Private and public organizations in the renewable energy sector around the world have been involved in intensive research to drive up the efficiency of solar panels. In the past 30 years, we have seen firms come up with several innovations that have gradually boosted the efficiency of solar panels. Organizations have been developing new technologies based on novel solar cell architectural designs and innovating materials that provide more efficient energy conversion. These efforts have reduced the price of solar power significantly. In 1977, the cost of solar panels was US$76.67/watt and today, it is just US$0.613/watt.

SolarEdge Technologies - Solar Inverters, Power Optimizers and PV Monitoring

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power conversion architecture to achieve superior solar power harvesting and best-in-class reliability. The fixed-voltage technology ensures the solar inverter is always working at its optimal input voltage over a wider range of string lengths and regardless of environmental conditions. A proprietary data monitoring receiver has been integrated into the inverter and aggregates the power optimizer performance data from each PV module. This data can be transmitted to the web and accessed via the SolarEdge Monitoring Portal for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting of PV systems.
