Fuji Electric today announced the release of the PVI Series of power conditioners for use in large-scale solar applications.
Constructions of large-scale photovoltaic generating facilities are being planned for various locations across the globe as a source of renewable energy. The power conditioner achieves high-efficiency and large capacity, Fuji Electric says, which are ideal specifications for use in mega solar.
Fuji Electric is contributing to the growth of mega solar needs by expanding sales in the growing markets of China, India, Southeast Asia and Japan.
Switching losses and filter losses are reduced by applying the new 3-level conversion circuit. This allows customers to achieve the top-level efficiency of 98.5%, minimizing energy losses, Fuji Electric says.
All of the basic features are bundled in an integrated system, including basic peripherals such as switch gears and transformers. The 1000kW capacity has made it possible to reduce the number of installed power conditioners needed for mega solar. The result is shorter local installation and assembly time, and a reduction in construction costs, according to the company.
The equipment has acquired IP54 standards certification for dust and water resistance, for its use in mega solar, and outdoor use.
