MV POWER STATION 2200 / 2475 / 2500 / 2750 / 3000 Contact SMA
The new Medium Voltage Power Station offers unique power density in a standard 20 feet sea freight container. The plug and play turnkey solution for easy transport, installation and commissioning allows for significant system cost reductions and enables power outputs of 2,200 kW / 2,475 kW at 1,000 VDC and 2,500 kW / 2,750 kW / 3,000 kW at 1,500 VDC system voltage. With its perfectly matched components Sunny Central or Sunny Central Storage inverter, a robust medium voltage transformer and medium voltage switchgear the MVPS is ready for global outdoor use at up to 55 °C.
Future-oriented 1,500 Volt technology enables remarkable system cost reductions in large PV power plants.
“The most immediate opportunity that we see for utility-scale PV system cost reduction is the installation of 1,500 Vdc systems. Higher-voltage systems enable longer strings, which allow for fewer combiner boxes, less wiring and trenching, and therefore less labor. According to our research, installing 1,500 VDC systems in place of now-standard 1,000 VDC can lower costs by as much as $0.05 per watt.” (...)
