SolarEdge Bags Intersolar Award for its HD-Wave Technology Inverter
S olarEdge has bagged Intersolar Award in the Photovoltaics category for its HD-Wave technology inverter. SolarEdge’s HD-Wave inverter technology is a novel power conversion topology that significantly decreases inverter size and weight while achieving record efficiency. By employing distributed switching and advanced digital processing to synthesize a clean, high-definition sine wave, HD-Wave inverters have less than half the heat dissipation, 16x less magnetics, and 2.5x less cooling components than current SolarEdge inverters.
“Functioning as the brain of PV systems, inverters are integral in accelerating the pace towards grid parity and advancing PV proliferation,” said Guy Sella, CEO and Chairman of SolarEdge. The HD-Wave technology inverter is already available in select locations. SolarEdge plans for a more extensive rollout throughout 2016. “SolarEdge is honoured to be given this esteemed Intersolar Award for our HD-Wave technology inverter. Representing a significant transition in inverter technology, the use of digital processing in our HDWave inverter technology will allow us to more quickly improve inverter size, efficiency, and reliability than the current industry standard”, stated Lior Handelsman, VP Marketing and Product Strategy of SolarEdge.
