Decentralized? SMA has the right inverter concept for any PV plant
From kilowatt to megawatt, SMA is the sin- gle source manufacturer for the right solar inverter of every size and for every site. Thereby, the customer can choose among various plant concepts. While a central in- verter concept may clearly be the best solu- tion for one PV plant, conditions in another system, even a system similar in size, may require a decentralized concept.
You must always consider installation and plant operating costs in particular when de- ciding whether to opt for a centralized or decentralized plant structure. Under certain conditions, decentralized plant design has been shown to offer a range of advantages over centralized design. A few of the im- portant aspects typical of the power class above 100 kWp are noted in the following examples.
