solar power optimizers

The Tigo TS4 energy optimiser offers users a selective deployment feature so that you can customise it to your specific needs. This Tigo optimiser works independently of your system’s inverters and you can choose which panels you need to optimise – there’s no minimum or maximum number of panels.

Short answer: Yes, absolutely. The reality is: SolarEdge inverters with power optimizers are one of our most common system inverter configurations for both residential and commercial arrays. TIGO from SMA basically does the same job. If you have a site with shading, or simply want a more efficient system, then power optimizers are a great option for you.

Optimizers increase the maximum power point tracking (MPPT) of inverters,” Mark Kanjorski of Ampt told Solar Power World in a podcast. Optimizers constantly monitor the array voltage and current and work to mitigate mismatch effects so that each module can operate at its maximum power level.

12-16 panels
How many solar panels to supply an average household? A typical home is approximately 1,500 square feet (153 square meter), with electrical costs of about $100 per month (70 Euro). Such a house generally needs about 12 to 16 panels to completely cover electrical power needs. 

Efficiency. As a general rule string inverters are typically marginally higher in efficiency. However, your overall system efficiency (yield) should be slightly higher with optimizers or microinverters because they optimise individual panel output.

A SolarEdge or TIGO power optimiser is a DC/DC converter which is connected by installers to each solar panel, turning them into smart panels. The solar panel power optimisers increase energy output from PV systems by constantly tracking the maximum power point (MPPT) of each panel individually.
