Updated inverters and optimisers on the cards

SolarEdge is previewing a new version of its 120 kW three-phase inverter with synergy technology which is designed to enable quick and easy installation and inventory management. The company will also launch a new commercial power optimiser with two MPP trackers which connects to up to four modules. The new commercial inverter and power optimiser […]

Locally made inverters for new solar farms

RWW Engineering, a South African manufacturer of electrical equipment for industry and utilities, has been appointed the South African manufacturer of inverters for Spanish company Green Power Technologies. The inverters will be used at three 75 MW solar PV farms which are being built as part of Round 4 of South Africa’s Renewable Energy Independent […]

Safe, robust, repeatable and reliable solar energy 

Using innovative technology, the latest fixed-string voltage innovation in photovoltaic (PV) solar systems introduces a significant advantage over commonly deployed traditional string inverters.  Before we look at the advantages offered, allow me to explain what is meant by a “fixed-string voltage”. By using a maximum power point tracking (MPPT) electronic device at each PV module, […]

Supraharmonics in transmission and distribution networks

Standards for harmonics in power networks (transmission and distribution) usually deal with the range below 2 kHz, as most of the harmonics due to waveform distortion fall into this range. Harmonics or disturbances in the range above 2 kHz are becoming noticeable in networks due to the introduction of inverter based distributed generators, and are […]

Larger-capacity, three-phase inverter

  SolarEdge is extending its commercial offering with the launch of larger-capacity, three-phase inverters up to 100 kW. The new inverters enable reduced installation time and cost, while also providing smart energy management control. Coordinating PV, storage, and home energy, the company’s residential solution manages and monitors solar energy generation, electricity consumption, energy storage, and device […]
