Growatt, a leading distributed energy solution provider, has released its APX HV Battery, targeting energy storage applications.
The battery solution contributes more energy by eliminating the effect of the energy mismatch between packs, allowing each module to fully charge and discharge independently.
The innovation assures greater flexibility for installation and expansion with batteries of varied State of charge (SoC) and from different new batches, saving Operations and Maintenance (O&M) and supply chain costs eventually. It features a redundancy design that prevents system shut-down from a defective pack.
“Protections include the active Battery Management System (BMS) for each cell, the pack-level energy optimizer and built-in fire protection of aerosols for each module, an arc-fault circuit interrupter (AFCI) and a replaceable fuse for the whole system,” said Lisa Zhang, vice president of marketing at Growatt.
APX HV Battery applies an IP66 rating of protection and smart self-heating technology to enable operation outdoors and at the lowest temperature of -10℃.
Its Plug-and-Play solution enables highly efficient installation, and APX HV battery also eliminates the pre-charging process, reducing efforts and time needed during parallel connection and maintenance to the greatest degree.
The battery solution is compatible with its single-phase, split-phase and three-phase Battery-Ready inverters, including MIN 2500-6000TL-XH, MIN 3000-11400TL-XH-US, MOD 3-10KTL3-XH for residential application, as well as MID 12-30KTL3-XH inverters for commercial application.
