The SMA Power Plant Controller offers intelligent and flexible solutions for the park control of all PV power plants in the megawatt range. It is suitable for PV power plants with central inverters as well as for those with decentralized string inverters. With simulation tools valuable predictions on the behaviour of the Power Plant Controller and the design of the plant are already possible before the commissioning of a PV power plant.
The parametrization and configuration of the Power Plant Controller can be performed with ease via remote access. With easy expandability for new communication protocols, standards for individual connections and a modular design, the Power Plant Controller is well suited to meet the future requirements of PV power plants.
The SMA Power Plant Controller manages all parametres which are necessary for a constant stability of the grids.
New target values for reactive power or the power factor are implemented in a matter of seconds.
Predefined values for reactive power or the power factor are recieved and then implemented on time.
Constant reactive power or a power factor are made available on a permanent basis or by request.
Dynamically specified values for reactive power or powqer factor are managed at the grid connection point.
Ramp Rate Control
The increase rate of active power is limited.
There is a seamless reduction of active power.
Active power control
Automatic reduction of active power at a defined grid frequency according to a definable characteristic curve.
SMA inverters like the new Sunny Central CP-XT accomplish the functions of the Power Plant Controller.
Q at Night
PV plants can also provide reactive power at night. Constant or dynamic values are preset.
Dynamic grid support
The inverter stays connected to the grid during voltage drops and supports the grid by feeding reactive power.
