Site planning is key to matching the perfect PV system architecture to the right jobsite, and software plays a big role in this. PVsyst is updating its latest software, PVsyst 6.43, to include Ampt’s DC String Optimizers, allowing users to model the performance benefits of said optimizers in large-scale PV systems. PVsyst’s softwareRead More

String optimizers, like this one from Ampt, put voltage and current limits on each string to achieve 100 percent longer strings without exceeding 1,000 volts.

How optimizers bridge the gap to 1,500-volt PV systems
