Ideal Power Converters (IPC), a developer of power converter technologies, says its 30 kW photovoltaic inverter, IPV-30kW-480, now conforms to the UL standard 1741 and is included on the California Energy Commission (CEC) list of approved PV inverter products. Inclusion on the CEC list allows the IPC product to be installed in California and across the U.S.
IPC completed industry certifications and CEC efficiency testing with Intertek, an independent PV inverter test laboratory, and has been granted rights to use the ETL certification mark. The IPV-30kW-480 achieved a CEC-weighted efficiency of 96.5%, according to the company.
The inverter delivers 480 V AC three-phase power and supports grounded PV arrays without an internal or external transformer. It is manufactured in Austin, Texas, and includes a standard 10-year warranty.
