Eaton announces Power Xpert 2000kW/2200kW solar inverters, 2500kW energy storage inverters
By Renée Francoeur
September 9, 2016 – Eaton has announced new higher-power models of its Power Xpert solar and energy storage inverters for grid-tied utility-scale projects: Power Xpert 2000kW and 2200kW solar inverters and 2500kW energy storage inverters.
The solar inverters are designed and tested to meet the UL 1741 standard, are outdoor-rated and feature a wide Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) voltage range. A proprietary Eaton control strategy and filter design optimizes the inverter efficiency, Eaton adds, while providing ultra-low output distortion.
The energy storage inverters are designed to increase electrical resiliency in large-scale applications and work with a wide-range of battery chemistries to store and transmit power. The inverter design also helps provide precise power ramp rate control and frequency regulation, Eaton explains, to enhance the reliability of electrical power transmission and distribution.
All Power Xpert inverters include integrated fiber networking equipment, grid protection relay, AC and DC switchgear as well as direct throat coupling to the transformer.
