KS-certified Commercial PV Inverters

The commercial PV inverter solutions covering SG33CX, SG50CX,
SG110CX, made local industry headlines as the full range of the
portfolio received KS certificates
this June which is the world's first-ever achievement. Equipped with
multiple MPPTs, the 1000Vdc solutions are compatible with bi-facial
modules and enable optimal yields in complex terrains. They're also
resilient to harsh conditions armed with an IP66 and C5 corrosion class
protection. Given the high performance, over 2.5 GW of Sungrow
commercial inverters were shipped across the globe and the amount is
expected to mount in 2020.

SG250HX, The World's Most Powerful 1500Vdc String Inverter

The show highlights the world's most powerful 1500Vdc string inverter
SG250HX, KS-certified as well, which is ideal for small- and
medium-scale solar plants. The SG250HX features 12 MPPTs with maximum
efficiency of 99% and enables flexible block design. Compatible with
bi-facial modules and tracking systems, the solution can significantly
maximize ROI for a PV project. Particularly with IP66 and C5 protection
together with the smart forced air-cooling technology, the inverter can
operate without derating even when the temperature is surging to 50
degrees Celsius.

SG3125HV-30, A Latest 1500Vdc Outdoor Central Inverter

The latest 1500Vdc outdoor central inverter SG3125HV-30 on display
features three-level topology technology and the maximum inverter
efficiency reaching 99%. It is designed with DC/AC ratio up to 1.8,
enabling cost-saving on Balance of System (BoS) at large. The inverter
relies on temperature-controlled forced air-cooling technology,
integrated zone monitoring for online analysis and troubleshooting. It
is compatible with the DC-coupling energy storage system, enabling 60%
of the rated power charge from grid.

Sungrow brings new portfolio for energy storage segment as well,
including the Power Conversion System (PCS) SC3150UD which allows a wide
DC voltage operation range among 700-1500Vdc. It comes with a high
overall protection capability of IP65 and an anti-corrosion level of C5,
ideal for installations in coastal areas.

Over 1 GW Deployed in South Korea

With the local branch established two years ago, Sungrow has over 1 GW of its inverter solutions deployed in South Korea as of June 2020,
showing the leading position in the emerging Asian solar hub. Landmark
projects where Sungrow supplied include a newly operational 93 MW solar
plant in Yeongam, which is one out of the only two projects of
approximate 100 MW capacity in the country, and is expected to produce
120 GWh per year.

"South Korea is a vibrant solar
market and Sungrow is boosting efforts to prop up local decarbonization
ambitions and surging demands. As a pivotal player with a comprehensive
local team offering technical support, sales and after-sale service,
we'll keep bringing forth innovations that are compatible with local
grid codes and addressing diverse applications with lower LCOE,  despite
the changing landscape and current coronavirus situation," commented
Hoseob Kim, Country Manager of Sungrow Korea.
