Yes, you read that right. SMA has a Sunny Boy inverter that reduces the effects of partial shading (and we don’t mean our new micro inverter). Patented in 2008 and introduced to the U.S. last year, SMA’s OptiTrac™ Global Peak MPPT made its debut in the new Sunny Boy TL-US inverter series. Using sophisticated IV curve sweeps at periodic intervals, OptiTrac Global Peak is able to significantly reduce the effects of partial shading on a PV array. This webinar will provide an in-depth look at this special feature and how to talk to customers about it. Rounding out the seminar is a live demonstration of the process in action.

SMA’s shade tolerant tracking is just one of the high-return, lower-risk features that allows this string inverter to compete with module-level devices.
