MV POWER PLATFORM

1.0 / 1.25 / 1.4 /  1.5 / 1.6 MW

Modular utility-scale power solution

The SMA MV Power Platform—available as an open, shaded or enclosed structure—provides the most cost-effective way to modularly install large-scale PV power converters. These 1.0–1.6 megawatt medium-voltage turnkey power solutions include two Sunny Central inverters; a medium-voltage transformer; optional DC or AC/DC disconnect cabinets; and a control and supply panel for power distribution to local loads and (optionally) field tracker motors. They also feature easy integration with installer SCADA equipment; a modular, steel base with all component interconnection cabling; and a convenient plug-and-play installation scheme. Designed for Seismic Zone D applications, all configurations can be deployed for temperatures down to -40 °C. Each configuration can also be installed on a concrete slab, vault or piers for maximum flexibility.
