The SolarEdge power optimizer is a DC/DC converter which is connected by installers to each PV module (or pair of modules) 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 platform for enhanced, cost-effective module-level maintenance. Each power optimizer is equipped with the unique SafeDC™ feature which is designed to automatically shut down modules' DC voltage whenever the inverter or grid power is shut down.
The P750-MC4 not only allows shorter string design with SolarEdge inverters, to a minimum of 6 modules per string but its ideally suited to larger, higher voltage and higher current modules such as 96 cells (high voltage) or bi-facial (high current). This increased flexibility will allow smaller installations to be optimised for maximum energy output.
