Hi,

Below is the screenshot of my SolarEdge data today at 1pm.
It seems the inverter production 11.48kWh (green box) is quite lower than the 12 total panels productions 12.77kWh (blue box).

The inverter DC/AC efficiency is that bad or I am mistaken on something?

Assuming you have a 11.4K SE inverter, that is all you are going to get. My 14.5K is hooked up to my 11.4 SE, and yep, it clips at max SE output on my best day.

It's KWh not KW, so I don't think you're maxing out the inverter. Tell us about the system and what data you're showing... Do you have a readout for the day by 15 min interval?

That is right. Screenshot showed today's accumulated wattage, not instantaneous power.
My system is
Panels: Hanwha Q CELLS: 340x12=4kW
Inverter: SE3800H-US

I have a very similar system down in the San Diego area - 12 335W panels(4.02kW) with a SolarEdge SE3800H-US inverter. At the end of today, my SolarEdge monitoring app shows a total of 25.18 kWh at the inverter with the panels totaling 25.31kWh. My numbers are much closer than yours.

Have you checked at the end of the day to see if the values are closer to each? Sometimes the SolarEdge data collection gets a bit out of sync and the values need updating.

I was able to login and monitor but there are no data showing on the panels and inverter output. Basically everything show ZERO.

Please help me to get panel detail monitoring

The Solaredge panel detail is a little buggy. When some of the panels are covered the uncovered ones will show impossible output, mine will show more than 450 watts (not watt hours) on 330 watt panels. The overall output seems correct though.
