Sungrow, one of the leading worlds leading PV-inverter manufacturers, announces that one of its 1500V PV projects was successfully connected to grid, officially initiating the next phase of the project.
With a total of 30MW installed capacity, the project uses mixed systems combining both 1000V and 1500V. In comparision to the 1000V system, the 1500V system is capable of reducing nearly 20% of cable costs, leading to a lower cost of roughly $USD 3 cents per watt. The increase to direct voltage at 1500V helps to improve efficiencies, by allowing more modules to be connected in every string and reducing the amount of cabling. This in turn leads the system to be improved by more than 1%. With a drive to cut costs in the solar industry, it is important that inverters improve generating efficiency, electricity quality and environmental adaptability and give the opportunity for more intelligent O&M. Many believe that the 1500V PV system will dominate the solar industry in the future.
Sungrow is one of the leading PV-inverter manufacturers in the world with over 20GW installations globally.
