Export Limitation & Metering

Export Limitation

SolarEdge offers an export limitation option, integrated in the SolarEdge inverter firmware, which dynamically adjusts PV power production. This allows you to use more energy for self-consumption when the loads are high, while maintaining the export limit also when the loads are low.

Export Limitation Benefits

  • Highly competitive cost grid limiting device

  • Set any limit imposed by the network restriction

  • Enables larger installations and increases self-consumption

  • Fast response time –follows rapid power changes (<1 sec)

  • Failsafe operation protects the grid

Metering

  • The inverter can read a meter installed either at the grid connection point or at the load consumption point

  • Two types of meters may be used:

    • An RS485 meter that connects to the RS485 terminal block of the SolarEdge inverter

    • A meter with an S0 interface and an S0 meter adapter cable available from SolarEdge; For more details click here

Metering Benefits - Consumption Monitoring

  • Monitoring the electricity meter allows accurate information on loads and self-consumption

  • System owners can reduce their electricity bills by changing consumption behavior
