Magnetek Announces PVI-CENTRAL-100kW Units For Solar Systems

Magnetek, Inc. announced that PVI-CENTRAL-100 kW units with 208 and 480Vac output voltages are currently available for delivery. The PVI-CENTRAL-100 grid-tied system is designed for commercial solar applications such as office, apartment, or industrial buildings. The inverter’s Insulated Gate Bi-polar Transistors (IGBTs) reduce thermal energy losses for optimum performance, and Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) maximizes energy produced under varying light conditions. A wide operating voltage range of 330-600Vdc increases energy collected.

"The PVI-CENTRAL-100 delivers a unique combination of efficiency, flexibility and redundancy to the renewable energy market, demonstrating our ongoing commitment to world-class energy solutions," said Ross Smith, Vice President of Magnetek’s alternative energy group.

These commercial-grade inverters feature scalability in a common-enclosure package that is delivered pre-configured and pre-tested. According to the company, in addition to reducing on-site installation wiring and testing, this industry-leading technology provides cost-effective solutions with smaller footprints and increased reliability.

When the voltage drops below 300Vdc the unit goes off line, providing nighttime disconnection of the transformer to eliminate undesired losses. A string combiner box is optionally available to parallel, protect and monitor all of the photovoltaic strings and to enhance the monitoring and diagnostic capabilities of the system.
