After disappointing beginnings, India's rooftop solar market is now thriving with 75% year-on-year growth. PV Tech caught up with Ron Shen, vice president, international sales and service centre at China-based PV inverter supplier GoodWe, to discuss knock-on effects of safeguard duties on modules, price pressure and market growth.
GoodWe is rolling out its new compact 20 kW SDT series inverter for three-phase households with high capacity density, which includes two MPP trackers and a wide input voltage range to ensure design flexibility and compatibility with high-output PV panels.
Following last year’s announced cooperation with Tigo, PV inverter manufacturer GoodWe is now launching the DNS and SDT rapid shutdown inverter series with MLPE functionalities, a streamlined solution for the optimization of energy yields on the module level which is perfectly adequate for complex system designs and partial shadings – using optimizers on shaded modules recovers an average of 36% energy loss due to mismatch.
GoodWe is rolling out the new DNS series inverters which are ideal for solar power generation in residential homes. With a low start-up voltage of only 120V and the widest voltage range of 80-550V, these inverters can provide high performance and greater options for any household system, while maintaining a sleek, child-friendly design without sharp edges and safer to manipulate.
GoodWe has recently launched its new SBP series, which is claimed to be the world’s first AC-coupled retrofit solution with UPS function which allows energy storage and uninterruptible power supply to both single phase and three phase inverter systems.
GoodWe has extended the three-phase inverter with dual MPP tracker ‘Smart DT’ series range to accommodate a wider number of residential and small-scale commercial applications with three additional models: 8kW, 9kW and 10kW versions to be added to the 4-6kW original range.
