Sungrow's Flagship 1500V Central Inverter is Now UL 1741-SA Certified

The containerized 2.5MW SG2500U, Sungrow's leading 1500V central inverter product, features high efficiency, energy-saving operation, and the ability to function in extreme environmental conditions with little to no loss in efficiency, almost always hitting its mark at 98.8% efficiency regardless of humidity, temperature, and other variables

FREMONT, Calif., Aug. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Sungrow, the global leading inverter solution supplier for renewables, has announced that its 1500Vdc turnkey station, the SG2500U, received its UL 1741-SA certification. That makes SG2500U the first central inverter to receive this certification, a stringent grid interconnection requirement which will be required for North American projects in the near future.


The containerized 2.5MW SG2500U, Sungrow's leading 1500V central inverter product, features high efficiency, energy-saving operation, and the ability to function in extreme environmental conditions with little to no loss in efficiency, almost always hitting its mark at 98.8% efficiency regardless of humidity, temperature, and other variables. The product is also designed for simplified logistics and easy O&M. These features of SG2500U help it generate greater ROI for utility-scale PV plants.

"We are proud to be the manufacturer of the first central inverter to receive the UL 1741-SA certification, for it has been one of the most difficult requirements to satisfy but also necessary step in modernizing the grid for greater reliability and stability. This achievement is testament to Sungrow's large investments in research and development,and we will continue this trend so we can keep bringing more environmental friendly power to North America and the rest of the world," said Professor Renxian Cao, President of Sungrow.

The SG2500U will be on display at the Solar Power International show in Las Vegas next month (Booth #3226).

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.
