SOLENERGY solar inverter


Applications
SOLENERGY solar inverters have been designed and built by Solutronic.
They have no transformer and can be characterized by their small and
compact design, wide range of PV-input voltage and main communication
interfaces necessary for future grid control and monitoring. Through a combination of several inverters in an installation, even small roofs with different
alignments and shading situations can be optimized for maximum yields.
Power range
SOLENERGY 40S1 = 3.0 kW AC-rated power
SOLENERGY 50S2 = 4.0 kW AC-rated power
SOLENERGY 60S2 = 5.0 kW AC-rated power
Technical principle and PV-plant planning
SOLENERGY 40S1 is a transformer-less single-phase inverter with one boost
converter and MPP-tracker. SOLENERGY 50S2 and SOLENERGY 60S2 work
with two boosters and two MPP-trackers which enables installation on roofs
with different alignments and shadow situations. Almost any type of solar
module can be connected to SOLENERGY inverters since its wide PV-input
voltage range adapts to the requirements. The SOLENERGY inverters run
with even low levels of solar ration, exploiting the daily sunshine to its optimum.

Master-Slave networks and connection


All devices of one installation can be connected through the integrated
RS 485-bus. This will allow simple and easy communication with other inverters. e.g. required power reductions
Grid monitoring
All Solutronic inverters feature an integrated and software controlled grid
and plant protection. Grid frequency and voltage will continuously be monitored by the inverter. These requirements vary from country to country and
can be adapted by changing parameters.
SOLCOMBOX
SOLCOMBOX offers in mains parallel operation the possibility to integrate all
necessary functionalities for plant yield monitoring with Solutronic inverters.

Performance reduction
Feed-in reduction requirements can be adjusted directly inside the inverter
by adjusting the 70% parameter. As an alternative, the optional power reduction board in the SOLCOMBOX can control the feed-in rate.
Other alternatives are:


Load control of energy users to avoid feed-in reductions (through SOLCOMBOX)


Energy feed-in in relation of the power consumption (through the optional GridManager)
Avoid feed-in completely (through the FEED-IN function of the GridManager)

Yield control
An integrated annual energy data logger reliably logs the energy which is
fed-in into the grid. This data logger can also be programmed freely for plant
monitoring. Logged warnings and alarms show all relevant plant and grid
problems. If additional yield control is required, several inverters connected
to each other may be compared and a ration sensor, wired to the SOLCOMBOX, supplies valuable data.

Data monitoring
A display is used for all kinds of data monitoring. Additionally all data may
be visualised through the SOLPLUS+ software from Solutronic. Open portals
like SolarLog are also possible.
Remote monitoring
We recommend the use of integrated TCP/ IP interface for remote monitoring. If the plant has no ADSL or other direct line connections, Solutronic
will recommend a partner who offers pre-configured UMTS routers within a
safe VPN connection.
Housing (IP 65)
The inverter housing features a compact design. Because of the high efficiency, the inverter only needs a convection cooling with the installed heat
sink.
Software updates
Software updates are possible locally or through remote control with our
software SOLPLUS+.

Accessories for SOLENERGY solar inverters


GridManager with FEED-IN function
The GridManager avoids a general power reduction, which is sometimes
necessary because of legal regulations or special grid requirements. While
using the power reduction function, the personal consumption will be taken
into account. The GridManager is connected to all SOLPLUS inverters in the
installation and constantly monitors the actual power flow in the grid. Based
on the adjustments made, all inverters reduce the feed-in rate depending
on the self-consumption to the desired value, general power reductions can
therefore be avoided. Even a zero grid feed-in is possible.
GridManager+ with automatic off-grid switching
In combination with the GridManager+ it is not only possible to control and
measure the power. The inverter also switches safely to the off-grid operation. In case of grid power loss, switching to the off-grid operation will be
realised within 10 milliseconds.
Technical consulting and training
Solutronic Energy GmbH offers regular trainings and continuing education.
This can take place at either your own or the distributors site. Our Solutronic service team and customer hotline is available for you during installation
and communication integration.
