Lti Reenergy unveils PV inverters with Ampt technology
Sep 10, 2012 - German photovoltaic (PV) inverter company Lti Reenergy GmbH today announced the launch of solar inverters optimised with technology of US power conversion technology provider Ampt LLC for utility-scale systems.
The company's PVmaster Station PVMSC 800-1000 inverters enabled with Ampt Mode will be released in the fourth quarter of 2012, Lti Reenergy, part of privately-held LTi Group said. According to the announcement, these are the first utility-scale solar inverters with Ampt Mode.
Norbert Holthenrich, Lti Reenergy head of photovoltaic, said that the new inverters offered the highest power and efficiency in the company's product portfolio. Optimised to operate in Ampt Mode at a higher and narrower voltage range when used together with Ampt's module-level direct current (DC) converters, the inverters achieve a two-thirds increase in output power compared with the standard Lti inverter technology. They also reduce inverter costs by up to 40% for the same power level, according to Lti Reenergy.
