Current photovoltaic systems - Fundamental Problems

Current PV system architectures have the following drawbacks:

  • Shading can reduce output 40%
  • Soiling can reduce output 5-20%
  • Mismatch between panels can reduce output 15%
  • Centralized optimization reduces overall performance to the weakest panel
  • Smaller more expensive inverters required for installation variations

SMART-microinverter is the solution

Current photovoltaic systems - Safety Problems

Fire prevention and normal maintenance of solar arrays is currently hazardous with live panels

SMART-safety is the solution

Current photovoltaic systems - Information Problems

Centralized monitoring (if it exists) gives only gross alternating current output at the meter ACCURATE's SMART-system components directly address each of these shortcomings.

SMART-monitoring is the solution
