Hoymiles has released a new next-generation line of hybrid inverters, expanding the company’s portfolio of advanced energy solutions.
Hybrid solar systems involve the use of solar panels, batteries and the main grid, as well as generators in some cases for added reliability. Hoymiles’ hybrid inverters are integral to such systems, enabling the two-way conversion of electricity from alternating current (AC) to direct current (DC), as well as DC to AC. This allows the system to dynamically switch between power sources depending on energy production, price and usage.
Available in single-phase and three-phase options, the new HYS and HYT series inverters also come equipped with a custom-designed data transfer stick (DTS). The DTS enables smart internet connectivity, meaning all operational data can be monitored via the company’s S-Miles Cloud platform. The products are already available in the European and Asia-Pacific markets, with an America launch planned for 2023.
The series also features an industry-leading DC/AC ratio of 1.5, resulting in significantly lower costs when compared with systems of the same capacity using other inverters. The 14A Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) current provides seamless compatibility with all mainstream photovoltaic modules available on the market today, and the 97.6% efficiency represents a standard unmatched in the industry. Additionally, Hoymiles has designed the inverters to be lightweight, compact, and simple to install, meaning they can be easily integrated into any hybrid system.
“At Hoymiles, we prioritize making efficient and smart energy available to everyone. Our new hybrid inverters integrate solar and grid power in an intuitive way so that more people can access reliable and cost-effective energy and be prepared for emergencies such as extreme weather,” commented Zhao Yi, the company’s Chief Technology Officer. “By acting as a medium between solar and grid energy, hybrid inverters help people access electricity in a smarter, more flexible way while ensuring stability across the entire grid system. Our new inverters represent another significant step in our mission to innovate in the solar market and bring clean energy to everyone.”
