High Performance Solar Power Surge Protectors

APS LLC | Solar Power Surge Protectors

Solar Power Surge Protectors have become an industry-wide Necessity... SPDs are no longer just an optional accessory.

The Solar Power industry continues to improve it's technology for Commercial and Residential Solar Power Systems.

As a result, the need for proper surge protection to maintain consistent and reliable power can not be overstated.

Solar energy designs are sensitive electrical systems composed of intricate electronics that are susceptible to disruptions and damage. Surge Protective Devices (SPDs) in conjunction with good grounding and bonding are essential for dependable operation.

Eliminating unnecessary disruptions, downtime, equipment repair, replacement and damage caused by transient voltage can be accomplished when applying High Performance Solar Surge Protection SPDs.

However, they need to be the Right SPD placed in the Right Location to deliver the Right Results.

Active Solar Power Systems

Active Solar Power Systems are often called Photovoltaic Systems or PV Systems for short. These systems are the classic solar panel (solar power cells) type array that convert sunlight to direct current (DC). The direct current is then converted via inverters to alternating current (AC).

Active designs are used for both commercial solar farms and home solar power system applications. 

Active solar systems, by design, create numerous surge related exposure points with the high probability for damage to occur. These points need to be protected. Active systems are especially vulnerable to large electrical transients. The primary danger being lightning activity.

Solar Power Surge Protector Recommendations

If surge protective measures are not properly addressed, solar system equipment, as well as the electrical equipment fed by them, will be at risk from unnecessary, preventable and costly damage.

Placing the Right SPD, in the Right Location, with the Right Installation provides the best solar system surge protection.

A layered protection approach on the power side and data line protection on the signal side using High Quality Surge Protective Devices is strongly recommended. Layered or cascade protection is recommended by IEEE and maintains best practice when defending sensitive electronics and critical electrical equipment.

Recommended SPD Applications:

  • Building Main Service Panel (AC)
  • Combiner Boxes (DC)                                                                          
  • Power Inverter: Both Input (DC) and Output (AC)
  • Charge Controllers (DC)
  • Data/Communication Lines
  • Battery Banks (DC)
