A U.S. research group is now developing new inverters to protect solar installations from cyberattacks. The researchers also aim to create new cybersecurity standards. Professor Alan Mantooth, the group’s research coordinator, said that inverters can be shut down if they are hacked, or contribute to grid instability and result in the overcharging of batteries, while potentially creating problems that we still don’t know how to address.
The OneBox, from Indian manufacturer Vision Mechatronics, consists of a lithium battery, hybrid inverter and solar charge controller to give a hassle-free solution for electricity back-up during power outages. Solar rooftop owners are offered a grid feed feature to maximize net metering income from any excess power generated.
Scientists in India have tested a new inverter topology with a single-phase, induction-motor water pump. The seven-level inverter, with five power semiconductor switches, is said to be particularly efficient at reducing switching losses thanks to a pulse width modulation technique.
The wall-mount charger with a high power output of 22 KW AC maximum reduces electric vehicle charging time by up to 70% in comparison to common 7KW AC chargers. The 125 KW string inverter—a cloud-connected three-phase solution—enables cost-efficient decentralized photovoltaic systems for both ground-mounted and large commercial applications.
This year will see strong growth for the global PV market, to 114 GW, and that pattern will continue in the years ahead, according to analyst Wood Mackenzie. A report has highlighted soaring inverter replacement costs for PV project owners as a side-effect of the solar success story.
Bids are invited to supply 10 sets of 1×5 MW or 2×2.5MW 3-phase grid-connected containerized power-conditioning units for a MAHAGENCO project in Maharashtra. The scope of work also includes installation and commissioning. Bids will open on October 10.
The Chinese communications giant and inverter maker has signed an 860 MW contract with solar developer Adani Green Energy to supply its FusionSolar Smart PV Solution 6.0 with SUN2000-185KTL-INH0 inverter.
