SOLARBUILDERMAG.COM | 51 We b i n a r S e r i e s 2018 Webinar Utility-Scale String Design Wednesday, June 20, 2 PM EST Presented by Produced by When designing a large site one consideration is String or Central. Both have well defined benefits. Historically, the large utility-scale sites have mainly relied upon central inverters. Now a third option, the Virtual Central, is paving the way for string inverters into this space. Higher powered string inverters, longer strings at 1500VDC and better communication options make these string inverters viable candidates for large projects. In order to know which architecture to choose, first you need to know the benefits and drawbacks of distributed string, virtual central and central systems. One style may not fit all, but the right inverter can fit into multiple architectures. In this webinar, we will discuss the benefits and disadvantages to both the distributed and centralized string architectures and how the design choice affects installers, developers and site owners.
