pv magazine Australia partnership

Competition between central and string inverter suppliers has been fierce in recent years. Swiss-based ABB supplies both solutions, however is stepping up its efforts to increase awareness of the advantages of its PVS-120 high powered string inverter solution.

The company will be outlining the advantages of the technology and taking questions from participants in a webinar later today. Sign up free here.

ABB claims the 120 kW unit can deliver a series of advantages when compared with comparable smaller-capacity string inverters. These include:

  • Intelligent technology to optimize not just inverter performance but overall system efficiency and energy yield;
  • High power density, integrated all-in-one and fast-installation enabled brings down both Capex and Opex;
  • Increased PV plant design flexibility with Multi-MPPT and increased yield in complex installation like on rooftops or hilly ground;
  • And direct connection to ABB cloud for monitoring and services to improve reliability and operational cost efficiencies.

The PVS-120 is available in 1000V, with a new 1500V version due to be released globally in Q3 2018.
