Satcon Selected For One Of California’s Largest Solar PV Power Plants

Satcon Technology Corporation® (NASDAQ CM: SATC), a leading provider of utility-scale power conversion solutions for the renewable energy market, today announced that it has been selected to supply 51 megawatts (MW) of its Equinox™ Prism Platform™ solution, a fully integrated multi-megawatt medium voltage (MV) building block, along with 1.5 MW of its next generation Equinox inverter systems. The Southern California installation will be interconnected to the San Diego Gas & Electric (SDGE) grid as a Qualified Facility for a Large Generator Interconnection Agreement (LGIA) under California Independent System Operator Corporation (CAISO) jurisdiction and will be one of the largest solar power plants in the state.

Equinox Prism Platform is a turnkey utility-grade multi-megawatt solution, complete with factory-integrated step-up transformers, MV disconnect switches, and power conversion electronics. The factory integrated solution leverages Satcon’s next-generation Equinox PV inverters with 98.5 percent peak efficiency and the industry’s widest thermal operating range, delivering the highest levels of performance and low installation costs enabling the industry’s lowest levelized cost of energy (LCOE).

Built upon Satcon's industry-leading PowerGate® Plus inverter family, the world's most widely-deployed large-scale solution with over 2.5 gigawatts sold to date, Equinox enhances system-wide energy harvest and solar plant yield, enabling the industry's highest return on investment (ROI). Equinox's advanced utility-ready features enable remote control of real and reactive power, low-voltage ride through and power factor control. The solution supports fast communications, allowing it to be easily integrated into SCADA systems through standardized communication interfaces.

All Satcon solutions include EDGE Adaptive Control Architecture (ACA)™, enabling instant voltage stabilization, frequency control, and dynamic grid support. EDGE ACA secures the continuous operation of the PV plant in the event of dynamic ground faults and achieves the performance guidelines set forth by the German Association of Energy and Water Industries (BDEW 2008 Grid Connection Standard).

This site is expected to be energized in the first half of 2013.
