Sungrow has revealed its latest technology after unveiling the world’s first 1500V string inverter.
The SG80HV, which was unveiled at the AsiaSolar 2016 solar tradeshow last month, has a power output of 80KW.
The technology has been designed with a next-generation film capacitor designed to prolong the lifetime of the inverter.
Dr David Zhao, senior vice president of Sungrow, said:“1500V solar systems are expected to dramatically reduce system costs and improve power generation efficiency. The solar industry has long demanded a 1500V string inverter, and Sungrow surprised many with our release of the SG80HV, developed by our global-leading R&D team.
“As the world’s first 1500V string inverter, SG80HV is the pinnacle of solar inverter technology, and we hope it will encourage further industry growth by increasing PV plant ROI.”
