Delta updates M125HV solar PC string inverter
Operating quieter than its predecessor, the M125HV Gen2 solar PC string inverter offers 99.1 per cent peak efficiency for large ground-mounted solar power plants. Delta has introduced the update for its 140kVA inverter which can accommodate input voltages ranging between 860 and 1500 volts DC with a maximum sporadic voltage of 1,600V. Up to 20 strings can be attached via Amphenol connectors, for instance as part of utility-scale ground-mounted installations, says the company. It operates at 71.5 dB(A).
By accepting high input voltages, the inverter can reduce the amount of current cables must transport, which allows installers to use smaller gauge wire and minimise energy loss.
Intelligent cooling combines natural convection with quieter active ventilation. The M125HV Gen2 is IP65-rated and uses Type-2 surge protection devices on the input and output sides. Avoiding the use of electrolytic capacitors makes a longer service life possible, explains Delta.
The M125HV Gen2 inverter can be remotely controlled and monitored via Fieldbus.
The all-in-one-design has two mechanical DC disconnectors and a pro-EL (electroluminescence) feature. There is a data point collection for string monitoring and I-V curve creation and reactive power is supplied 24/7.
In addition to anti-PID (potential induced degradation) technology, the inverter is Sunspec-compatible.
The updated M125HV Gen2 inverter is available from Delta in Q1 2021 in selected European countries.
