July 15, 2010 by Jeff Shepard

Advanced Energy Industries, Inc. and PV Powered announced the introduction of new PV inverter products. These new offerings are part of Advanced Energy’s strategy to provide customers with a complete portfolio of inverter solutions that address the entire power range of the fast-growing solar inverter market. With these new introductions, the company states that it is well-positioned to be one of the leading worldwide suppliers of solar PV inverters with its Solaron and PV Powered inverter product lines.

Advanced Energy is unveiling complementary, next-generation 500kW solar inverters for utility scale, large commercial, and ground mount grid-tied PV installations. The combined product family includes the Solaron 500kW 600V bipolar, 500kW 1000V, and PV Powered 500kW 600V transformer-based designs that enable customers to optimize the levelized cost of energy (LCOE) through what is described as superior performance, industry-leading efficiency, site-wide reductions in BoS costs, and comprehensive ongoing services for O&M.

The new PV Powered 35kW and 50kW commercial inverters are designed to deliver high efficiency and ease of installation and maintenance, these unique-sized models are the perfect solution for small-to-midrange commercial applications. The new systems allow installers and designers the flexibility to work within site-specific space limitations and provide an essential building block to complete larger projects. The company says that the PVP35kW and PVP50kW have a simple, high-reliability design to deliver 20+ year operating lifetimes, highest efficiencies, and the lowest cost of ownership in their class.
