Sungrow unveils new 1500VDC string and central inverters


Sungrow is showcasing its two new 1500VDC inverters, SG125HV, at Solar Power International.

The inverter puts 125kW of capacity in a suitcase-sized cabinet weighing just 130 pounds.

At a higher rated voltage, the SG125HV will significantly reduce installation and balance of system costs, and is a prime example of why 1500VDC systems are the next step for the entire industry, the company said.

Projected to be released for global customers in early 2017, the 125HV will be an industry-shifting product that will influence utility scale PV system designs in coming years.

Also at the show, Sungrow is showcasing a model of its SG2500HV-MV central inverter system, also rated at 1500VDC. The inverter features a 20-foot containerized design, intended for easy transport and installation.
