AEG Power Solutions Extends its Range of Solar Inverters With the New Protect PV.800 Integrating Grid Stabilizing Features

AEG Power Solutions continues to extend its range of high efficiency solar inverters--- New grid stabilization features such as reactive power input are setting new standards

WARSTEIN-BELECKE, Germany--AEG Power Solutions (AEG PS) (FWB:3W9), a leading global manufacturer of power electronic systems and solutions for industrial power supplies and renewable energies, has enhanced its product portfolio with an 880 kVA central solar inverter, the Protect PV.800.

AEG PS has expanded its product spectrum for high-end output solar equipment and integrated grid stabilizing features, answering proactively to a major technical concern on the market. The PV.800 is a new member of the Protect PV solar inverter family that was first successfully established in 2009 and includes the PV.250, PV.500 and PV.630 in various indoor and outdoor configurations. The Protect PV.800 is able to support up to 1300 kWp, which extends AEG PS' existing range of products for multi-megawatt utility scale PV systems.

In designing Protect PV.800, grid stability issues have been taken into consideration. The new solar inverter PV.800 consequently offers improved features for the grid connection such as stabilizing reactive power input in case of load peaks. Fault Ride Through (FRT) capabilities are configurable for voltages and current, and innovative field programming solution allows for specific customization for all grid codes.

Designed for global use, the Protect PV.800 fulfills all requirements in compliance with relevant national standards and guidelines. As with the previous versions, it can also be integrated in the turnkey container solution, TKS-C 1600, enabling a total nominal AC output of 1600 kVA and connecting to a DC generation capacity of up to 2600 kWp.

Further technical highlights include the power stack, PV Core, with a feedback and control technology that was developed in-house, which provides an input voltage range of up to 1,000 volts and one of the highest power efficiency thanks to the optimized pulse-pattern algorithms.

Additionally, active-earthing feature is available on all the Protect PV range and allows Protect PV.800 to operate as well with thin-film modules.

"Protect PV 800 is extending our power range of highly efficient solar inverters. We can provide solar power plant developers with systems and solutions for a wider range of applications and flexible design options for their installations", explains Bob Roos, VP Solar Strategic Business Unit of AEG Power Solutions.

AEG Power Solutions offers professional industrial solutions for utility scale and large commercial solar applications. The Protect PV series is available in a large scope of power range and in various indoor and outdoor designs, suitable for a wide range of environmental conditions and climates.
"Protect PV.800 is setting new technical standards as far as grid connection is concerned, and we are aware this is going to be a growing concern for operators and thus for our customers. Growth in renewable energies will be more and more linked to the capacity of integrating them into the grid or in smart micro-grids. Such "Grid-friendly" innovations as the ones featured in Protect PV 800 contribute to such developments, open new markets and create demand for new solutions ", further comments Bob Roos.
