“Designed especially for C&I solar applications, the new MAX model is set with a maximum output power of 125kW, which is the highest power of string inverter with multiple MPPTs at 400Vac level,” said Lisa Zhang, Growatt Marketing Director. With maximum DC input current reaching 32A for each MPPT and 16A for each string, this new MAX inverter matches well with high power and bi-facial modules. Its 10 MPP trackers support 20 strings connection at most, which significantly reduces the energy loss caused by shadow effect and module mismatch.
Besides, MAX supports up to 150% DC/AC ratio to achieve lower LCOE for PV plants. With its wide MPPT working range from 180V to 1000V, the inverter can start working earlier in the morning and switch off later in the afternoon, realizing a longer operation time and harvesting much more solar energy. Growatt also enhances operational safety with Type II SPD on DC&AC sides, fuse-free design, integrated DC switch, IP66 protection as well as optional active arcing protection (AFCI) and built-in PID recovery to provide all-round protection for the inverter and even the whole PV system.
“Managing a large number of inverters may be a little tricky, and thus to make system management smarter and easier, we supplement various solutions of monitoring and smart energy management for C&I solar projects,” Lisa Zhang added. Growatt simplifies the management of multiple inverters with Smart Energy Manager, which can also realize export limitations and PF control of the system. In addition, the company develops ShinePhone and ShineServer for end-users to monitor system operation anytime, and OSS (Online Smart Service) system for installers and distributors to easily access online service, such as online smart IV scan and diagnosis, remote configuration and firmware upgrade, enabling 60% of issues to be solved without site visits and reducing O&M costs.
“Since its recent launch in the market, this new MAX model inverter has quickly accumulated over 500MW shipments. Now we are ready to bring this outstanding C&I solution to more countries worldwide,” Lisa Zhang concluded.
