Description

Less Complicated, More Reliable
Designed to work in conjunction with the revolutionary SolarEdge System, the SolarEdge SE3000A-US-U 3.0 kW gridtie inverter is a highly reliable, compact, easy to install inverter. In a SolarEdge PV system, the MPPT and voltage management are handled separately for each module via a SolarEdge Power Optimizer. (See accessories below.) This means the inverter is only responsible for DC to AC inversion, and the result is a less complicated, more reliable device. The fixed string voltage ensures operation at the highest efficiency ( greater than 97%) at all times, independent of string length and temperature.


Web-Enabled Data Device Included with Inverter
A proprietary data monitoring receiver is integrated in the SE3000A-US-U inverter to combine SolarEdge Power Optimizer performance data from each PV module. Multiple inverters can be connected in an RS485 bus, which is included with this inverter, or by using a GSM cellular network. The data from the inverters is transmitted to the web using an Ethernet connection or a wireless link and can be accessed via the SolarEdge Monitoring Portal for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting.

Integrated Arc Fault Protection
The newer model, the SE3800A-US-U, comes with integrated arc fault protection (type 1) to help you meet NEC2011 690.11 code requirements.

About SolarEdge

Key Points

  • Up to 25% more efficient than string inverters in systems with shading issues.
  • Optimal DC to AC conversion regardless of string lengths.

The SolarEdge System pushes the envelope in the continuing endeavor to improve gridtie solar power generation. In a SolarEdge System, a DC to DC Power optimizer is paired with each solar panel in an array, allowing each one to operate independently at its highest efficiency.

Benefits to a SolarEdge System include:

  • 25% increase in energy production in systems with shading issues!
  • Energy loss caused by module mismatch and partial shading is eliminated.
  • Multiple arrays and module orientations are easily supported.
  • Individual module monitoring, performance reporting and alerts.
  • SolarEdge's proprietary SafeDC mechanism provides greater safety by shutting down module voltage during installation, maintenance, and firefighting.
Fewer Constraints when designing your system:
  • There is no more need for string sizing.
  • Temperature is not a factor because fixed string voltage ensures the inverter always operates at its peak efficiency voltage and prevents under-voltage power losses even on hot days.
  • Panels don't all have to be facing the same way.
  • Different string lengths can now be accommodated.
  • Solar power ratings and technologies can vary.
Compare the SolarEdge System to other systems

Unlike traditional gridtie systems, microinverter solar power systems have many of the same benefits listed above. Like SolarEdge Power Optimizers, microinverters control the output of each solar panel with Maximum Power Tracking. While microinverters optimize DC power and convert it to AC power, Power Optimizers offer DC to DC power optimization. One great advantage to SolarEdge Power Optimizers is that they can accommodate solar panels of up to 405 watts depending on the Power Optimizer you use.

A traditional gridtie system is similar to a SolarEdge system in that it has a centralized inverter responsible for DC to AC conversion. Some prefer traditional gridtie systems because the inverters are more accessible than microinverters. Others prefer to use a system with proven technology that has been around awhile.

Monitoring Options

Monitoring is simple with the use of ethernet cable or ethernet bridge. If you have any questions regarding this system, or would like to discuss a custom-made system, please contact us.
