AEG Power Solutions has released its 880 kVA central solar inverter, the Protect PV.800. The inverter offers improved features for grid connection, such as stabilizing reactive power input in case of load peaks. Fault ride-through (FRT) capabilities are configurable for voltages and current, and field programming allows for specific customization for all grid codes.

The Protect PV.800 is able to support up to 1,300 kWp, which extends the company's existing range of products for multi-megawatt utility-scale PV systems. The inverter can also be integrated in a turnkey container solution, TKS-C 1600, enabling a total nominal AC output of 1,600 kVA and the ability to connect to a DC generation capacity of up to 2600 kWp.

"Protect PV.800 is setting new technical standards as far as grid connection is concerned," says AEG's Bob Roos. "Growth in renewable energies will be more and more linked to the capacity of integrating them into the grid or in smart micro-grids."
