SMA`s Sunny Central UP: a powerful central inverter
SMA Solar Technology has increased the power output of its currently largest central inverter by more than 50 percent. This makes it possible to significantly reduce the number of inverters in large PV projects with 1,500 volts of DC voltage. This will lead to a considerable decrease in operating costs. The new Sunny Central UP is the first central inverter to feature a fully integrated hardware and software solution for including storage solutions to easily connect DC battery storage systems without additional components.
With an output of 4.6 MW, the Sunny Central UP is the largest central inverter on the market, according to SMA. With integrated solutions for coupling both AC-linked storage systems and DC battery storage systems, it provides excellent design flexibility for PV power plants in the megawatt class. Depending on the project requirements, storage solutions can be connected within the solar power plant on the DC side, the AC side or both, directly during construction of the power plant or during its subsequent expansion.
The Sunny Central UP also comply with UL standard 2900-2-2, which confirms compliance with international standards, particularly for cybersecurity. Further information to the Sunny Central UP can be found here. (nhp)
