A 100MW agricultural photovoltaic solar project fitted with Trina Solar’s 210 Vertex modules, situated in Luotian County, Hubei province, China, has been connected to the grid.
The project, covering 160 hectares, uses Trina Solar’s 210 Vertex 550W series and is
expected to generate 110 million kWh of electricity a year, offsetting 42,000 tons of
standard coal and reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 104,500 tons a year.
With the completion of the project, agricultural production and PV power generation will
be effectively combined to achieve both agricultural development and solar energy
utilization, which not only improves land use but also promotes local economic benefits.
The 210 Vertex module, based on large 210mm silicon wafers, achieves low-voltage
high-power characteristics with innovative non-destructive cutting and high-density cell
interconnect technology, achieving maximum power of 670W with an efficiency of 21.6%,
and single string power rising 40%.
The inverters compatible with Trina Solar’s 550W modules in this project are Huawei’s
latest high-current string inverters, highly adapted to ultra-high power 210 Vertex
modules, resulting not only in higher power generation and safer operation, but also
performing exceptionally well in terms of system stability of weak-grid connection and
intelligent operation and maintenance.
“Ultra-high-power modules are an inevitable trend in the PV industry,” says Huawei. “That
is why we have launched matching inverters and provide a complete set of intelligent PV
solutions,” it adds.
After full verification in the market, the high-current inverters are not only compatible with 210 modules, but also have the advantage of giving full play to the high-efficiency power generation of ultra-high-power modules and improving the system DC/AC ratio. More than 10 mainstream inverter manufacturers have now put high-current inverters on the market that are perfectly adapted to 210 modules.
The synergy of the 210 industry chain is more seamless and mature than ever, and the
ecology is more complete. The ultra-high power modules with low voltage and high string
power are widely used in large power plants worldwide.
