Enphase Energy Micro Inverter MC4

Enphase Energy presents the first commercially available Micro-Inverter system for residential and commercial PV solar panel applications. The Enphase Micro-Inverter system utilizes advanced technologies to maximize energy harvest, increase system reliability and dramatically simplify design, installation and management. The Enphase Micro-inverter shifts DC to AC conversion from a large, centralized inverter to a compact unit attached directly to each solar panel in the power system. Distributing the conversion process to each solar panel makes the entire solar power system more productive, reliable, and smarter than traditional inverter systems.

This video provides an introduction to Enphase Energy and its micro inverter solar products.
This video walks through the five easy steps on how to install the Enphase Micro-inverter for residential or commercial solar power systems.
FEATURES
  • Productive - Maximum energy production. Resilient to dust, debris, and shading. Performance monitoring per solar panel.
  • Reliable - MTBF of 331 years. System availability greater than 99.8%. No single point of failure.
  • Smart - Quick & simple design, installation and management. 24/7 monitoring and analysis.
  • Solar Power Challenges - Solar power production is affected by various factors such as solar panel mis-match, obstruction shading, inter-row shading, and obstacles such as dust or debris. In addition, non-uniform changes in temperature, irradiance, and shading create complex current-voltage curves, further affecting energy harvest. This is due to the fact that in traditional systems the performance of the entire system is dictated by the performance of the weakest solar panel.
  • The Enphase Solution - The Enphase Energy Microinverter System solves solar power challenges by performing Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) at each solar panel. MPPT is an algorithm used to calculate and respond to temperature and light changes detected on a solar power system, and to determine how much power to draw from the solar panel. In contrast, centralized inverter’s MPPT algorithm sees the entire solar power system as a single solar panel, and responds to the lowest production numbers it detects.
  • Increased Productivity - The Enphase MPPT algorithm works at each solar panel in an installation and achieves greater than 99.6% accuracy which enables it to maximize energy harvest at all times, even during variable light conditions. Tests show systems using Enphase Microinverters increase energy harvest by as much as 25% over systems using traditional inverters.
  • More Reliable - Traditional centralized inverters implementations create a single point of failure for solar power systems. If the inverter fails, the entire system is disabled. Enphase Microinverters convert power independently at each solar panel. If one microinverter fails, the rest continue to operate as usual. Also, if a microinverter is damaged or fails, it can be replaced during routine maintenance or when convenient, further reducing maintenance costs.
  • Reduced Operational Costs - With the Enphase Microinverter System, installers are no longer limited by string design, marginal designs, co-planarity, and matched solar panels. The space, heat, and noise associated with a large inverter are eliminated. Enphase Microinverter Systems improve mechanical integration, reduce wiring time, and remove the need for DC switching points.
  • Flexibility - Another benefit of the distributed microinverter design is the potential for installations to be expanded over time. An initial set of solar panels can be installed and additional solar panels added as needs and budgets grow without requiring the replacement of a large centralized inverter.
