Expanded line of HPS Sentinel solar duty transformers
By Anthony Capkun
June 2, 2020 – Hammond Power Solutions Inc. (HPS) has extended its line of 3-phase general purpose and k-rated transformers for solar applications.
HPS Sentinel solar duty transformers are available for applications where voltage adjustments are necessary between the solar generation system and the utility service. The grid and inverter side of the transformer is clearly identified on the nameplate and catalogue, allowing for bi-directional power flow for use in facility and utility-interactive generation systems.
The transformers meet the latest Canadian Energy Efficiency Regulations SOR/2018-201 efficiencies (NRCan 2019), and all low-voltage solar-duty transformers are available in a type 3R heavy-duty enclosure and feature enhanced BIL ratings for increased reliability. Standard integral floor and wall mounting brackets are on units up to 45 kVA and have voltage ratings from 15 kVA to 1000 kVA.
