The long-term success of a PV system ultimately relies heavily on the quality of the components within it - and too often many inverter manufacturers cut corners to achieve less expensive products that will sell quickly.
With the advent of rapid shutdown, we see a move to more Module Level Power Electronics (MLPE).
The efficiency gain equals to approximately $2.5M additional energy being produced over a 100MW power plant's lifetime, on average at the global level.
Functioning as the brain of the PV system, advanced inverter solutions are now responsible for communications, monitoring, smart energy management, storage, grid interaction, safety and more.

Established Asia-Pacific Market Leader Reduces Inverter Cost per Watt by 33 percent by Releasing Equinox™ Inverters with Ampt Mode®
First Commercial Solar PV String Inverter with Field Upgradable Port for Direct Integration of Energy Storage Targeting $6.9 Billion Inverter Market
Solar Plants, one of Wales' leading independent PV installers, completes a 250kW commercial installation with SolarEdge's DC optimized inverter solution at Sony UK Technology Centre.
We asked one customer to model cost savings for us. Note that we didn't pay for this, and it was based on a real bid made in 2015.
Greater utility familiarity with smart inverters, as well as the further evolution of guiding standards and grid codes, are likely to enable the gradual emergence of optimal electric utility rollout strategies.
Knowing the limitations of string inverters may tell you just why the Module Level Power Electronics segment - microinverters - is on the rise.
As the demand for higher kVA capacities of solar inverters keeps expanding, higher switching currents need to be accommodated by relays used in these applications.
With HD-Wave technology, SolarEdge initially creates a much smoother sine wave (a high-definition wave) thus avoiding the heavy and costly magnetic components while gaining efficiency.
