AEG Power Solutions Introduces Modular PV Inverter for U.S. Commercial Applications

Industry-leading efficiency and availability in a transformerless central inverter scaling from 15 kW to 150 kW

DALLAS--AEG Power Solutions (FWB:3W9) (AEG PS) is pleased to introduce the new modular photovoltaic (MPV) solar inverter, with leading-edge power electronics in a transformerless, modular design. Engineered for optimum efficiency and availability, the three-phase, transformerless central inverters deliver efficiencies greater than 97 percent in a compact, lightweight modular package. Made in America and built in units of 15 kW, they scale economically from 15 kW to 150 kW, making them perfect for commercial installations.


"AEG Power Solutions is pleased to introduce the broadest inverter product line for commercial solar installations," said Susan Wynne, managing director of North America for AEG PS. "By offering 10 models ranging from 15kW to 150kW, customers will not have to overinvest in inverters that are too large for their needs. With our advanced technologies, the MPV inverter delivers increased efficiency and reliability to the commercial solar inverter market."

The MPV inverter has a number of unique advantages:

Greater Flexibility

With AEG PS' introduction of product sizes that other vendors don't offer, photovoltaic (PV) developers now have access to a wide variety of inverter sizes to more accurately match inverters to PV array requirements. The MPV inverter is typically half the footprint and half the weight of similar central inverters so it can be easily deployed on the roof or on the ground. It even fits through a standard door.

Increased Energy Production

Inverter modules are turned on as needed to match the power required and are therefore run at their optimal efficiency. This module optimization, coupled with advanced inverter design and no transformer losses, yields efficiencies greater than 97 percent. With a wide maximum power point tracking (MPPT) range, highly efficient MPPT algorithm, and fast responses to dynamic changes in clear and cloudy conditions, the MPV inverter maximizes energy production.

Dependable Energy Production

In the unlikely event that an MPV inverter module should fail, the inverter will only lose a portion of the production during the maximum power of the day. Modules can be quickly replaced. The MPV inverters are certified to UL 1741 and include surge protection and advanced ground fault protection.

Greater Control

Each MPV inverter has a System Controller that performs overall management, fault control, diagnostics and performance management for the entire inverter system. The MPV inverter also comes with an Integrated Web Server and Remote Monitor application. Once the MPV is connected, customers can obtain detailed system information and performance on any PC, tablet or smartphone that is connected to the Internet. Although a third party monitoring system is not required, MODBUS is supported for external communications. Additionally, an external display and keypad, as well as integrated AC and DC disconnect switches bring control and information to customers, whether on-site or in remote locations.
