Sungrow, the global leading inverter solution supplier for renewables, officially launches the brand-new central inverter — “1+X” Modular Inverter at World Future Energy Summit, a high-profile international event for global sustainability and transition to clean energy. “1+X” Modular Inverter is the most innovative central inverter solution which Sungrow is promoting worldwide and it is expected to lead the next generation central inverter designation for large-scale utility solar plants.
As the World Future Energy Summit is in full swing in Abu Dhabi, global innovators, experts, entrepreneurs and investors meet, exchange, network and trade there. As a significant participant for the Solar& Clean Energy Expo, Sungrow showcases its industry-leading solutions for residential, commercial& industrial, and utility solar and ESS application, demonstrates technological breakthroughs and innovations, and thereby, incubates business chances with potential investors. On this grand stage for global cleantech, “1+X” Modular Inverter is definitely one of the game-changing stars that shape future energy.
The cutting-edge technologies of this product center one keyword— “Modularization”. “1+X” inverter solution boasts modularization at the inverter level, the system level and the component level. Three-level modularization makes power plant design more flexible and post O&M more convenient in the future.
Firstly, the “1+X” modular inverter features a 1.1MW single unit as the minimum, but the block capacity can be expanded to the max. 8.8 MW by combining 8 units just like building blocks. Customers can choose from 1.1MW to 8.8 MW to meet their best demands. Secondly, the system modularization makes PV module configuration more flexible to extend. The inverter supports a maximum of 2 times DC/AC ratio. 1+X modular inverter has 42% more MPPT than the traditional central inverters, and it realizes the string-level management by the new wireless DC combiner. Increased MPPT and more refined management lead to higher electricity generation. The DC/ESS interface built in this solution also supports connecting to the energy storage system, enabling customers to enjoy the storage function for future energy usage. Thirdly, the component modularization realizes the plug and play function, reducing the maintenance from 6h to 2h. Moreover, since each inverter also works in an individual unit, it can be directly replaced by an onsite backup inverter if a failure occurred. Hence, the three-level modularization, once again, sets this gigantic product apart from others.
Sungrow’s “1+X” Modular Inverter has soon received great popularity since its debut in the Chinese domestic market in March 2021. By far, Sungrow achieved more than 500MW orders of this product and they are supplying various solar plants around China. After its release to the international market, the “1+X” Modular Inverter will start its clean-power journey across the world and meet the future energy demands with its outstanding flexibility, convenience, and simplicity.
