Copernico TL

Applications

  • LV photovoltaic power plants
  • MV/HV photovoltaic power plants
  • Stand alone photovoltaic power plants with energy storage system
  • Grid connected photovoltaic power plants with energy storage system
  • Hybrid power generation station
  • Peak shaving
  • Load balancing
  • Time shifting
  • High reliability

    • Longer time between maintenance activities
    • Reduction of energy production losses due to inverter failure
  • High efficiency

    • Some competitors declare only the maximum efficiency
    • Copernico’s efficiency is measured in the real operating conditions with all the auxiliary circuit connected
  • Low current distortion

    • Competitor’s average values are in the range 3–4%
    • Lower current distortion leads to a general reduction of the energy losses in conductors and transformers
  • Wide MPPT range

    • One of the widest (370Vdc) among inverter manufacturers
    • The energy production of the PV array is maximised
  • High output voltage in TL series (300 Vac)

    • Competitor’s average values 270–280 Vac y
    • Higher voltage = Lower current
    • Smaller AC cables and circuit breakers
  • Simplified installation

    • Single mechanical structure up to 500 kW
    • Space saving thanks to:
    • Small foot-print for all the range
    • Reduced installation clearances
  • Wide range availability of accessories for PV plants

    • Array Monitor (stings boxes)
    • Green Power Guardian (monitoring System)
    • PV sensors to measure environmental temperature, PV panel temperature, solar radiation
