When High Temperature Meets Photovoltaic Systems

Through rigorous testing and verification with actual application data, Beny Microinverter BYM2800W performs exceptionally well in hot weather conditions. Even under an ambient temperature of 50 degrees Celsius, it can maintain 100% output power.

Six Common Questions About Power Supplies - Solved!

In this Allied Expert Advice article, Altech Corporation's Automation Product Manager, Laszlo Gyorgypal, answers six common questions about power supplies to help you select the best solution for your industrial automation application.

A Deep Dive Into Improving The ROI For Commercial PV Solar Systems

As with any investment, the two main ways to improve the ROI of a commercial PV system is to increase energy production (and therefore annual revenue) and decrease lifetime costs. Let's take a deeper look at how this can be done in commercial PV installations.

How Keeping It Simple Can Lower O&M Costs

To mitigate the increasing cost of running a utility-scale solar project, many owners and operators have switched their focus from CapEx to operations and maintenance (O&M).

Making Solar an Even Safer Investment

As more businesses, utilities, and state bodies look to solar energy to help them meet their carbon reduction goals and cut energy costs, safety is coming under ever more scrutiny.

Avoid Cross-mating of PV Connectors

Not only the selection of quality components but also their correct handling is crucial for the PV plant's profitability and safety. Therefore, it is essential to know and understand the technical impacts when installing and connecting the various elements.

The First PV Connectors for Harsh Environmental Conditions

Requirements for operating electrical installations in ambient temperatures over 70°C or at altitudes higher than 6,500 feet differ from the requirements for standard installations due to the different climate conditions.

Correct Use of Aluminum Core Cables in PV Systems

In PV systems, it is recommended to use copper core AC cables. If you need to use aluminum wires, pay attention to the transition method when connecting aluminum cables to copper wires or equipment with copper terminals.

The Top 10 Most Common Myths about Traditional DC Power Optimizers: Part 1

In this series, we'll debunk common misconceptions and shed some light on how performance is impacted by MLPE technologies.

How Silicon Carbide is Changing Solar Power Systems

Silicon carbide enables solar inverters to be lighter, smaller and more efficient. Using silicon carbide power components instead of silicon for solar inverters can save 10 megawatts for each gigawatt and 500 watts/sec in operations, representing significant energy savings.

Wire Management: Materials, New Module Geometries and the NEC

The trends with the biggest impact that we are seeing all revolve around the design of module frames. There are a number of module manufacturers who have reduced the length of the flange found on the underside of a typical module frame.

Understanding Solar PV Wire Management

Installers that take their wire management seriously will have longer lasting systems that require less maintenance over the lifetime of the PV system (20 to 30+ years).

Talking SPI 2018 with Mudge Fasteners

DURA-CON® Fasteners show resistance to Environmental Corrosion equal to that of stainless steel fasteners when tested in aluminum solar panel racking. Visit us at Booth #2283 for more information.

Talking with REC Solar about Preventing Solar System Fires

Faulty connections during installation can lead to hot spots, and eventually to fires, faulty equipment either due to defects during the manufacturing process or due to damage or lack of maintenance, general degradation.

HPS EnduraCoilTM Cast Resin Medium Voltage Transformer

HPS EnduraCoilTM Cast Resin Medium Voltage Transformer

HPS EnduraCoil is a high-performance cast resin transformer designed for many demanding and diverse applications while minimizing both installation and maintenance costs. Coils are formed with mineral-filled epoxy, reinforced with fiberglass and cast to provide complete void-free resin impregnation throughout the entire insulation system. HPS EnduraCoil complies with the new NRCan 2019 and DOE 2016 efficiency regulations and is approved by both UL and CSA standards. It is also seismic qualified per IBC 2012/ASCE 7-10/CBC 2013. Cast resin transformers are self-extinguishing in the unlikely event of fire, environmentally friendly and offer greater resistance to short circuits. HPS also offers wide range of accessories for transformer protection and monitoring requirements.
