Why install a Solar+Plus?
Solar PV system inverters have to increase their supplied voltage, by typically 4 volts, to be able to push the generated energy against supplied national grid energy around your property and if not used back onto the national grid. Typically if the energy supplied to a solar PV inverter rises to 253V, the inverter cannot push the generated energy over this and so enters ‘over voltage mode’.
PV generation is typically halted for 5 minutes (depending on inverter settings) after which time the inverter checks to see whether the incoming voltage is now below 253V so it can begin generation again. If it is still above 253V it will re enter ‘over voltage mode’.
NOTE: No electricity from your solar PV is generated whilst your inverter is in ‘over voltage mode’.
So the Solar+Plus when installed, monitors the incoming supply voltage to the PV inverter. The National Grid voltage is not constant and suffers from surges, when the Nation Grid voltage exceeds 253V the Solar+Plus disconnects the PV inverter from the national Grid, allowing the Solar PV inverter to avoid going into over voltage mode. This allows the inverter to be able to continue to operate and generate electricity from the PV array for longer.
As well as keeping your PV inverter out of over voltage mode, when the incoming voltage is below 253V The Solar+Plus is still working, utilising a transformer to step down the incoming voltage.
This lessens the output requirement of your inverter, which has to increase their supplied voltage to be able to push generated energy against supplied energy, reducing the workload on your inverter.
