For universal, cost-effective solar panel optimisation… ALWAYS! SMA Tigo optimisers can be used with almost all string inverters and as a package can provide a very cost-effective alternative to a full MLPE solution, ideal for when only partial optimisation is required.

A solar panel micro inverter is device that connects to a single solar panel, converting DC (direct current) from the panel into AC (alternating current), which can power household appliances or be sent into the grid for energy credits. Unlike string inverters, micro inverters control the output of a single panel. This article outlines the […]

Fronius is launching a whole portfolio of qualitatively unbeatable hybrid inverters with the Gen24 Plus series onto the market. The  Fronius Primo Gen24 is available as a single-phase inverter in the performance classes 3.0/3.6/4.0/4.6/5.0/6.0 kW and is ideal for PV systems up to 6 kWp. Buy Fronius Primo and Symo Gen24 Plus However, the company’s highlight and Europe’s market […]

Solar panels with built-in optimizers are very much in vogue. They can also obtain more yield from the PV system in the event of shading, different orientation or different module types and thus enable the perfect use of the roof. Optimized solar panels – Worth it? Performance optimizers can also monitor modules and even perform fire […]

The use of energy meters in photovoltaic systems for dynamic in-feed control or for a battery storage system is meanwhile nothing new. In larger systems, however, it is often not possible to connect the normal meters directly, as these could be destroyed by the sometimes very high currents. Basic principle of current transformer The so-called measuring […]
