Perfect combination of PV generation and energy storage
The INGECON SUN STORAGE 1Play battery inverters can generate an AC network and manage the power achieving an optimum balance between production, storage and consumption. To do so, they control all the time the energy flow between the PV generation (if it exists), the batteries and the grid. Featuring an advanced battery management technology, they ensure the maximum lifespan of the storage system.
Integrated PV input
These battery inverters integrate a PV input in order to offer greater functionalities. ThisPV input reduce the cost of the installation, allowing to have a battery inverter and a PV inverter in a single equipment.
This inverter features three operating modes:
- Stand-alone mode: The inverter generates a stand-alone AC grid and acts as a grid manager, guaranteeing the correct balance between generation, consumption and the storage system. To do so, it controls the energy flow between the grid and the batteries, based on the status at any given time. The ISS 1Play makes it possible to integrate a solar energy source into the grid, as it features a PV input. The back-up power source (a diesel genset or the public grid) will only inject power when the batteries’ state of charge is lower than a certain threshold
- UPS (Back-up) mode: This operation mode has been designed for grid-connected systems, where grid outages are long and frequent. In order to guarantee this uninterruptible power supply, the inverter maintains the batteries fully charged. During a grid outage, the battery inverter generates the AC grid and the energy stored in the batteries is used to power the loads.
- Self-consumption mode: This operating mode is conceived to minimise grid consumption. If the energy generated is greater than the one demanded, any surplus energy will charge the batteries or, if they are fully charged, the energy could be injected into the grid. If the loads demand more energy than the one produced by the renewable sources, then the batteries would cover this demand, increasing the self-consumption ratio.
