Steven Zhoutao, General Manager for Huawei’s Smart PV Business Residential Solution, said: “Huawei Fusion Home Smart Energy Solution aims to refine smart energy management, providing an easy-to-distribute, easy-to-install and easy-to-use solution that maximizes the return on investment of installing solar pv at home.”

Increased energy yields from five to 30 percent

Providing a Smart PV solution that is suitable for all rooftop layouts, Huawei Fusion Home has the flexibility to meet the range of customer requirements across the residential market. Huawei Fusion Home Smart PV Optimizers can maximize space utilization on the most complex of rooftops, enabling modules to be installed in shade-prone areas, in various directions, and the use of different module types within one string, resulting in increased energy yields ranging from five to 30 percent, according to Zhoutao.

Inverter efficiency up to 98.6 percent

Through the use of more silicon and less copper and Huawei-patented 5-level topology, Huawei Fusion Home increases inverter efficiency up to 98.6 percent. More precise power conversion and control technology, such as the intelligent multiple-level topology, makes the AC output waves smoother and significantly increases the output and efficiency of users’ home energy systems, the company says.

Easy access and flexibility

Inside the home, Huawei’s Fusion Home Smart Energy Center is capable of communicating with intelligent home appliances, controlling information and energy flows to maximize the amount of solar power used. The integrated, plug & play, DC-coupling, energy storage interface allows for easy access and the flexibility to add batteries anytime, removing the need for users to invest in energy storage systems from the outset while costs remain high.

Real time monitoring

Users can conveniently monitor their systems on a PC or smartphone in real time. The Smart Power Sensor shows the available power at any given time and how best to use it, factoring in weather conditions and electricity pricing. When lower cost electricity is available on the market Huawei Fusion Home can switch grids automatically, using this time to recharge storage batteries, thereby minimizing energy costs, Zhoutao stated.   

Improved start-up efficiency

Huawei’s Fusion Home Smart Energy Solution has been designed to simplify the user experience, with a one-tap start-up feature that improves start-up efficiency by more than 50 percent according to the company. Remote software upgrades, replacement services, remote and visualized module-level management, including I-V diagnosis can all be performed with just one press of a button. This enables 17 types of PV module faults to be detected remotely, removing the need for on-site inspections, significantly reducing O&M costs.

Built to IP65 protection rating standards, Huawei FusionHome delivers safety to both assets and users, the company says. In addition to natural cooling technology and built-in DC and AC surge arresters, Huawei FusionHome Smart Optimizers ensure that the high voltage on the rooftop can be cut off by rapidly de-energizing each PV module. This improves safety for homeowners, maintenance personnel, as well as reducing the risk of property damage. (HCN)
