Panasonic Eco Solutions Canada has selected Dynapower Co. LLC, a Vermont-based supplier of power conversion systems, to design and manufacture a 280 kW bi-directional energy storage inverter for use at the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT).

The custom-designed inverter will have five independently controllable DC inputs, four battery inputs and one input with maximum power point tracking for the integration of solar.

At the BCIT campus, Dynapower says the loads will be two electric vehicle chargers with possible future expansion to include critical support infrastructure for the university. When solar power is being produced but no cars are being charged, the energy will be stored in batteries for use when solar generation is not possible, such as at night or on cloudy days, Dynapower adds.
