Control Maximum Active Power Generation

Modified on Wed, 04 Oct 2023 at 02:13 PM

Solis - Active Power Control Setup



This function is used to set the active power generation output of the inverter. 

The inverter has two settings for this “Set Output Power” and “Output_P with Restore”. 

Always select the settings Output_P with Restore - This is the setting that is maintained even when the inverter has lost power (kept in flash). 

Do not select - Set Output Power – This is just a temporary setting (kept in RAM) that is lost when the inverter goes to sleep at night.

The setting is percent-based.




It is the desired active power limit divided by the nominal power of the inverter, as shown in the equation below.

For example, this means if a user wants the inverter to only generate a maximum of 3.6kVa (for EEG2012, 70% of the kWp of the PV array) and the inverter has a nominal rating of 5kVA. The user must calculate the percent as shown below.

Therefore, the user must enter 72% into the interface on the inverter.



The user interface for the Solis inverters are similar for all our ranges. 

Each inverter has a keypad shown in the figure below.

  • The DOWN key changes which digit is selected 
  • The ENTER key saves the new value


  • Once value is set press ESC to return back to home page
