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.

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Professional weather sensors form the heart of large solar plants supporting their operation and performance. Lufft was the first manufacturer to combine several sensors in one housing, bringing the largest multiparameter weather sensor family with 19 members into being. Many of them are well-suited for solar site assessment and continuous monitoring. The most commonly used one is the WS600 delivering data on temperature, air pressure, wind, relative humidity and precipitation. Through its open protocol, it can easily be attached to radiation sensors e.g. from Kipp&Zonen. Other models have an integrated Silicon, Second Class or Secondary Standard radiation sensor.
