How to detect PID on your PV plant?

Drone inspectieCharacteristic for PV plants is that they will underperform as a result of Potential Induced Degradation or PID. This phenomenon occurs on all types of PV plants, often without the owner of the installation being aware of it. PID implies that solar modules are subjected to accelerated efficiency losses and therefore don't achieve the expected [...]

What makes the PIDbox solutions of iLumen different from other PID solutions?

PIDbox Mini

Our Energy Advisors are frequently asked in which sense the PIDbox of iLumen is different from other PID solutions in the market. The answer could not be any more straightforward. The PIDbox of iLumen increases the efficiency of PV modules and extends their lifetime. When installing a PIDbox, efficiency losses due to Potential Induced Degradation are cured […]

What is the lifetime of an inverter?

Inverter Solar panels

In addition to the panels themselves, the inverter is a key component of a PV system. This device is responsible for converting direct current (DC) from the solar panels into alternating current (AC), compatible with the electricity grid and also for yield maximization (MPPT’s). But what are the characteristics of an inverter? An overview. LIFETIME […]

Extend the lifetime of your PV system


The PIDbox prevents your solar panels from efficiency losses due to Potential Induced Degradation (PID). Moreover, this device extends the lifetime of your PV system. When sun shines on your solar panels, only a part of the radiation is converted into electricity. Another part is lost as heat. The higher the efficiency of your solar panels, […]
