MPP Solar Inverter - Oversize the Solar?


New Member
So its common practice to oversize residential inverters, but is it ok to oversize the MPP Solar units, I cant help but feel they are a bit more sensitive?
Should I stay within the specs, or can I push certain areas?

MPPT Range 120-430V
Max PV input 5000W
Max PV input Voc 450V
Max PV input Current 18A

Solar Panel 315W

How many panels are you running?

From speaking with Ian, yes, you can over panel, but NOT over voltage.
