Problems:

  • Failed 600 Volt inverters with no ‘like’ replacements available
  • Replacement 1000 Volt inverters incompatible as they require higher string voltage
  • String upgrade expensive
  • Inadequate monitoring information

Solution:

  • BOOST Platform raises operating voltage to be compatible with new inverters
  • Replace 600 V inverters with 1000 V inverters
  • Restringing not required
  • Provide high resolution monitoring and machine learning diagnostics

Impact:

  • Energy production improvement through inverter replacement
  • Revenue improvement through situational awareness provided by monitoring
  • 32% internal rate of return (IRR) on string imbalance correction alone
  • Revenue improvement through situational awareness provided by monitoring
