Solar inverters are electronic products, which are limited by internal electronic components and must have a certain lifespan. The life of a Solar inverter is determined by the quality of the product, the installation and use environment, and the later operation and maintenance. So how to improve the service life of the inverter through correct installation and later operation and maintenance?
Precautions for the installation and use of the inverter
1. The inverter must be installed in a well-ventilated space with good ventilation to the outside world. If it must be installed in a closed space, an air duct and exhaust fan or an air conditioner must be installed. It is strictly forbidden to install the inverter in a closed box.
2. The installation location of the inverter should avoid direct sunlight as much as possible. If the inverter is installed outdoors, it is better to install it under the eaves on the back side or under the solar modules. There are eaves or modules above the inverter to block it. If it can only be installed in an open place, it is recommended to install a sunshade and rain shelter above the inverter.
3. Whether it is a single inverter installation or multiple inverter installations, it must be installed in accordance with the installation space size given by the inverter manufacturer to ensure that the inverter has sufficient ventilation and heat dissipation space and operation space for later operation and maintenance.
4. nstall the inverter as far away as possible from high-temperature areas such as boilers, fuel-fired hot air blowers, heating pipes, and air-conditioning outdoor air outlets.
The external environment in which the inverter operates
The external environment in which the inverter operates is also an important factor affecting the life of the inverter. At present, the protection level of string inverters on the market can reach IP65 or even IP66. In many places, because the dirt falls on the radiator, it will affect the function of the radiator. Dust, leaves, sediment and other fine objects may also enter the air duct of the inverter, which will also affect the heat dissipation, thereby affecting the service life. In this case, it is particularly important to regularly clean the dirt on the inverter or cooling fan so that the inverter has good cooling conditions.
