Part 2: More Flexibility
Flexibility from a metal box of high-tech electronics is hard to accomplish. However, solar engineers are able to achieve never-before-seen flexibility when working with the Sunny Tripower TL-US, easily the most versatile three-phase string inverter on today’s market.
Flexibility is more than toe-touching
This isn’t just bending over and touching your toes, this is real-world system design capabilities that take commercial solar to the next level. The latest addition to the Sunny Tripower family, the 30000TL-US, works on delta grids and 1,000 V systems, while the rest of the lineup works in both 600V and 1,000V configurations. With dual MPP trackers, each with OptiTrac™ Global Peak shade mitigation, the Sunny Tripower is truly the star of the solar system.
The flexibility doesn’t stop once the system is commissioned. Each Sunny Tripower comes with an integrated Webconnect card for real-time system communication. For systems using more than four inverters, advanced plant controls and functionalities are available when via the Cluster Controller. Remote access eliminates costly site visits with the ability to access plant diagnostics, review weather data, automatically perform firmware updates and adjust settings like power factor or reactive power controls like Q at Night.
The SMA ReadyRack: how low can you go?
The SMA ReadyRack is the future of flexible design for commercial solar, taking the Sunny Tripower to new angles, as low as 15 degrees, reducing the inverter’s footprint and freeing up space for more modules. With the ReadyRack, system designers no longer need to fret over long DC runs or central mounting locations for inverters. It brings together a fully integrated inverter solution that can be mounted within 10 feet of an array, meeting NEC 2014 690.12 rapid shutdown requirements.
The ReadyRack’s benefits don’t stop there; the fully pre-wired, grounded and lightweight solution arrives onsite ready to be hoisted or carried to its final home. Its minimal footprint and anchorless design means it can be placed in the most creative locations for maximum benefit.
