A good Micro inverter should give you higher production, advanced intelligence, and greater reliability.
In short, the advantages of Micro-Inverters are:
Despite the fact that the NSW Solar Bonus Scheme finished in 2017, falling solar-based costs and rising power costs imply NSW occupants keep on taking up solar-based.
- Micro inverters work independently, as each panel can perform at the most. One dirty or shaded panel won’t affect other parts of the solar power system.
- Micro inverters produce more energy for a longer solar day in low-light or at dawn, dusk conditions with the use of burst technlogy.
Let’s have a look at the micro inverters available in Australia, which will be best, suited for your solar power system:
- Enphase IQ 7 and IQ 7X Micro inverters: With The high-powered smart grid-ready Enphase IQ Series Micros™ technology it produces the highest system efficiency. It has optimized for high-powered cell-like, 60-cell, 72-cell* and 96-cell* modules.
- SMA TS4-R-DEN1725 Inverter: It has the TS4-R module technology, which is a cost-effective system that fits into any PV module design to make it an exact solution for every solar application. It ensures and configuration flexibility & maximum energy yield, and minimal maintenance costs.
How are the macro inverters different from the other types of inverters?
High Voltage DC: A series string inverter can create a risk of very high temperature arcing and potentially fire by producing a high voltage DC. As micro inverters convert DC to 240V AC, which can minimize the potential risks.
Switchgear: In Micro Inverter, it requires switchgear, which is cheaper & more commonly available. High voltage DC (mainly String inverters) requires relatively expensive protective switches and fuses.
Shading: As Micro Inverters are located independently on each solar panel, their outputs are completely independent of each other. So that no external materials like bird poo, can affect the soiled panel. But in a series string, shading can dramatically affect the entire.
Solar panel mismatch: At the time of manufacturing of solar panels, due to imperfect manufacturing tolerances, they each have slightly different electrical characteristics. It’s effect as “mismatch” when they are connected together in a series string. But in Micro inverters, they adapt to the individual characteristics of each panel to avoiding mismatch.
