Yesterday’s solar arrays — based on a 50-year-old serial, high voltage architecture — are prone to single points of failure, are heavily impacted by dirt and shading, and expose people to unnecessary high voltage risks.
In each Ten K System, Modules are also connected in parallel. Utilizing a utility grade connection, the modules operate independently of each other, ensuring maximum system uptime and optimum system performance. We uniquely apply a parallel architecture to the Redundant Inverter Bus (RIB), providing unmatched inverter performance and reliability.
Because of the inherently redundant architecture, the inverters only operate at half the duty cycle of any other inversion solution and any single failure will have no material impact on system production.
Module Integrated electronics set the bus voltage between 35-59 volts, perfect for low voltage inverters and conventional storage products. Round trip storage losses are dramatically reduced. No active controls are required for the system to operate at maximum efficiency.
A group of microinverters creates a fault tolerant inversion unit eliminating the risk of an inverter failure impacting system performance.
