Su-Kam, a leading company in power back- up and solar solutions, has launched the Solar Grid-Tie Inverter. The newly launched product can be powered by mains as well as solar energy. It can work even voltage as low as 80 to 450 volts in DC and 150 to 280 volts in AC and is able to generate solar power even during low periods of sunshine. With an efficiency of almost 100%, the IEC- certified product can withstand dust and heavy rains. Low voltage along with erratic power supply is one of the major problems India faces with many states like Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar reporting the problem.
The inverter can also be connected to GSM Remote Monitoring application. This helps a customer to monitor the system from anywhere in the world. A customer can not only monitor the performance of the solar energy but also keep a record of up to 25 years. The inverter is equipped with an LCD screen which regularly monitors units of electricity being made, input and output voltage and the like. The inverter is priced in the range of Rs 52000 to Rs 86000 depending upon the capacity.
On the occasion, Mr. Kunwer Sachdev, Managing Director, Su-Kam said: "Su-Kam has always endeavoured to move a step ahead in solar innovation. The solar grid- tie inverter is designed to be highly efficient, yielding Return of Investment within a short span of three years. Equipped with state- of the art technology, the product is a viable option not only for commercial establishments but also for home- owners if their state has an active net-metering policy and pays a good price to residents for feeding excess solar electricity back to the grid."
Powered by highly advanced Dual Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) technology, the product is able to operate and adjust to the different intensity of light on a solar panel to extract the maximum solar power available. Being light –weight and transformer less, the grid tie-inverter can be even mounted on the wall. As it is a battery-less system, a customer is saved from the hassle of regular maintenance. The product can be connected to a bi-directional metre. This enables the user to monitor units of electricity being fed back into the grid if there is an active net-metering policy in his state.
For working of the Solar Grid-tie inverter, photo-voltaic solar panels are installed on rooftops that generate DC electricity as the sunlight falls on them. This DC electricity goes to the grid-tie inverter where it gets converted into usable AC electricity. Subsequently, it enters the main supply inlet and powers all connected load through solar power. If there is not ample sunshine, the system runs the load through the main power supply.
