The heart of the system is the Enphase IQ8 microinverter which has a very fast ARM processor. With the speed of the new processor, a single microinverter is capable of outputting a grid signal and responding quickly enough to loads coming online and offline (20 ns response time) that a stable AC grid is formed.
At first release, the IQ8 is ONLY going to be released into an energy storage system (Encharge 3). Enphase will NOT be releasing a standalone “rooftop” microinverter for PV modules until later in the future (2020).
In summary, the core devices are:
IQ8 – Multimode inverter inside battery
Encharge – AC coupled, integrated storage with IQ8 inside
Enpower 200G – acts as MID
AC Combiner 3C – integrated cell modem
