What is a PV Voltage Protector?

2023/06/16 丨Technical

Photovoltaic (PV) systems are growing in popularity as a renewable energy source as people seek to reduce their carbon. The growing demand for sustainable energy has led to the development of increasingly efficient and reliable PV systems. However, as with any other electrical system, PV systems are susceptible to voltage fluctuations and surges. This is where PV voltage protectors come in.


What is a Photovoltaic (PV) Voltage Protector?


A photovoltaic (PV) voltage protector is a device used to protect solar panels from voltage surges, also known as a surge protector. It helps protect solar panels and solar systems from potential damage from voltage fluctuations or surges. It is also a critical piece of equipment used to protect solar panel investments and secure the entire solar system from unpredictable power surges.


Importance of PV Voltage Protectors


There are various types of voltage protectors that can be used on photovoltaic systems such as surge protectors, overvoltage protectors, and undervoltage protectors. Any protector is designed to protect against a specific type of voltage irregularity and provide multiple protection functions.


Surge protectors are the most commonly used type of voltage protector in PV systems. They are installed between the photovoltaic panels and the inverter and are designed to limit voltage surges that may occur due to lightning strikes or other electrical disturbances. Surge protectors work by diverting excess voltage from the PV panels into the grounding system.


Overvoltage protectors are designed to protect against voltage spikes that occur due to sudden changes in the electrical system. They work by regulating the voltage of the photovoltaic system, ensuring that it receives a consistent and safe power level.


Undervoltage protectors are designed to protect against voltage drops that may occur due to power outages or other electrical disturbances. They work by regulating the voltage of the photovoltaic system, ensuring that it receives a consistent and safe power level.


Matismart New Release Product MT53PV


Matismart MT53PV photovoltaic voltage protector is used to detect and judge the voltage of the photovoltaic power generation side. When the photovoltaic side voltage is overvoltage or undervoltage, it will automatically open with a delay, when the voltage is normal, it will automatically close, and it will automatically delay tripping. The circuit breaker has a rated insulation voltage of 400V, is suitable for AC 50Hz, a rated working voltage of 230V, and a rated current of 63A or less. For more information about the MT53PV product, you can watch the Youtube video or contact us for more technical parameters.




In summary, photovoltaic voltage protectors are critical components used to protect solar energy systems from potentially damaging electrical surges and voltage spikes. By protecting photovoltaic panels, inverters, and other electrical components from voltage fluctuations and surges, these devices help maintain the efficiency and longevity of the system. With correct installation and selection, it can provide effective protection for the entire life cycle of your solar system.
