Enphase Microinverters use advanced power electronics and innovative parallel wiring to avoid common performance problems seen in traditional solar systems.
As a result, the Enphase Microinverter System significantly increases the output of solar systems.
Solar systems are constantly affected by environmental factors, such as shade, dust and debris.
Using a traditional inverter means that everything is wired in series, and the lowest performing module determines the performance of the entire series. This is commonly known as “The Christmas Light Effect,” and can significantly decrease the energy production of the system.
Enphase Microinverter Solution
Enphase Microinverters allow each solar panel to operate independently and control the power from each with 99.6% accuracy.
This results in a significant increase in the performance of the entire system.
Traditional inverter systems typically shut off during low-light conditions, such as the morning and evening or during thick cloud cover. This is due to the fact that they require a minimum amount of incoming power to operate efficiently.
Enphase “Burst Mode” Solution
In contrast, Enphase Microinverters go into what’s called “Burst Mode,” during low-light conditions. At these times, the microinverter stores up the small trickle of power coming from the panel, until there’s enough to send a burst of energy. By doing this, the microinverter is able to maintain highly efficient operation, even during low-light conditions.
