Solar power production is affected by various factors such as module mismatch, 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.
Enphase increases your solar system's revenue by up to 25 percent. Because the Ontario Power Authority pays system owners based on energy production, the ability of the Enphase Microinverter System to harvest 5-25 percent more energy than traditional inverter systems directly translates into higher revenue.
The Enphase Energy Microinverter System solves solar power challenges by performing Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) at each solar module. 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 module. In contrast, centralized inverter’s MPPT algorithm sees the entire solar power system as a single module, and responds to the lowest production numbers it detects.
