Inverter for ground-mount projects with 480Vac interconnections

15 May 2020

SMA America announces the Sunny Highpower PEAK3 125kW as a solution for ground mount projects with 480Vac interconnection. This solution can connect to the grid at 480Vac without an additional transformer. The PEAK3 125kW is most applicable in community solar, agricultural aggregate metering, and other large distributed generation projects. For PV system developers and integrators, designing plants with PEAK3 and SMA's centralized, modular system architecture reduces balance of system costs, and speeds installation and commissioning. The PEAK3 125kW with 480Vac output requires no additional step-down transformer to interconnect with 480Vac services. PEAK3 also offers significant savings in both inverter and installation costs.For PV system owners, the PEAK3 delivers high energy production by eliminating the need for an additional step-down transformer and by reducing line losses throughout the system. Using fewer transformers and inverters reduces lifetime service costs by limiting potential points of failure, while the centralized, modular plant architecture simplifies operations and maintenance (O&M) further reducing costs. SMA also offers the PEAK3 150kW with 600Vac output for even greater cost savings in large-scale PV plants with medium voltage interconnections.
