The coupling of the Ingeteam inverter and BYD’s batteries delivers a complete hybrid system aimed at capturing and maximising solar energy resources. The versatility of the combined inverter and battery box enable a stand-alone, back-up (UPS) mode or self consumption mode, enabling on-grid systems to store solar energy during the day for use at night without risk of a power outage in case of a grid blackout, prioritising the maximum self-consumption ratio at the same time.
During the certification process, BYD implemented a new battery capacity calibration system to improve the measuring and control of the state of charge of the battery. This newest feature was also implemented and certified within the Ingeteam inverter.
BYD’s LiFePO4 high voltage battery, with its 5.1 kWh and 6.4 kWh of capacity -depending on the model-, has been conceived for residential and commercial use, storing the electric energy and optimising the installation’s energy efficiency thanks to the stabilisation of the power supplied.
The Ingeteam hybrid inverter makes it possible to connect a PV array and a battery bank to the same unit, thereby reducing the cost of the system as a whole. This is a 3 or 6 kW single-phase transformerless inverter, to address residential and commercial installations.
