High Performance Solar Surge Protection

With Numerous Exposure Points For Lightning Strike Damage, Commercial Solar Farm PV Arrays Need High Performance Surge Protection. Get the Right Gear!High Lightning Strike Risk: PV Arrays on Commercial Solar Farm

Solar Surge Protection is no longer an optional accessory.

It's an industry-wide Necessity...

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 good bonding are essential.

Eliminating or reducing unnecessary disruptions, downtime, equipment repair, replacement and catastrophic events caused by transient voltage can be accomplished with high performance solar surge protection SPDs.

However, it needs 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 system design, by it's very nature, creates numerous exposure points with the high probability for serious damage to occur. These points need to be protected. Active systems are especially vulnerable to large electrical transients. The primary danger is from lightning activity.

If protective measures are not properly addressed, the equipment being fed from the solar power system as well as the system itself will stay at risk for unnecessary 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 also the recommendation of the IEEE. This provides best practice when protecting 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)
