SAN FRANCISCO, July 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Intersolar North America -- Advanced Energy Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq: AEIS) will highlight its suite of energy management solutions at Intersolar North America (Booth #L209) this week in San Francisco. Specifically, the company will be showcasing two of its newest solar inverters: its three-phase string inverter, the AE 3TL; and its 1-MW rated inverter, the AE 1000NX. The addition of these two new products emphasizes Advanced Energy's (AE) ongoing efforts to offer a broad selection of both distributed and central inverter solutions to meet the diverse design application needs of an expanding customer base.
"We're looking forward to featuring our newest products at Intersolar this year, and demonstrating to our customers and the industry our dedication to offering the best products and services for solar power design," said Gordon Tredger, president of Advanced Energy, Solar Energy. "Our broad range of inverters, which now includes the AE 1000NX and the AE 3TL, provide the production, system design, and grid integration features needed for next generation PV power plants. We're proud to be a trusted partner to solar project stakeholders across the globe, and believe these new products will help us to build on this reputation."
AE 1000NXThe AE 1000NX is a 1-MW rated utility-scale solar inverter built to meet the needs of forward-thinking utility and commercial solar project stakeholders. AE Solar Energy designed the AE 1000NX to provide solar power plant owners with reduced cost and increased energy harvest for a lower levelized cost of energy (LCOE), as well as advanced utility interactive controls to enable more seamless grid integration. A UL-certified version of the product is expected to be generally available in Q4 2013.To achieve the lowest LCOE, the AE 1000NX inverter includes a bipolar 1000V system topology to reduce balance of system (BoS) costs, a robust single engine and cooling system designed for less downtime and better system yield, and a combiner-level PV tie that allows system designers to reduce overall DC home run wiring costs by up to 40 percent. This can be optimized further with a turnkey PowerStation Integration Solution, comprised of a medium voltage transformer and supporting BoS that is factory assembled, tested, and accompanied by dedicated project management and engineering support.
