Siemens unveils Sinvert PVM Ul family of solar inverters

By Greentech Lead Team: Siemens Industry announced
the launch of Sinvert PVM UL inverter, designed for peak efficiency and maximum
plant yields to convert solar energy into grid-compliant AC voltage for infeed
into conventional power supply networks.

The Sinvert PVM UL inverters are available in PVM12 UL /
PVM16 UL / PVM20 UL and PVM24 UL models, from the range of 12 kW to 24 kW,
suitable for small to medium sized plants in the commercial market. These
inverters are capable of delivering over 98 percent peak efficiency.

Capable of outputs for PV plants up to the megawatt
range, these PVM UL inverters provide a
high degree of economic efficiency over the entire life cycle of a
grid-connected PV system.

With a NEMA 3R degree of protection in the connection box
and NEMA 4 for the electronics, the Sinvert PVM UL inverters are capable of
both indoor and outdoor installation. Its rugged, fan-less and maintenance-free
design with an integral surge protection standard helps reduce the cost of
ownership. Its lightweight and compact design saves on installation time and
space. The Sinvert PVM ULs also feature a low intrinsic/night consumption (<
0.5 W), which further reduces costs for plant operators.

The wide maximum power point ranges of the Sinvert PVM UL
family provides the customer with flexibility, while a full output up to 40-50
degrees C enables a wide area of application and the best possible plant

“Our Sinvert PVM UL inverters increase Siemens’
ability to provide our customers with innovative solutions for the solar
market. With 50 years of experience in the PV industry, our inverter product
offering now ranges from microinverters for residential and light commercial
applications to complex inverter systems for small to large commercial and
utility scale applications. With this integration, we help to keep our
customers’ levelized cost of energy to a minimum,” said Peter Krause, PV
solar inverter business segment manager, Industry Automation Division, Siemens

Siemens three-phase Sinvert PVM UL inverters are
compliant with IEC, UL and NFPA standards, and feature power outputs of 10, 13
and 17 kW for the IEC versions, and 12, 16, 20 and 24 kW for the UL versions.

The Sinvert PVM UL models have an integrated combiner box
with a lockable DC disconnect and string fuses. Two interfaces are available,
including Ethernet and RS485. A convenient illuminated graphics display shows
current infeed power data and other key inverter information.

Recently, Siemens Energy received an onshore wind
order  from
MidAmerican Energy Company for its 407.1 MW wind project expansion. This order follows
the completion of its 593.4 MW wind projects in Iowa.
