AEG Power Solutions to showcase high-efficiency, utility-scale inverter at Intersolar North America

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- AEG Power Solutions (AEG PS), a global provider of innovative premium power electronics, is highlighting its high-efficiency, full-featured utility-scale inverter at Intersolar North America. Launched in Europe and Asia in April, the Protect PV.500 Inverter – with an efficiency greater than 98 percent and flexible grid management features – is ideal for utility-scale deployment. AEG Power Solutions is a subsidiary of listed holding company 3W Power (Euronext Amsterdam 3WP, Frankfurt 3W9, ISIN GG00B39QCR01, WKN A0Q5SX).

'As grid requirements vary from project to project, the Protect PV.500 is designed so that changes can be made easily,' said Kaivon Mortazavi, vice president of North America for AEG PS. 'With four different ways to provide reactive power control, adjustable settings for Low Voltage Fault Ride Through, provisionable ramp parameters for start and stop operations, and remote power control, its flexibility is unmatched.'

The Protect PV.500 has an operating direct current (DC) input range of 400 to 1000 V with a maximum DC current of 1,060 A. The rated power at the inverter output contactor is 510 kVA with a power factor of 0.9 inductive to 0.9 capacitive. It is also available as part of a fully integrated 1 MW equipment shelter with two Protect PV.500 inverters, communications equipment, MV transformer and switchgear. The two inverters can be set up in Copain mode where they operate as a highly-efficient team.

Derived from the highly successful PV.250, the Protect PV.500 features a power stack with advanced-design measuring and control technology. The device control is fully digital and communication-enabled, so parameters can also be monitored and controlled remotely via the Internet. AEG PS products include such features as low-loss chokes, high-quality components and double coating of all printed circuit boards (PCBs) making them reliable for decades to come.

'Building on our successful inverter business in Europe, we are pleased to present the Protect PV.500 in the United States,' explains Enrique De La Cruz, vice president and general manager of the Solar Solutions SBU at AEG PS. 'We offer solar plant developers reliable, high efficiency inverters for a flexible design of MW utility-scale power plants.'

Come see the Protect PV.500 at booth 7329 at Intersolar North America July 12-14 and enter for a chance to win $500.
