The solar industry is currently witnessing a rapid expansion, necessitating the utilization of high-performance and top-quality solar inverters. Notably, there has been a recent market shift from 600W-output microinverters to 800W-output microinverters, particularly in the European market. As a renowned authority in the field, BENY Inverters is pleased to share valuable insights regarding the advantages associated with this transition.
Microinverters, responsible for converting direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC), are installed beneath each solar panel. The popularity of 600W microinverters stems from their capability to perform low-voltage maximum power point tracking (MPPT), their high level of safety, reliability, and ease of installation, making them particularly suitable for solar panels with shading or irregular layouts, such as balcony applications. An important development concerning microinverter balcony applications is the German government’s plan to increase the capacity limit of microinverters. According to the EU’s “Requirements for Generators,” power generation equipment below 800W is not considered to have an impact on the grid. However, each EU member state can establish its own regulations. Currently, Germany has set the capacity limit at 600W, but the government plans to raise it to 800W. According to experts, this increase is only a matter of time, and it is expected to be implemented before the end of 2023.
Apart from regulatory support, the demand for higher-power microinverters has driven the market towards 800W microinverters. The main reason for this shift is cost savings. Despite the higher initial costs, 800W microinverters are highly suitable for high-power PV modules, such as two 400-550 Wp panels, as they offer greater efficiency and power density compared to using two 600W microinverters required for two 300-460 Wp panels. This translates to long-term cost reduction. By achieving higher energy production with fewer inverters, 800W microinverters reduce the overall cost of photovoltaic systems and the levelized cost of energy (LCOE), while improving the investment return rate (IRR). Furthermore, due to their excellent performance, 800W microinverters have gained wide recognition in the market, leading to increased sales volume and market share.
The transition from 600W to 800W microinverters provides cost advantages that align with market demands and technological trends related to higher-power PV panels. Over time, 800W microinverters are progressively becoming the mainstream choice in the market as they continue to undergo continuous upgrades and cost reductions, eventually supplanting 600W microinverters as the dominant product.
In addition to cost savings, upgrading from 600W to 800W microinverters offers a multitude of benefits, including improved performance, enhanced flexibility, and reduced maintenance costs. With their higher power density, 800W microinverters are better suited for larger solar systems, resulting in increased energy production. Furthermore, they exhibit greater flexibility, enabling compatibility with a wider range of solar panel configurations, thereby making them ideal for larger solar installations. Moreover, due to their enhanced reliability and reduced quantity in power-output plants of similar capacity, 800W microinverters require less maintenance compared to 600W microinverters.
Upgrading to an 800W microinverter brings multiple benefits, including cost savings, improved performance, enhanced flexibility, and reduced maintenance costs. As the demand for solar power systems continues to grow, this transition is becoming more widespread, offering an economically efficient solution to meet the increasing energy needs of modern society.
