ABB to showcase solar technology investments at Intersolar Europe

May 30, 2017 - As part of its commitment to support the generation of safe, clean and sustainable power, ABB will unveil solutions resulting from its continued investment in developing solar power conversion technology. A number of the innovations are part of the ABB Ability portfolio of connected and software-enabled solutions.

ABB will be showcasing its latest products of inverter solutions for grid-connected and microgrid applications at this year’s Intersolar Europe from stand 210 in Hall B2. ABB’s solar conversion technology is suitable for power ranges from small kW to multi-MW, and is backed up by a comprehensive package of communication, monitoring and control solutions, designed to maximize solar power profits and support across the entire life cycle of a project.

Making its first public appearance at Intersolar, is ABB’s 100 and 120 kW string inverter featuring multi-MPPT solutions for maximum plant design flexibility. The inverter will be available at the end of 2017, with a power and voltage range extension to 1500 Vdc to be released soon after. The inverter has been designed for large scale commercial and industrial PV installations, as well as for ground mounted projects. Featuring energy harvesting and advanced cooling credentials, the inverter has been tested. It has access to the Internet of Things via IP based communication, scalable cloud architecture and wireless commissioning via tablet/mobile device.

Joining the string inverter, will be ABB’s latest addition to the TRIO family, the TRIO TM. This 3 MPPT version features power ratings up to 60 kW, and has been designed with flexibility in mind. Commissioning is guaranteed with an embedded web user interface through any WLAN device. Furthermore, a Sunspec compliant Modbus protocol allows integration with third party monitoring and control systems.

Other products available to view from ABB include the UNO-DM-PLUS series, which represents a solution for residential PV installations. It is future-proof, with a design for power ratings from 1.2 to 5.0 kW, enabling integration with current and future devices for smart building automation. The presence of Plug and Play connectors and a commissioning routine enables effective installation without needing to open the inverter cover, while the built-in user interface enables access to features such as advanced inverter configuration settings, feed-in control and load manager.

Further solar product launches will come throughout 2017.

Intersolar Europe, takes place from Wednesday 31 to Friday 2 June at Messe, Munich. It is the world’s leading exhibition for the solar industry and its partners, attracting more than 40,000 visitors.
