Satcon introduces new Smart Inverter solutions

Greentech Lead America: Satcon, a provider of
utility-scale power conversion solutions for the renewable energy market, has
launched the PowerGate Plus H-Type product line, the newest addition to its
Utility-Ready solution portfolio.

The PowerGate Plus H-Type solutions combine the high
efficiency and proven reliability of the PowerGate Plus inverter with the
enhanced system intelligence and control of Satcon’s EDGE Adaptive Control
Architecture (ACA).

Satcon’s H-Type solutions offer more powerful system
monitoring, diagnostics, and remote control functionality. Leveraging Satcon’s
EDGE ACA control architecture, H-Type inverters enable instant voltage
stabilization, ramp rate control, frequency response, and secure the continuous
operation of the PV plant in the event of external faults, achieving low
voltage ride through (LVRT) and other fault ride through performance

The smart inverters are available in three power ratings
of 100 kilowatts, 135 kilowatts, and 250 kilowatts.

Satcon has developed these smart inverters in order to
address the demand from Hawaiian Utilities for increased inverter control. To
date, Satcon has sold over seven megawatts of H-Type solutions across multiple
Utilities in the state of Hawaii.

“Over the past year, Hawaiian Utilities have expanded
inverter feature-function requirements in order to gain greater control of
these distributed power plants. Leveraging our next-generation EDGE Adaptive
Control Architecture, Satcon was able to rapidly address the Utilities’ LVRT
requirements and provide for highly flexible, controllable, and stable solar
power grid integration,” said Michael Levi, vice president of worldwide
marketing and product management for Satcon.  

Satcon to supply 52.5 MW PV inverter solutions for Southern
California solar power plant

Recently, Satcon announced that it will supply 51
megawatts (MW) of its Equinox Prism Platform solution, a fully integrated
multi-megawatt medium voltage (MV) building block, along with 1.5 MW of its
next generation Equinox inverter systems for a solar power plant in Southern
