NEC 2014 690.12 specifies a requirement for SMA rapid shutdown of solar systems installed on buildings [Building Installed Only]. The optional SMA rapid shutdown is available below. ⇩ Add one module per panel. [Click "Add to Cart" change quanity from 4 to XX. IE: 20 panel kit, change quanity to 20 modules then click update]
The Sunny Boy is a transformerless solar inverter which converts the direct current of a solar array into grid-compliant alternating current and feeds it into the utility grid. The Sunny Boy is a multi-string inverter that has two input areas, A and B, each with its own MPP tracker. This continually determines the maximum power point and controls the voltage on the solar modules accordingly. The two separate MPP trackers make it possible to connect different solar strings to input areas A and B. The solar strings may vary in the number of solar modules, their orientation to the sun and shading. We strongly recommend tasks described in the installation of the solar system may only be performed by qualified persons. The qualified person must have the following skills: knowledge of how an inverter works and is operated, training in how to deal with the dangers and risks associated with installing and using electrical devices and knowledge of and adherence to the solar plans and installation instructions provided and all safety precautions.
Production = 1,488 kW Per Month ● Assumptions: 310 Watt STC Panel Rating [Factory Rating] @ 5 Sun Hours (Average).
SMA Sunny Boy SP series inverter comes standard with advanced features like it's off-grid capabilities and full grid management functionality. Solar systems are required by code to disconnect from the electrical grid when the power goes out. Traditionally, that meant your system would deliver zero power to your home, but not anymore. SMA has pioneered the Secure Power Supply (SPS), which will continue to deliver power from your solar system to your home when the sun is shining, even when the power goes out. A dedicated wall outlet is wired directly to the inverter, providing security and ensuring power is available when it’s needed most. SPS delivers up to 2,000 Watts of opportunity power when the grid goes down and the sun is shining.
You can connect an external outlet and a switch to the inverter in order to activate the outlet. In case of a grid failure, the outlet supplies a load with current from the solar system. When the outlet is activated via the switch, the load is supplied with current from the solar system. The inverter automatically regulates the energy supply of the outlet depending on the solar irradiation on the solar system. When the outlet is activated and a load is supplied with current from the solar system, the inverter is disconnected from the utility grid and does not feed into the utility grid.
The Sunny Boy’s multiple independent input channels, each with SMA’s OptiTrac™ Global Peak, mean hundreds of stringing configurations for flexible system design while solving the challenges of complex roofs and shading. The SMA Sunny Boy SP inverter series feature simplified design which means reduced costs for residential solar installations. The Sunny Boy US features an integrated DC disconnect, simplifying the installation and providing a safe system operation.
CA Rule 21 currently governs CA & HI Rule 14H utility interconnection for all net energy metering for all projects permitted and approved for interconnection. The change was designed to create a standard for inverters more capable of dealing with a volatile utility grid. Why is this needed? Utility companies are facing higher penetration rates of solar and in some cases are saturated and needed an additional low/high frequency ride-through. By using so called smart inverters the functionality keeps grid voltage from oscillating or acts like a shock absorber intended result is automatic stabilization of utiltiy grid voltage.
Line drawing questions or just stuck? No worries we have your back and will be here to help whenever you have questions about your purchased Kit. For orders larger than $2,000.00 a Technical Sales Team Group Captain will be assigned your account. Your Technical Advisors job is to coordinate all parts and pieces of your order and to work with you throughout the process. This support helps because we will be providing you with a single contact point to call with your questions. Your technical support contact does not replace the maufactures warranty technical support. DIY means you accept the responsiblity of reading and following the line diagram and other installation documents prior to tackling the installation.
NOTE: For detail support after installation customer must be willing or have the ability to connect to the SMA Smart Connected monitoring platform. The monitoring platform software is free but requires WiFi connnection to the inverter.
