Advanced Energy Industries Inc. has introduced the Solaron 500E, a European model of the company's transformerless grid-tie photovoltaic inverter.
Operating at 500 kW, the Solaron 500E enables European commercial and utility-scale PV installations to achieve the lowest levelized cost of energy in the industry by increasing energy harvests and by reducing balance-of-system and operating and maintenance costs, Advanced Energy says.
The Solaron inverter's transformerless design eliminates the need for a step-up transformer and makes it smaller and lighter than competitive products. The product's design allows multiple inverter connections to a single medium-voltage transformer, minimizing the number of such transformers required for a system.
Additionally, the Solaron inverter comes in an outdoor-ready IP45 enclosure that eliminates the need for additional heating and cooling systems.
