SMA’s OptiTrac Global Peak – advanced shade mitigation

This post was originally published in 2014. The tips and techniques explained may be outdated.

SMA’s OpriTrac Global Peak is an exclusive, groundbreaking feature, available with the Sunny Tripower and Sunny Boy TL-US with Secure Power Supply. To ensure the greatest possible energy production, inverters with OptiTrac Global Peak track the global maximum power point when partial shade is present, nearly eliminating energy losses from early-morning and late-afternoon shading.

Curious about how a string inverter can recover nearly all of the lost power created by partial shade? Take a look!
