Solis Meets Demand for Ever Larger PV Projects with Updated Inverters at ENEX, Poland
Ginlong (Solis) Technologies, one of the most experienced and largest inverter producers in the world, is highlighting two updated inverter ranges at the ENEX trade fair in Poland from 8-9 March. Products on display include the 100K-5G-PRO series, for higher powered commercial and industrial (C&I) applications, and the 255kW-EHV three phase inverter for large area utility-scale systems.
The Solis 100K-5G-PRO inverter includes component and manufacturing upgrades that enable full compatibility with today’s high power 182mm and 210mm PV modules; allowing greater capacity and a lower Levelised Cost of Energy – all from a smaller footprint. This comprehensive re-engineering of the PRO series has also helped overcome escalating supply-chain bottlenecks for a number of hard-to-source components.
Travis Snyder, Product Manager at Solis Europe, says: “The Solis 100K-5G-PRO is a new generation of inverter designed to accommodate the growing adoption of higher powered 182mm and 210mm PV panels in the commercial and industrial market. The 5G PRO has an increased power rating, of more than 600W, greater current capacity, up to 18A per string, and Maximum Power Point Tracking of eight; each with access to two groups of strings.”
The 255kW-EHV comes storage-ready and offers a large single power capacity (up to 1500V and 255kW) with high Maximum Power Point Tracking (up to 12). It can also accommodate 24 string inputs and support 500W+ high power and bifacial solar panels.
Travis adds: “With an efficiency of up to 99%, our 255kW-EHV high voltage string inverter is designed to maximize PV power plant yields in the new era of high-performance large-area solar systems, while significantly reducing the Levelised Cost of Energy.”
Reliability and efficiency in a wide range of climates is ensured by the Solis-255K-EHV inverter's IP66 classification and a corrosion protection rating of C5. Its unique and efficient heat dissipation design, combined with intelligent temperature control protection, can result in 5%-7% higher outputs at extreme temperatures than the competition; equivalent to producing up to an additional 50-70 kWh per MW per hour.
As Eric Zhang, Solis Global Sales Director, concludes, these enhanced product ranges come at an exciting time for the company: “In 2022 we were proud to be ranked third in worldwide inverter shipments by S&P Global, to win the Green Leadership category in the Asia Responsible Enterprise Awards, and to be rated in the top two Chinese listed inverter companies by PVP365 – the country’s leading professional platform for solar industry news. In the last two months, Solis has been awarded two more prestigious seals for ‘Top Inverter Brand’ by respected research firm EUPD, bringing our total to nine. Combined with the improved performance, scalability and flexibility of our revised 5G-PRO inverters, we are confident of a continued rise up the industry rankings in 2023 and beyond.”
