Growatt has announced the worldwide availability of its MAX 100-125KTL3-X LV inverter, a product which since its launch last year has attracted considerable attention due to its outstanding features.
“Designed specifically for C&I solar applications, the new MAX model is tuned with a maximum power output of 125kW, which is the highest for a string inverter with multiple MPPTs at the 400Vac level,” explained Lisa Zhang, Director company marketing.
With maximum DC input current reaching 32A for each MPPT and 16A for each string, the new MAX inverter pairs well with high power and bifacial modules. Its 10 MPP trackers support connecting up to 20 strings, greatly reducing energy loss caused by shadow effect and module mismatch.
The MAX supports up to 150% DC/AC ratio to achieve lower LCOE for PV power plants, and with its wide MPPT operating range of 180V to 1000V, the inverter can start operating sooner in the morning and turn off later in the afternoon, for longer life. running time to harvest more solar energy.
Growatt improves operational safety with Type II SPD on both DC and AC sides, fuseless design, integrated DC switch and IP66 protection plus optional Active Arc Protection (AFCI) and PID recovery integrated to provide complete protection for the inverter and indeed the entire PV system.
“Managing a large number of inverters can be a bit tricky, so to make system management smarter and easier, we have integrated various smart energy monitoring and management solutions for C&I solar projects. “, continued Zhang.
Growatt simplifies the management of multiple inverters with its Smart Energy Manager, which can also realize export limitation and system PF control. The company developed ShinePhone and ShineServer for end users to monitor system operation at any time and an OSS (Online Smart Service) system for installers and distributors to easily access online services, such as analysis and intelligent IV diagnostics, remote configuration and firmware upgrade. , allowing 60% of problems to be solved without on-site visits, thus reducing operating and maintenance costs.
“Since its recent market launch, the new MAX inverter has rapidly racked up over 500 MW in shipments. We are now ready to bring this outstanding C&I solution to more countries around the world,” concluded Zhang.
