I’ve touched on inverter concepts in the past, but I’ve only talked about “optimizers” in passing. I see lots of questions about these on the ‘net, so I think it’s time for a little intro to the two market leaders in this space. Those happen to be Tigo, the incumbent here in North America, and SolarEdge, a powerhouse in Europe. They both take different approaches to the task, each with its own ups and downs, and I’ll try to cover these in this article.
