon AC shut down, when not in backup mode
  • Compliance with VDE 2100-712

Power Optimizer

The SolarEdge power optimizer is a DC/DC converter which is connected by installers to each PV module or embedded by module manufacturers, replacing the traditional solar junction box. 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.  When working with SolarEdge Inverters, SolarEdge power optimizers automatically maintain a fixed string voltage, allowing installers even greater flexibility with longer strings and strings of different lengths in order to design optimal PV systems. The SolarEdge power optimizers are compatible with c-Si and thin-film modules and have a 25 year warranty.

 

Feature highlights of SolarEdge Power optimizers:

  • Per-module Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT)
  • Superior efficiency (99.5% peak efficiency, 98.8% weighted efficiency)
  • Mitigates all  types of modules mismatch-loss, from manufacturing tolerance to partial shading
  • Designed for extreme environmental conditions
  • 25 year reliability and warranty
  • Advanced, real-time performance measurement
  • Automatic module DC voltage shut-down for installer and firefighter safety
  • Independent optimization technology (IndOP™) – allows operation with any inverter and requires no additional interface hardware
  • Embedded by module manufacturers, or connected by installers to c-Si and thin-film modules
  • Available with frames mounted in advance for quicker installation
