Large scale solar is starting to enter relative old age for the first time. Specifically, many 600-volt PV plants are now reaching five to 10 years of operation or more and are starting to show signs of their age. One of the primary, particularly debilitating symptoms they are presenting: The central inverters that were initially installed in these plants are beginning to fail with a high degree of regularity and now need to be replaced.
In a new white paper, the Alencon Systems’ technical team discusses the challenges PV plant owners need to understand in replacing failed 600-V inverters and different strategies for doing so.
