Symmetrical Boost Concept for Transformer-less solar inverter applications

November 21st 2011 - In a transformer-less solar inverter application the symmetry of split supply DC voltages with ground is an important issue. The concept described in this article shows the handling of both the input and the output asymmetry in an MPP booster circuit.


There are two different example concepts. The first example demonstrates how to connect solar panel strings with different power and intensity conditions on a solar inverter environment. There is also the possibility to combine panels with different power and MPP characteristics within the booster.

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.
