The Danfoss Group has introduced its string inverter series to the U.S. solar market. The North American launch includes the expansion of the company's Loves Park, Ill., facility to accommodate a dedicated U.S. solar inverters division.
Danfoss says its string inverters are designed to increase energy output in a given area, compared to traditional central inverters, because they allow more solar modules to be installed in the space. The inverters feature three maximum power point trackers (one per string) in order to increase efficiency.
Additionally, installation of the inverters can take place in several parts of the plant at the same time, with the teams eventually meeting up in the middle. Danfoss says this system can make the installation process more efficient and lower costs.
