Introducing the 3800W model of SolarEdge's cool new inverter product line . . . the SE3800H-US with SolarEdge's HD Wave technology!
If you're a solar PV newcomer, than a brief intro to SolarEdge inverter is due! SolarEdge split 2 core functions of a typical solar inverter into 2 devices. MPPT (maximum power point tracking) and voltage management happen at the individual panel level with SolarEdge's DC optimizer (sold separately--see the listing on our SolarEdge page). But the inversion of DC to AC happens centrally at the inverter itself (in this case the SE3800H-US). The result is a very efficient, well-designed, very popular alternative to typical string inverters and microinverters.
So what's new in the new HD-Wave line up? SolarEdge re-designed its inversion processing by using "distributed switching and powerful DSP processing." The result is a clean pure sine wave without the heavy processing and cooling elements. This makes for a dramatically lighter box to hang--smaller and 50% lighter at 25 pounds. This makes the SolarEdge HD-Wave inverters easier and faster to install as well!
Winner of the 2016 Intersolar award, SolarEdge also announced that its HD-Wave inverters became the first inverters that the California Energy Commission (CEC) awarded with a 99% weighted efficiency rating!
The SolarEdge HD-Wave inverters (including the SE3800H-US) provide 25 years of free power production monitoring, a 12 year standard warranty and enables 155% DC/AC oversizing!
