Technology of Micro-Inverters

Details about Micro-Inverters

Micro-inverters are typically used in grid-connected photovoltaic systems. Depending on technical specifications, the AEconversion Micro-Inverter is individually connected to one or two PV-modules and converts the direct current into grid-compliant alternating current.

Through the individual conversion at each module, the sun’s energy can be used most efficiently. In addition, the micro-inverter solves another widespread problem in conventional systems. Because of the series connection in PV-systems using string- or central-inverters, the PV-modules are codependent regarding performance. If the performance of one PV-module drops due to shading or module mismatching for example, the modules in the same string are affected negatively. Through the individual connection in PV-systems using micro-inverters, the PV-modules are able work independently. Each photovoltaic module performs at their maximum to increase energy harvest.

AEconversion Micro-Inverter Advantages

AEconversion Micro-inverters are ideally suited for conventional photovoltaic applications. However, there are some applications for which the use of micro-inverters offers additional advantages over string- inverters. Some of these advantages include: higher safety in case of fire, monitoring as needed, safe and easy installation, no system failure, and MPP-Tracking on a modular basis.
