SolarEdge Energy Hub Inverters

The SolarEdge Energy Hub Inverters with Prism Technology build upon the excellent capabilities of the SolarEdge HD-Wave Genesis Inverter. It is designed to meet every home smart energy need.

SolarEdge Enables The Smart Energy Home

Outstanding 99% Inverter Efficiency

The Energy Hub inverter enables a total smart energy solution  with home automation and home power back-up. The inverter is used in conjunction with small electronic devices called power optimisers, which are attached to each panel. Together they overcome the limitations of traditional string inverters.

The SolarEdge Energy Hub inverters combined with the solar panel power optimisers, deliver increased safety compared to standard string inverters. They deliver more power and more savings for the homeowner. The solution is backed with monitoring to the panel level and meets every home energy need including:

  • Solar battery connection option
  • Home energy back-up options with solar batteries
  • Electric vehicle charging option
  • Integration and control of smart energy devices
  • Power production and consumption monitoring.
The Energy Hub Inverter Covers All the Smart Energy Needs of a Home.

The Prism Technology is the software that allows this functionality of easily connecting a range of products to the Energy Hub inverter. The inverter is ready for the future as SolarEdge develops and releases a growing range of smart energy devices.

Energy Hub Inverter Warranties

The Energy Hub comes with an enhanced 12-year warranty covering parts and labour. Many standard string inverters only have a 5+5-year warranty. The second five years just covers the inverter and it is up to the homeowner to cover the labour component of having the inverter replaced.

SolarEdge offer optional warranty upgrades covering parts and labour for the Energy Hub to 20 and 25-Years. SolarEdge cover the power optimisers with a 25-year warranty.

System Monitoring and Home Automation

The system monitoring platform and the mySolarEdge app provide full system monitoring of the Energy Hub inverter. The customer gets full visibility down to the individual solar panel. Customers can easily monitor energy production and consumption in real time and manage home automation.

Maximise Your Power Savings

  • Monitor power consumption so household usage can be shifted to match solar production times.
  • Maximise power bill savings by identifying unusual power consumption. This will control power usage from the grid and avoid power bill shock.
  • Manage and monitor solar battery power storage so you know when to expand home battery storage.
  • Manage Home Backup in the event of a power grid outage.

 

Control Smart Devices

  • The wireless Smart Energy Switch and Smart Socket Energy Sockets can be used to control electrical loads for pool pumps, air-con, lighting or other electrical appliances.
  • The wireless Smart Controller can automatically send excess power produced by the solar system to the hot water system for highly cost effective hot water.
  • Monitor and control electric vehicle charging.

 

Home Power Backup with Energy Hub and Battery Storage

The Energy Hub Inverter with Prism Technology has a new backup interface. When connected to a solar battery it can keep your home powered if the electricity grid goes down.

Next Generation Backup for the Home with Energy Hub. 1. Due with pending firmware upgrade.

The Solar Edge Energy DC-coupled solar battery solution has advantages compared to AC-coupled batteries. DC-coupling offers better performance and increased efficiency.  With DC here is only one  conversion – with AC there are three separate conversions.

For increased grid independence and grid outage capability the batteries can be stacked to increase capacity. A faster return on investment is the result with more PV and storage.

At present the Energy Hub supports the LG RESU10H and RESU16 H. The SoalrEdge solar battery is due for release toward the end of 2021.

Supporting DC oversizing of 200% the Energy Hub means more power production for battery storage and less “clipping”.

 

SolarEdge Energy Hub Advanced Safety Features

The SolarEdge inverter offers enhanced safety features compared to standard string inverters.

SafeDC: This is in-built into every SolarEdge inverter and power optimiser. With traditional string inverters when the inverter is shut down the solar panels continue to produce high voltage DC power. This results in dangerous high voltage DC power still in the system. With SolarEdge if the inverter is turned off or in the event of a grid power outage the SafeDC feature automatically reduces the voltage from each panel to 1 Volt DC making panels to touch safe to touch providing extra protection.

Arc Fault Protection: Arcing can be a source of fire ignition and the Energy hub inverter can detect and guard against electric arc faults and shut down the inverter.

Rapid Shutdown: this allows fast discharge of power so the voltage in the system is reduced to touch safe levels in 39 seconds.
