How to Optimally Size Solar Inverters to Achieve Higher Performance

The Mercom India webinar on the topic will be held on December 12, 2023, at 3 pm IST


Mercom India will host a webinar on December 12, 2023, where industry experts will discuss the factors involved in optimally sizing solar photovoltaic (PV) inverters for diverse locations and temperatures and achieving higher performance.

The webinar – Optimal Sizing of PV Inverters for Robust Performance in High Ambient Temperatures – will also cover the approaches that must be considered to achieve effective cost, efficiency, and reliability of solar inverters.

As solar power installations continue to grow in the country, the need to address grid stability issues has gained prominence to effectively manage the unpredictable and intermittent nature of renewable energy sources.

According to Mercom’s recently released Q3 2023 India Solar Market Update, the cumulative solar capacity exceeded 69 GW as of September 2023, with nearly 77 GW of utility-scale solar projects in the pipeline.

Solar inverters play a major role in managing power generation in high ambient temperatures. It remains crucial to size the solar photovoltaic inverters optimally to maintain their efficiency and performance.

The panelists in the webinar are Dipak Patel, Director Technical, InSolare Energy; Ashish Upadhyay, COO, Essens Renewable; Sunil Panigrahi, Country Manager, Hopewind; and Anuj Mathur, Regional Manager – North India, Hopewind.

Priya Sanjay, Managing Director, Mercom India, will moderate the session.

The webinar will be held from 3 pm IST. Viewers can register for the webinar here.

Mercom’s report noted a gradual shift towards central inverters over string inverters for solar projects in the country. Prices for power conditioning units fell 3.8% quarter-over-quarter.

The discussion will cover factors to be considered when choosing the right inverters – string, central, or micro inverters, the relationship between inverter and module capacities, and string configuration to ensure optimized performance in high temperatures.

Mercom’s last webinar highlighted the pivotal role that PV inverters play in maximizing energy generation from advanced technology modules in the Indian solar market.
