Inverter Selection Issue - Current in A too high?


Recommended Posts


I'm just getting started with PV*Sol. I'm creating a project with 2 strings of panels of Sunpro SP400-108M10. Comprised of 1 x string of 8 panels in series and 1 x sting of 12 panels in series. I have selected an inverter which is a Solax X1-hybrid 6.0 G4 which has 2 MPPs. I have assigned each string to its own MPP and I'm seeing Red Cross on the Inverter selection. Clicking on the cross shows an error against the Inverter at the "Current in A" graphic. In red text it says Current under STC: 26 (while Max. Input Current: 16 and Max. short circuit current: 20). 

I have asked for advice from the manufacturer and an electrician and they seem to think the current should not be as high as 26 as the strings are connected to different MPPs. Can you clarify whether the current is correct or not? Shouldn't the current be halved essentially if I'm connecting the strings to 2 MPPs? Please see attached images.

Hello obikerui,

thank you for taking the time for reporting this case to us.
The current of 26 A is correct, but the maximum input current of the inverter was entered incorrectly in our database. It should be 32 A and not 16 A. Our database team has already corrected the value and it will be corrected with the next database update, which is expected to be released tomorrow.

Kind regards
