After extensive testing, Redflow can announce the successful integration of their zinc-bromine flow batteries with Deye's hybrid inverters.
The Deye hybrid inverter is the first of its kind available for use with Redflow batteries and provides a range of new capabilities previously unavailable to the Australian market.
The inverter offers the ability to have a direct connection of solar and batteries in a three-phase grid connected inverter and can also continue charging batteries from solar PV even in the event of a grid outage, as well as a backup generator input.
As a fully compliant CEC listed, grid connected inverter, the Deye hybrid inverter can now offer more options to customers around how they can use Redflow's ZBM flow batteries.
Redflow CEO and Managing Director, Tim Harris said that the successful integration testing will give our customers flexibility around how Redflow energy storage solutions can be used in Australia and other global regions.
"The Deye inverter simplifies the way customers connect to the grid and seamlessly integrates batteries and solar, which will be particularly beneficial for commercial and industrial customers," Mr Harris said.
Deye Australia Country Manager, Ben Li said that they are pleased to be working with a leading flow battery technology company like Redflow.
"Achieving successful integration between the Deye's advanced hybrid inverter and Redflow's zinc-bromine flow batteries enhances the energy storage options available to integrators and customers," Mr Li said.
The integration testing was completed at Redflow's Integration and Testing facility in South Australia by Redflow Battery Management System Architect, Simon Hackett.
The Deye inverter demonstrated complete compatibility between Redflow's ZBM3 zinc-bromine flow battery.
The Deye 10 kW and 12 kW 3-phase hybrid inverters are fully AS4777.2:2020 certified and CEC approved for the Australian market and integrate successfully with solar PV arrays, 48 Vdc battery storage, grid and generator connections in a single cost-effective, outdoor-capable, wall-mounted device.
For larger storage systems, up to 10 Deye inverters can be clustered together in parallel to service large commercial site deployments.
Redflow will also offer the option to integrate the Deye hybrid inverter in to their new QuadPod energy storage solution; a custom designed, scalable, 40 kWh, pre-wired enclosure.
Redflow Battery Management System Architect Simon Hackett said, "The Deye integration process was straightforward because of the high degree of cooperation extended to Redflow by Deye's Australian office during the course of the testing process. We are really pleased with how well the Redflow battery and Deye product lines are working with each other."
Redflow will continue to work with Deye to test compatibility across their full range of advanced hybrid inverters.
