Matt & Munaz installing an off-grid SMA Sunny Island 8.0H-11 battery inverter with a SolarEdge SE3500 grid-connect inverter set to respond to frequency dependant power reduction signalling from the Sunny Island.
Coen installing the new (second one ever made) SolaX X3 Hybrid inverter. This unit is the 10kW variant. These amazing inverters can be connected to up to a 500V d.c. battery and have a total of ten inverters operating in unison using just a single power meter connected to the master unit. Unbalanced 3phase load support is also unique.
Ian checks out the Neuton Power VRLA 600Ah lead-acid battery pack.
I love how Paul tells the story of energy storage, “once upon a time we used to use old technologies like lead and lithium, now we use super capacitors”.
It really does feel like super capacitors have appeared as a viable option for hybrid applications, and with some pretty awesome specifications.
Every battery has to have an edge and SimpliPhi Power has many: 15 years experience with lithium battery manufacture and deployment; adoption by the US Department of Defence for extreme environments; and the reliable choice for location power for many top film productions (Avatar).
Gary from MILSolar chats to Glen Morris about their new 5kW grid-connect inverter, designed and built in Melbourne, Victoria.
This is one awesome stand-alone inverter! Will have AS/NZS 4777.2 shortly so can be used for peak lopping of grid supply too. Perfect for microgrids as well.
