AEG Power Solutions (AEG PS), a global provider of power electronics for renewable energies, introduces two new members of its broad inverter line for the Americas market. The Protect PV.500 OD UL and Protect PV.630 OD UL are compact, high efficiency central solar inverters.  They are both UL-certified, and are designed for American utility-scale applications on ground area installations in harsh outdoor environments.  Also new, the TKS-P is a complete turnkey system based around the inverters, designed for utility-scale PV megawatt power plants.  It is connected to the PV array on one side and to the transfer station on the other side, and can be put into operation immediately. AEG PS showcases its latest product developments in central inverters, storage concepts and smart grid power solutions in booth #2814.

Problem

With the majority of utility-scale PV power plants located in harsh environments around the globe, high-uptime and reliable performance of central inverters are essential for long-term project performance.

Solution

A key feature of the broad Protect PV inverter line is a power stack with advanced measuring and control technology enabling DC input voltages of up to 1000 VDC and peak efficiencies of 98.4%. The inverters support a wide operating temperature range of -4˚F to +122˚F, while their light weight (3.638 lbs) and small dimensions (87 x 89 x 36 in) make them easier to transport, install, and service.  The turnkey solution TKS-P includes additional components such as transformers and medium-voltage switchgear, and is delivered to the installation site fully equipped and tested.  TKS-P can come in the shape of two Protect PV outdoor inverters and communications equipment integrated on a skid with an outdoor MV transformer and switchgear; or as a walk-in metal shelter, which contains two Protect PV Indoor inverters, communications equipment, and external AC disconnects. The shelter is built on a skid with an MV transformer, and switchgear.

Applications

PV power plants in harsh environments.

Platform

AEG PS’ broad line of compact outdoor units for PV power stations comprises durable, external, weatherproof metal housings and integrated, high-efficiency, solar central inverters.  The highly effective proprietary cooling system provides optimal air circulation within the inverter. The enclosure of double-walled aluminum with a stainless steel plinth can easily be mounted on concrete foundations. 
Both TKS-P solutions are available with advanced combiner boxes in the PV array field.  The core units are fully integrated via communication and monitoring components to ensure smooth PV power plant operations. 

Availability

October 2013 onwards for the America’s market.

When it comes to storage, the US market exceeded a gigawatt of advanced energy storage installations (weighted towards lithium ion) at 1.46 GW, more than the previous six years in total! An exponential growth rate could see the market hit 7.5 GW p.a. by 2025. The summit will provide a wealth of content around this vital piece in the US power puzzle, with sessions dedicated to explore how companies are making money from batteries, the latest chemistries and their applications as they apply to different use-cases. We ask how investors can match ESG criteria to batteries and we will bring case studies of successful deployment and project execution onto the stage to examine how you can ensure your own projects are successful.
