The growing potential for MLPE in utility-scale solar

SPONSORED: In the last decade, the PV market has gone through some incredible transformations. SolarEdge's Lior Handelsman argues that one new shift could be the use of module-level power electronics for utility-scale solar plants.

GoodWe launches smart solution for module-level monitoring & rapid shutdown and optimization

Following last year’s announced cooperation with Tigo, PV inverter manufacturer GoodWe is now launching the DNS and SDT rapid shutdown inverter series with MLPE functionalities, a streamlined solution for the optimization of energy yields on the module level which is perfectly adequate for complex system designs and partial shadings – using optimizers on shaded modules recovers an average of 36% energy loss due to mismatch.
