PV inverters

 

Ingeteam has supplied its PV inverters to the recently-inaugurated PV solar plant in Moquegua, located in southern Peru. This plant, which was recently inaugurated by the country’s President, Ollanta Humala, occupies a surface area of 134 hectares and represents an investment of more than 35 million euros.

With an estimated annual energy production of 45,000 MWh, the plant is expected to meet the annual energy demand of some 20,000 homes.

This order has enabled Ingeteam to gain a foothold in the Peruvian PV market, a market which has strong solar energy potential.

Some four hundred workers were employed in thinget2e construction of this plant, which they managed to complete in just seven months. SolarPack was responsible for the development and construction of the plant. The Ingeteam supply comprised ten 1.8 MW power stations, designed to comply with all the requirements of the country’s grid code. Thus, aiming at satisfying all the requisites of the Committee for the Economic Operation of the System (COES), Ingeteam also supplied its EMS (Energy Management System) in order to implement the power plant control.

To date, Ingeteam has supplied more than 34 GW to its customers within the renewable energy sector, confirming its position as one of the world’s leading power converter manufacturers.

On the 17th July last, Ingeteam obtained authorisation for the use of its string PV inverters in residential generating systems. The authorisation document was signed by the Electricity and Fuel Superintendence (SEC) of the Ministry of Energy of Chile.

This authorisation allows the string PV inverters made by Ingeteam to be installed and used in accordance with Law 20.571 of the Government of Chile, governing the payment of the electricity tariffs for residential generating systems.

Therefore, according to this law, either an individual or company can install a Non-Conventional Renewable Energy (ERNC) generating system on its property and use the energy produced for self consumption (up to a maximum of 100 kW). Whenever more energy is produced than consumed (surplus), then this can be injected into the public electricity grid, and the price of this energy is then deducted from the next electricity bill. This billing system is known as net metering.

The PV inverters

The string PV inverters approved by the Chilean SEC, under Law 20.571, pertain to the INGECON SUN 1Play (2.5 –6 kW) single-phase transformerless family with a dual MPPT input, and also to the INGECON SUN 3Play (10 – 20 kW) three-phase inverter family. As far as the three-phase PV inverters are concerned, these have been approved for both the single and dual MPPT input modes.

On April 28th, the Dubai local authority DEWA (Dubai Electricity Water Authority) released the last updated list of “Equipment meeting eligibility requirements for DEWA Distributed Renewable Resources Generation Program (Shams Dubai)” regarding the connection of solar energy to houses and buildings by encouraging the proprietors to install PV panels to produce electricity. This is the first programme out of three, inside the “Smart Dubai Initiative”, aiming at transforming Dubai into the smartest city in the world in three years.

Ingeteam is proud to announce that its PV inverters’ brand INGECON® SUN has been qualified on DEWA’s list. This document provides an overview of the manufacturers and equipment that meet DEWA’s technical standards and can be installed for PV on-grid application. Ingeteam is the 1st inverter manufacturer qualified as eligible equipment for DEWA with its central inverters INGECON® SUN PowerMax.

The brand new INGECON® SUN PowerStation CON40 is a 40ft. containerised MV Plug & Play solution up to 3,500 kVA – 36 kV, specially designed for utility-scale PV plants under adverse environmental conditions.

The 40ft. container features IP65 protection degree and innovative air-conditioned cooling system, ensuring the best PV inverter operation (99.1% maximum efficiency). It is the only solution in the market that withstands extreme temperatures up to 60°C without power derating.

SolarCity has created a fund expected to finance $750 million in residential solar projects with an investment from Google. The new fund will cover the upfront cost of solar panel installations for thousands of homeowners in 14 states and the District of Columbia, USA, and make it possible for them to pay less for solar power than they pay for electricity generated by fossil fuels.

“We’re happy to support SolarCity’s mission to help families reduce their carbon footprint and energy costs,” said Sidd Mundra, Renewable Energy Principal at Google. “It’s good for the environment, good for families and also makes good business sense.”

Google has committed $300 million to the new fund—its largest renewable energy investment to date. The new fund is the largest of its kind ever created for residential solar power, and the second such collaboration between the two companies.
