PV Plant Retrofits
Get More from What You’ve Got!
PV plants performance can diminish over the years for a variety of reasons, from module degradation to a host of other causes. Alencon technology can help breathe new life into your PV plant by maximizing power output from your existing modules and decreasing line losses to your central inverter. Alencon’s DC-DC optimizer solution represents a cost effective way to upgrade your existing PV plant to increase the amount of energy it is producing. Our DC-DC optimizers will provide you string-wise maximum power point tracking (MPPT) on up to four separate strings at once. This powerful functionality is particularly helpful when optimizing power across strings that may have degraded differently over time, have different power ratings or are even from different manufacturers. Additionally, our retrofit solution lets you step-up voltage to medium voltage DC (MVDC), so you’ll be able to drastically reduce line losses and retain more of the energy you’ve harvested from your modules.
Our technology will allow you to step up voltage from lower voltage modules, which in addition to reducing losses can also help you get more out of your inverter. With our PV monitoring software you will be able to see, right away, where problems are happening so you’ll know where to send maintenance crews in advance.
