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.

The utility-scale PV market is poised for exponential growth and yet the industry still has many fundamental opportunities to improve on standards and best practice. Tracker shade loss has been one of those topics that deserve more attention, but has been typically handled by derate factors rather than trying to accurately forecast the loss over the life of the system. Join Nextracker’s subject matter experts, Aron Dobos and Neelesh Umachandran, and Rounak Kharait, director of solar energy assessments at DNV, for a webinar about why shade modeling matters and recommendations on what the solar industry should do about it.

Join us to hear directly from the CTOs and heads-of-research from the top-20 cell/wafer producers to the PV industry today. The event will focus on predicting the key metrics underpinning the next big shift to n-type with answers to the key questions: When will the transition to n-type happen? Which companies will be first to 10 GW capacity and production? Who will be the key equipment suppliers for the new production lines? Which n-type process flow/architecture will emerge as the front-runner? What will polysilicon purity and wafer thickness levels look like for optimized n-type manufacturing? What will the upstream poly/wafer supply-chain look like in 5 years from now?
