SatCon, Monitoring, 1 YEAR PVZone String Monitoring for 500kW Inverters, orderwith Monitoring Fee
Satcon manufactures a comprehensive line of utility grade inverters for commercial scale solar power applications. The units are grid-tied and line interactive, enabling them to convert direct current power from solar arrays to alternating current power that is compatible with the utility voltage for export to the grid. Satcon integrates high reliability components into complete systems allowing for exceptional performance, the highest efficiency in their class and low installation costs. Compliance and certification to UL1741 and applicable ANSI and IEEE standards insures compatibility with the local utility as well as providing qualification for approval by the California Energy Commission.
Satcon manufactures commercial solar inverters ranging from 30 to 500KW. This broad range of product choices available to installers, helps to maximize the power generated by the solar array, allows users to take maximum advantage of available financial incentives and shortens the payback cycle for the entire solar power installation. This segment of the U.S. solar power market is estimated to be $45 million in 2005 and is expected to maintain its 30% growth rate for the foreseeable future. This market is driven by state Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPS) goals, with primary markets in California , New Jersey, and New York. Additional growth will come from expanded programs in these states and as other states expand their RPS subsidy program. Inverters represent 20% of the value of commercial scale PV systems.
Satcon’s PowerGate™ power converter for photovoltaic applications (AE-PV Series), available in 120/240 Volt single phase, 208, 240, 480 Volt three phase, and transformer-less versions is a grid-tie interactive inverter designed to convert power generated by PV solar arrays into utility grade power for export to the utility grid.
