SMA America has introduced the Sunny Tripower 8000TL, 10000TL, 12000TL, 15000TL and 17000TL inverters for applications requiring PV array voltages up to 1,000 VDC. According to the company, the three-phase, transformerless Sunny Tripower is ideal for large-scale arrays with modular plant topology.
To create a multi-megawatt plant, users can connect the AC output of multiple Sunny Tripower devices to a medium-voltage transformer for grid interconnection and feed-in. The Sunny Tripower is certified to the European standard and currently operates on 60 Hz with a voltage of 400 VAC line-to-line and 230 VAC line-to-neutral. When paired with a transformer, the Sunny Tripower is applicable for behind-the-fence configurations.
Additional features of the Sunny Tripower include 98.1% efficiency, data transmission via Bluetooth wireless technology, an easily accessible connection area, and SMA's patented OptiCool temperature management system, SMA adds.
