APS micro inverter technology provides significant advantages to conventional Solar PV design with experts predicting an unquestionable shift toward the technology for residential solar power over the coming years.
Unquestionable advantages include maximised energy yield and flexibility with design and installation, optimal performance in non-ideal conditions and low DC voltage.
Micro Inverters provide power management to individual panels (or groups of two panels) which differs from conventional solar systems. Where conventional systems can sustain signficiant power loss of the entire array from module failure or shading, a micro inverter system will only affect the panel in question while the remaining panels still function at maximum efficiency. A micro inverter is a minature inverter which powers only one or two panels opposed to one large inverter at ground level powering an entire array. Each micro inverter is placed on the roof, normally under the solar panels it manages.
