Bonfiglioli Releases New Generation of Utility Scale Solar PV Inverters For North American Market

Bonfiglioli’s utility-scale inverters support intelligent utility-grid integration and management features.

(Hebron, Kentucky, September 3, 2015) - Bonfiglioli USA, the Kentucky-based subsidiary of Bonfiglioli Group, and a global leader in supplying cutting edge utility-scale power conversion system solutions, is pleased to announce that it has released a new generation of utility-scale solar PV inverters for the North American market.

The RPS TL-UL inverter series variants has been listed by Intertek for compliance to the requirements of UL1741, IEEE1547 and IEEE1547.1 standards.

With the new RPS TL-UL inverter series, Bonfiglioli has expanded its product range, reaching a market- record of 1,575 kW in a single inverter or 3,150 kW for the largest Power Conversion System, with enough reactive power capability to meet the project dynamic and static reactive power requirements hence eliminating the need of capacitor or reactor banks. The scalable, modular design ensures maximum energy harvest, an optimal matching with any size array and maximum system reliability. It is available in either Master-Slave or Multi-MPPT configurations including floating or grounded arrays, optional E-house and medium voltage (MV) transformers - all packaged for fast deployment.

The new RPS TL-UL inverters boast the same technology as Bonfiglioli PV systems that are currently installed in over 2.5 GW worldwide, with over 272 MW in USA. Bonfiglioli's utility-scale inverters support intelligent utility-grid integration and management features.
