Huawei has launched its latest cutting edge FusionSolar Smart PV offerings at a special industry event in Sydney, to meet the growing demands for smarter solutions in a booming Australian solar sector in which 4,000MW of new capacity was added in 2020, taking total capacity to nearly 20,200MW.
As a recognised global leader in the solar inverter market, Huawei has now launched its state-of-the-art residential and C&I inverter in Australia that will deliver three main benefits to users: optimal electricity cost, active safety and a better user experience.
The SUN2000-6KTL-L1 inverter is the newest addition to the existing L1 range, with a ‘true-hybrid’ battery and optimizer with AFCI function, providing ultimate flexibility and safety for both installers and end-customers.
The SUN2000-29.9/36/40KTL-M3 has been designed to better meet the requirements of C&I customers in Australia and includes four key features:
- AFCI: Designed to improve safety for PV plants, AFCI can reliably detect the occurrence of arcs in less than 0.5 seconds. Huawei’s AFCI complies with TÜV SÜD’s IEC63027 standards and the maximum distance covered is 200 meters, which is sufficient for large rooftops.
- Optimizer compatibility: The SUN2000-20.0/36/50KTL-M3 inverters are compatible with Huawei SUN2000-450W-P optimizers. This will significantly increase system yields (up to 30%), especially if the roof has a shading issue. With the full optimizer solution, panel level monitoring and 0V rapid shutdown can also be achieved, which is a mandatory requirement for some C&I projects in Australia. The automatic module mapping function saves 95% of configuration time and ensures smooth and easy commissioning.
- Built-in PID recovery: The PID effect is very common in humid areas of Australia (such as Queensland and Northern Territory). The M3 inverters are equipped with a built-in PID recovery function, which can increase energy yield by 1.59% over 6 months, based on a real-life Huawei case study.
- Easy commissioning: Only WLAN-FE and 4G Smart Dongle are required for commissioning the M3 inverters, with the smart dongle supporting up to 10 devices. Besides this, only one App – the FusionSolar App – is required for set up, commissioning and monitoring, further enhancing the user experience.
Both SUN2000-6KTL-L1 and SUN2000-29.9/36/40KTL-M3 inverters come with a 10-year fully comprehensive warranty, providing peace of mind for customers.
Mr. Hudson Liu, CEO of Huawei Australia, said:
“As a pioneer of the Smart PV industry, we are continuously innovating and are committed to providing the optimal output and experience for our customers and actively contributing to Australia’s Renewable Energy Target.”
Timm McVaign, Digital Marketing Specialist of One Stop Warehouse, commented:
“The primary features of the SUN2000-6KTL-L1 inverter of active safety, higher yields and being battery ready are extremely helpful for our customers to communicate and on-sell the product as a desirable value add to their own customers.”
Mr. Keera Single, CEO of Solargain, added:
“As part of the smart PV solution, the Fusion Solar App enables simple monitoring, making selling the benefits of storage visible and also helping customers to become energy independent.”
