Enecsys’ second gen microinverter claims 33% improvement in maximum power output

  •   The Enecsys second generation microinverter is currently offered in single versions in increments from 240W up to 300W maximum AC output.
    The Enecsys second generation microinverter is currently offered in single versions in increments from 240W up to 300W maximum AC output, with a microinverter industry-leading peak efficiency of 96.5%.

Enecsys has introduced its second generation microinverter platform, including a new communications gateway and online monitoring service. The microinverter technology is said to power scale up to 300W AC enabling the use of many high powered 60-cell modules, providing maximum energy harvest in the smallest footprint.

Problem

System owners, integrators, installers and financiers backing third-party owned systems need to place a premium on the ability to maximise energy harvest to provide sufficient return on investment (ROI).

Solution

The Enecsys second generation microinverter is claimed to dramatically boost energy harvest through a combination of improved efficiency and increased maximum output power ability; yielding up to a claimed 33% improvement in maximum power output over the prior Enecsys offering. This is offered in two distinct packages: one specifically designed to respond to integration opportunities across a wide range of panel manufacturers who offer integrated AC modules as well as a traditional rack mount version enabling custom installer configurations. It is also redesigned in a new patented form factor with an integrated mounting method, making it better suited for integration by OEM partners into AC module product families.

Applications

It can power scale up to 300W AC enabling the use of many high powered 60-cell modules and integrate into many AC module product families.

Platform

The Enecsys second generation microinverter is currently offered in single versions in increments from 240W up to 300W maximum AC output, with a microinverter industry-leading peak efficiency of 96.5%. A simplified cabling solution enables improved installer productivity with faster and thus lower cost installations. Enecsys Gateway offers field configurability and upgradability along with the Enecsys Monitoring System that allows system owners and installers the ability to monitor energy production on a panel-by-panel basis in real time and proactively and precisely address any maintenance issues.

Availability

April 2013 onwards.

Publications

  • Photovoltaics International 23rd Edition

    This issue of Photovoltaics International, our 23rd, offers key insights into some of the technologies that are ready to move from lab to fab in support of these goals. ISC Konstanz offer a glimpse of what the low-cost, high-efficiency solar cells of the future might look like. On page 35 the institute’s authors give an overview of what they call Konstanz’ “technology zoo”, encompassing their so-called BiSoN, PELICAN and ZEBRA cell concepts, all of which are aimed at increasing energy yield at the lowest possible cost.
