KACO new energy releases hybrid inverter
KACO new energy is now launching its first hybrid inverter onto the market and is offering it together with the battery and mains disconnector as a system from a single source.
KACO new energy presents its hybrid inverter for the first time at the Energy Storage Europe show in Düsseldorf. With the acquisition of the storage provider Energy Depot last autumn, the German PV pioneer secured the market-ready technology. The inverter is now available as blueplanet hybrid 10.0 TL3. It is aimed at operators of residential and small commercial solar PV systems that want to combine the advantages of solar energy with power storage.
The blueplanet hybrid 10.0 TL3 is the control center of the solar-powered energy storage system: It provides connections for battery, PV system and public power grid. Several batteries can be connected to the hybrid inverter — even as a retrofit. In this way, it can always be adapted to the energy demand. The new hybrid inverter provides three-phase grid feeding and compensates for fluctuations in consumption within 100 milliseconds. When it feeds electricity into the grid, it achieves an efficiency of 98%, and a high 97% when charging and discharging the batteries. In addition, the inverter has excellent partial load characteristics.
KACO new energy offers the blueplanet hybrid 10.0 TL3 together with battery and mains disconnector as a complete package under the name blueplanet hy-store. It is the only storage system on the market that can also set up a three-phase stand-alone grid with a full 10 kilowatts of power. The next development stage envisages automatic island switching to enable reliable emergency power operation. This functionality is to be implemented by a software update.
The blueplanet hybrid 10.0 TL3 has an integrated energy management system. It enables the reliable compensation of consumers and the limitation of the maximum grid feed-in. These functions can be extended with the OpenEMS developed by Fenecon GmbH. This allows various functions to be implemented for monitoring or for controlling other components.
