Post subject:  effect of Power Factor in maximum DC power

Hello,

I have a question about DC power and the Power Factor, why the maximum DC power is reduced when I set the power factor 0.9?
I thought that the power factor only affects Active power in AC, and the maximum DC power depends basically on the maximum voltage and maximum current at the inverter input.

Thank you for your support in advance

Regards

Th PNom limitation is applied on the apparent energy, therefore earlier.
This is fully explained in the help "Project design > Grid-connected system definition > Power Factor"
