January 31 (Renewables Now) - Spain’s Ingeteam SA is preparing to launch a new model of its hybrid inverter aimed at photovoltaic (PV) self-generation, featuring a battery input and two inputs for solar panels.
The new inverter, named INGECON SUN STORAGE 1Play TL M, will be available in two power outputs – 3 kW and 6 kW, the electrical engineering company said.
Each of the two PV inputs has its own system for maximum power point (MPP) tracking, making them useful for bringing out the maximum from rooftop PV modules when the panels are placed in two different orientations, Ingeteam explains.
The product is suitable for self-generation systems whether they are grid-connected or standalone. It is also compatible with lead-acid and lithium-ion batteries as well as a variety of storage system.
The inverter is equipped with a built-in energy management system (EMS), which among other functionalities, allows the user to monitor the PV data on a smartphone.
Production is scheduled to start in May 2020. Before that, Ingeteam will showcase the new inverter model at the Energy and Environment International Trade Fair (GENERA 2020) in Madrid in early February.
