Have come across a site today where the client has had a voltage optimisation unit fitted on his incoming mains supply.
The supply transformer is rated at 2MVA, and the voltage optimiser at 2250A (which appears to be undersized to me!)
Just wondering if anyone has come across these...
Quote for Solar PV upgrade: Solaredge + optimisers NE of Bristol
After consideration of the pros and cons, I have decided to upgrade my current inverter to the Solaredge 3.6kW with x16 power optimisers.
Primarily it is because I like the idea of a 20 year warranty on the inverter (19 years...
I'v been looking into voltage optimisers
are you really going to save money
boasts savings on 8-10%
reducing incoming voltage basicly a step-down transformer
and prehaps reduces heat loss from over voltage
lower voltage higher current?
I I believe it's to reduce
IR from the Kvar KV calc...
Hi just about to install my first solar system. Been a commercial electrician for 29 years but no PV experience. After pushed away from Micro inverters by advice from people on here I decieded on Solaredge.
Have sized my system on the solar edge designer software. Now thats telling me I need a...
My Solar Edge installation was damaged yesterday by a lightning strike close to the house. The inverter is completely dead - no lights, and no display - and my best guess is that there was a power surge from the panels to the inverter. There could be further issues, but to take matters...
Having a bit of trouble matching these. I cant find where it sys how many cells the panel has and i can't seem to get the SE design tool to work!!! Grrrrr!! Can someone tell me which optimisers suit these panels please.

3kw with aurora outd 3.6 using the twin mppt inputs. 13 x romag 235w. 9 x east, 4 x south with the 4 south paired up with to on the east to give give enough voltage for the twin...
Got our first Solaredge install next week, are there any steps in the installation process I should be aware of before we start? Apart from the usual (completed over 1MW of domestic installs so far) just never tried micro inverteres before
Any guidance most greatfuly received
I've only recently stumbled upon these Solaredge power optimisers, Seem good and thinking of adding them on half of my array as they have shading in the winter months, so..
i have a 10 panel array, 5 with shading in winter months,
Can i add 5 power optimizers for 5 panels and add...
