Step 2 - Planning the Roof

How to design with SolarEdge
String lengths
 
Take the max watts on a string below, then divide it by your panel wattage and round down.

Orientation is not cruicial with SolarEdge as you have an optimiser on every panel, so they all have their own MPPTs.

Remember you need a minimum of 6-8 optimisers+panels in light for the string to function well.

60V optimisers include P401/S440/S500 - 80V optimisers include P505/S500B

Mounting Optimisers
CAUTION: Avoid the two most common mistakes when mounting DC optimisers.
  1. NEVER fix with a rattle gun/impact driver as they damage the optimiser - use a torque wrench or drill
  2. ALWAYS leave a gap between the optimiser and the rail, as per clearances, to allow heat dissipation

Step 3 - Commissioning with Setapp

Set the Grid code to Region A in NSW/ACT/QLD/VIC

Country Grid Code

From Dec 18th 2021, under 4777.2:2020 inverters need to be commissioned to "Region A" for small grid connected systems in NSW/ACT/SA/QLD and VIC.

Do NOT leave them on the shipping default - "Australia".
