Whitepaper: SMA - PV inverter performance in desert-like locations
The stress imposed by sandstorms can be especially severe, as the very fine dust can penetrate even the smallest openings, potentially causing problems within the interior of the inverter, the key component in any PV system. This fine sand and dust settling on an inverter’s sensitive electronics represents an enormous potential risk to the operation and longevity of the entire PV plant.
The Sunny Central CP integrated OptiCool™ system eliminates this problem, as proven by SMA’s sand and dust tests. SMA subjected the Sunny Central CP to intensive testing in order to demonstrate that Sunny Central CP inverters are engineered for outdoor use in conditions where dust and sand is prevalent in the ambient air.
