Ingeteam will once again be present at the world’s leading event in the solar sector: Intersolar Europe. At its 150 m2 stand, the company will showcase its very latest products and technology for PV plants, as well as control, monitoring and automation systems and battery inverters.
Ingeteam will also present its latest developments in predictive maintenance through its Ingeboards data analysis platform. Indeed, the company has established itself as a global leader in the operation and maintenance sector, with a contract portfolio of more than 12 GW of maintained power in renewable energy generation plants. Ingeteam currently maintains more than 25,000 PV inverters in more than 500 plants throughout the world.
1500 V central inverter
At its stand, Ingeteam will showcase the latest version of its 1500 Vdc inverter, the INGECON® SUN PowerMax B Series, which can deliver a power output of 1800 kVA in a single power block at ambient temperatures of up to 30ºC, thereby giving a power density of 317kW/m3. Thanks to this powerful inverter and to the possibility of connecting up to four inverters to the same transformer low voltage winding, Ingeteam achieves 7.2 MVA in a single Power Station with 1500 Vdc technology.
One of the main innovations of this inverter is its sand trap system, which ensures maximum protection against the ingress of suspended particles. This system is installed in the equipment being supplied for the world’s largest PV plant, the Sweihan PV solar farm in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
The 1000 Vdc version of this inverter is able to deliver 1275 kVA up to an ambient temperature of 35ºC.
1500V string inverter up to 144kW
This transformerless three-phase inverter is one of the main innovations that Ingeteam is set to present at the fair in Munich as its next string inverter launch. Primarily designed for commercial, industrial and utility scale systems, this new INGECON SUN 125TL inverter will reach a record-breaking output power of 144 kW if connected to a 690Vac grid.
This new inverter model will be available in 2019.
1000V string inverter up to 110kW
This transformerless three-phase inverter, showcased at the last edition of Intersolar Europe, delivers one of the highest power densities on the present string inverter market. With its cutting-edge technology, the INGECON SUN 100TL inverter features low voltage ride-through and reactive power capability, and is able to deliver up to 110 kW at an ambient temperature of 50ºC (if connected to a 440Vac network). It has been designed to minimize the cabling and installation costs in order to reduce the OPEX and CAPEX (no neutral wire or string combiner boxes are required). Furthermore, Wi-Fi and Ethernet are provided as standard.
2.5 to 40 kW string inverters
Visitors to the Ingeteam stand will also get the opportunity to view the company’s smallest string inverters. Featuring dual maximum power point trackers, these inverters are suitable for self-consumption systems and have been designed to harness the maximum solar power. This single-phase version from this inverter family, delivers between 2.5 to 6 kW, while the three-phase model can achieve up to 40 kW.
Hybrid PV + battery inverter
Ingeteam’s hybrid inverter, the INGECON® SUN STORAGE 1Play, will also be on show at Munich. This single-phase transformerless inverter, which was originally designed for stand-alone systems, can also operate connected to the public grid in self-consumption mode, back-up mode or grid support mode. Furthermore, it features a PV input as standard and can also operate as a grid-connected PV inverter without batteries.
This year’s edition of the Intersolar Europe fair is to be held at the Messe München International Exhibition Centre in Munich
