Central Inverters: GrIP

Central Inverters

Alencon’s Grid Inverter Package (GrIP) modules set a new standard for PV central inverters in terms of their size, cost, performance and reliability. GrIPs come in 2.5 MW modules and can easily be scaled up to the multi-megawatt level. Each GrIP has a footprint that is about the size of a typical home refrigerator. GrIPS are paired with Alencon’s String Power Optimizers and Transmitters (SPOTs) and tied into a centralized 2,500V DC Bus. This integration assures both maximum energy yield with minimal line losses.
