3 main systems for your solar panels

1. Serial System/String system

GoodWe inverters are synonymous with serial or string inverter systems. In this setup, solar panels are connected in a series, forming a ‘string.’ This arrangement is cost-effective and straightforward in installations where panels receive consistent sunlight. However, the output can be impacted if one panel is shaded, as it affects the entire string.

GoodWe is a prominent name in the solar industry, especially recognized for its exceptional string inverter solutions tailored for residential use. GoodWe’s string systems exemplify a blend of innovation and reliability, designed to maximize the efficiency of solar installations. GoodWe inverters are engineered to cater to a wide range of home solar system requirements, from small-scale rooftop arrays to more substantial, high-powered installations.

At the core of GoodWe’s offering is the user-friendly, efficient, and durable design of their string inverters. These inverters are known for their robustness, capable of withstanding varied environmental conditions while ensuring consistent performance. Their compact, lightweight design simplifies installation and integrates seamlessly into the home environment.

GoodWe’s inverters stand out for their adaptability, with a wide input voltage range and MPPT (Maximum Power Point Tracking) technology. This ensures optimal energy harvest even under fluctuating sunlight conditions. Moreover, their inverters feature integrated monitoring systems, allowing homeowners to easily track energy production and consumption, thus enhancing energy management and potentially leading to significant savings on electricity costs.

Additionally, GoodWe places a strong emphasis on safety and reliability, with features such as integrated DC switch, overvoltage protection, and remote maintenance capabilities. This commitment to quality and safety has made GoodWe a trusted brand in the residential solar sector, offering homeowners a reliable path to harnessing solar energy with confidence.

2. Parallel System

SolarEdge inverters are designed for parallel systems. Here, panels are wired independently, allowing them to perform optimally even if one panel is underperforming due to shading or orientation. This system enhances overall efficiency and is ideal for roofs with multiple angles or varying shading conditions.

SolarEdge HD Wave

SolarEdge is at the forefront of solar technology innovation, particularly renowned for its parallel system solutions. This technology fundamentally changes how power is harvested and managed in a solar energy system. By utilizing a parallel architecture, SolarEdge optimizes the performance of each individual solar panel. This approach is especially beneficial in scenarios where panels are subject to varying levels of sunlight, such as partial shading or roofs with multiple orientations.

At the heart of SolarEdge’s system is its power optimizer, which is installed on each panel. This setup ensures that even if one panel is underperforming due to shading or debris, the others continue to operate at their maximum capacity. The result is a significant increase in energy output and efficiency compared to traditional serial-connected systems.

Additionally, SolarEdge’s parallel system enhances safety by providing built-in module-level shutdown, a crucial feature for fire safety and maintenance. This system also pairs seamlessly with their sophisticated monitoring platform, allowing for real-time tracking and control of each panel’s performance. This level of granularity in monitoring and control positions SolarEdge as a leader in solar energy management.

3. Micro Inverters

Enphase is renowned for its micro inverter technology. Each panel has its own micro inverter, ensuring that the performance of one does not affect the others. This system is highly efficient in maximizing energy production, especially in complex installation environments with variable shading or panel orientation.

The Enphase IQ7A High Power Smart Grid Microinverter

The Enphase IQ7A Microinverter represents a significant leap in solar technology efficiency and installation simplicity, particularly for systems using 60-cell, 66-cell, and 72-cell modules. As an integral component of the Enphase IQ System, the IQ7A Microinverter works seamlessly with the IQ Gateway and the Enphase App, offering advanced monitoring and analysis capabilities. This system not only ensures easier and faster installation with its lightweight, two-conductor wiring but also includes built-in quick shutdown support for enhanced safety.

Renowned for its reliability, the IQ Microinverter series has undergone extensive testing, exceeding one million hours of power-on trials. This rigorous testing underpins Enphase’s confidence to offer a 25-year limited warranty, an industry-leading commitment. The IQ7A model stands out with an impressive EU efficiency of 96.5% and meets stringent advanced network support requirements, including specific voltage and frequency parameters. Moreover, its double-insulated, Class II casing further enhances its durability and safety standards.

One of the most notable features of the IQ7A is its ability to receive remote updates, allowing it to adapt to changing grid requirements. This flexibility, combined with configurable options for various network profiles, positions the IQ7A as a future-proof solution in the dynamic landscape of solar energy technology.
