Growatt Releases Commercial/Industrial Solar Inverter Globally

Growatt’s MAX 100-125KTL3-X LV inverter is now available globally. The MAX can support up to 150% DC/AC ratio for lower LCOE of PV plants. The inverter’s wide MPPT range of 180V to 1000V allows it to start earlier in the morning and shut down later in the afternoon. This allows for longer operation times to harvest more solar energy. Growatt enhances operational safety with Type II SPD on DC&AC sides, fuse-free design, integrated DC switch, IP66 protection as well as optional active arcing protection (AFCI) and built-in PID recovery to provide all-round protection for the inverter and even the whole PV system.

“Designed especially for C&I solar applications, the new MAX model is set with a maximum output power of 125 kW, which is the highest power for string inverter with multiple MPPTs at 400V AC level,” says Lisa Zhang, Growatt’s marketing director. The new MAX Inverter can be used in conjunction with high-power or bi-facial modules. The maximum DC input current is 32A per MPPT and 16A per string. Its 10 MPP trackers enable the connection up to 20 strings. This greatly reduces energy loss due to shadow effect or module mismatch.

Growatt’s Smart Energy Manager simplifies the management and export limitation of multiple inverters. The company has developed ShinePhone and ShineServer for end-users to monitor system operation anytime, and an OSS (Online Smart Service) system for installers and distributors to easily access online service, such as online smart IV scan and diagnosis, remote configuration and firmware upgrade, enabling 60% of issues to be solved without site visits, reducing O&M costs.

“Since its recent launch on the market, the new MAX inverter has quickly accumulated over 500 MW in shipments. Now we are ready to bring this outstanding C&I solution to more countries worldwide,” Zhang concludes.
