The SolarEdge power optimizer is a DC/DC converter which is connected to each solar module. The SolarEdge power optimizers increase energy output from PV systems by constantly tracking the maximum power point (MPPT) of each module individually. The power optimizers also monitor the performance of each module and communicate performance data to the SolarEdge monitoring platform. The SafeDC feature is designed to automatically reduce modules’ DC voltage to a safe level whenever the inverter or grid power is shut down, is a valuable safety feature. Some of the benefits of using SolarEdge power optimizers are listed below:

  • Per-module Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT), with MPPT per two modules using commercial power optimizers
  • Superior efficiency (99.5% peak efficiency, up to 98.8% weighted efficiency)
  • Mitigates all types of modules mismatch-loss, from manufacturing tolerance, partial shading, and aging
  • 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.
  • Connected by installers to c-Si, thin-film, and high current (including bi-facial) modules
