Enphase IQ7 Microinverters Make Solar More Efficient

Enphase is an Australian solar company which produces, stores, controls and analyses the solar energy acquisition and consumption in your home. It’s a comprehensive system that applies convergence of several pieces of equipment. Systems provide data read outs and evaluative tools to the home owner.

The company has recently released a new generation of microinverters. These, when installed in sync with the rest of the system, promises to make solar energy acquisition far more efficient.

A microinverter sits beneath a solar module and converts DC power to AC power. Solar cells trap energy in DC form and feed this to the inverter. The inverter converts energy to AC form for use in home appliances, lighting and air conditioning.

The IQ7 (seventh generation) Microinverter extends the reliability standards set forth by previous generations [of microinverters]. It can undergo over a million hours of power-on testing. The manufacturers boast the IQ 7 Microinverters are easy to install, with a lightweight and simple design. The device is optimized for high-powered 60-cell modules, which make it compatible with most available Enphase solar batteries.

It complies with advanced grid support, voltage and frequency ride through requirements. The seventh generation microinverters are powered by the sun. The seventh generation platform achieves the highest efficiency for module level power electronics.

Solar batteries trap electricity in AC form after it has been converted by the Microinverter. Energy produced at midday can be saved to use in the afternoon and evening. Natural lighting reduces energy consumption during these hours. Thus, the battery is an extremely useful tool to increase reliance on sustainable energy solutions.

You can monitor the energy consumption patterns of your house and delegate stored solar energy accordingly with an Enphase system. The unique software defined architecture offers broadcast of performance information to software using the WiFi. You can monitor your system’s performance at any time and provide diagnostics for solar professionals during maintenance call-outs.

If your solar panel system is getting long in the tooth, consider upgrading your microinverter to an Enphase Microinverter. Essential NRG supplies Enphase microinverters all across Sydney.

We’ll happily install all smart grid ready Enphase IQ systems when you call us and ask about them. We recommend home owners with solar panels invest in maintenance at least once every 12 months. We may recommend you upgrade your Microinverters following an inspection of your solar unit.
