Virtual Central approach of PV string inverters - a cost benefit


Centrally installed string inverters in a PV system offer many advantages over distributed inverters at the end of each PV string:

  • Higher flexibility in PV plant design
  • Suitability for larger PV modules
  • Smart service and operation
  • Faster installation and commissioning
  • Superior yield and performance ratio

What if you could combine these advantages with a cost benefit from the outset? 

A thorough comparison shows CAPEX savings between panel and transformer of 8 to 10% and higher. Even if you use DC combiners, the bottom line is that the "Virtual Central" layout saves you money due to less AC wiring and lower AC voltages.
