The Aurora PVI-6000-OUTD-US 6000 watt Grid-tie Inverter by Power-One utilizes high-efficiency power-conversion technologies and high-speed independent Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) channels to increase the amount of usable power that is available from renewable-energy installations. The Aurora PVI-6000-OUTD-US 6000 watt grid tie inverter optimizes energy harvesting while significantly increasing the ROI of residential solar-power plants.
Designed for residential and small commercial PV installations, this inverter fills a specific niche in the Aurora product line to cater for those installations producing between 5kW and 25kW. This inverter has all the usual Aurora benefits, including dual input section to process two strings with independent MPPT, high speed and precise MPPT algorithm for real-time power tracking and energy harvesting, as well as transformerless operation for high performance efficiencies of up to 97.1%.The wide input voltage range makes the inverter suitable to low power installations with reduced string size. This outdoor inverter has been designed as a completely sealed unit to withstand the harshest environmental conditions.
The revolutionary switching technology utilized in the Aurora PVI-6000-OUTD-US inverter includes state of the art silicon power devices such as CoolMOS and Insulated Gate Bi-Polar Transistors(IGBTs) to reduce switching losses. Aurora has been designed with large de-rating criteria on all critical components, achieving an extremely robust and reliable inverter designed to last for 25 years and to deliver true maximum output power on a continuous basis.
With this design concept, peak efficiencies of over 97% are achieved. Total current harmonic distortion, on the other hand, is typically less than 1%(5000/6000) or 2%(3600) through the use of high-frequency switching techniques.
