Schneider Electric's Customizable PV Box featured at Solar Canada 2011 Conference and Exposition

Schneider Electric will exhibit a PV Box in Booth N03 at Solar Canada 2011, December 5-6 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

Solar Canada 2011 attendees will get an inside look at Schneider Electric's PV Box, showcased at Booth N03 Schneider Electric, the global specialist in energy management, will exhibit utility scale and large commercial installations at the Canadian Solar Industries Association's annual conference and exhibition, taking place at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre from December 5-6.


"Through our facility in Mississauga, Schneider Electric provides FIT-compliant inverters for the Ontario market," said Rudy Wodrich, Commercial Vice President Americas, Schneider Electric Renewable Energies Business. "Since 2008, we have supplied over 225 MW of inverters and PV Boxes into the Ontario utility power plant and large commercial rooftop market, giving us a cumulative share of more than 45%."

The Schneider Electric PV Box is a customizable pre-wired equipment package specifically designed to meet the growing demand of large-scale grid-tied solar farms and large commercial installations in any region of the world, even in the harshest environments. The PV Box is a complete solution, including power conversion, electrical distribution, control, monitoring, and communication, all from one vendor. Visitors to the Schneider Electric booth will have the chance to walk through the PV Box to get a up-close look at the inverters and equipment inside.

Prior to the conference and exhibition, Schneider Electric will offer a training session on Small Commercial and Three Phase Applications on Saturday, December 3. This workshop will focus on Schneider Electric Xantrex GT100, 250 and 500MV inverter operation, maintenance and troubleshooting. Register at www.solarcanadaconference.ca.

Dynapower - MAXIMIZE PRODUCTION AND REVENUES WITH SOLAR PLUS STORAGE

The addition of energy storage to an existing or new utility-scale PV installation allows system owners and operators the opportunity to capture additional revenues. Traditional storage plus solar applications have involved the coupling of independent storage and PV inverters at an AC bus or the use of multi-input hybrid inverters. An alternative approach - coupling energy storage to PV arrays with a DC-to-DC converter - can help maximize production and profits for existing and new utility-scale installations. DC-Coupled Utility-Scale Solar Plus Storage leads to higher round-trip efficiencies and lower cost of integration with existing PV arrays and at the same time, opens up new revenue streams not possible with traditional AC-coupled storage, including clipping recapture and low voltage harvesting, while being eligible for valuable tax incentives.
