The Matt-e Solar PV+3 unit is a three phase voltage optimiser and grid voltage monitor unit and can increase the total power generation from a solar PV installation and its inverter when installed in an area with a high mains power supply voltage.
Solar PV inverters generate at a higher AC output voltage than the nominal grid supply in order to be able to export onto the grid. The increase is typically 4-6% of the nominal voltage available. If at peak generation times the nominal mains voltage is above 246Vac single phase, the solar PV inverter has to shutdown as part of its over-voltage protection settings, losing you potential revenue from solar generation.
A Matt-e three phase Solar Plus unit can increase the solar PV output generation by up to 20% as it keeps your system generating for longer periods by reducing the supply to the Solar PV inverter. The device can be fitted to both new and existing solar PV systems. Running the solar PV inverter within its input DC voltage window also reduces heat build-up and stress and helps to prolong the working life of the inverter. The typical return on investment is within 2 years.
