Alencon's Microgird Solutions


The Alencon SPOT - A Unique Appliance for Building the Microgrid of Tomorrow...Today

Today’s microgrids come in all shapes and sizes.  Some are truly micro, ranging in the multi-kilowatt range to others in the multi-megawatt range.   Some have PV, some do not. Some have storage integrated, some do not.

No matter what the size or design of your microgrid, Alencon’s SPOT DC-DC optimizer can be a great solution for making your microgrid design work efficiently. The SPOT is capable of taking four different power source inputs (typically PV, but is does not have to be) of varying power and voltage and outputting the exact voltage or even a voltage range required to interface to the of your microgrid.  For example, the SPOT could take four 1,000 volt PV strings as input and output voltage to 380 volts to power a building’s DC distribution system. As another example, the SPOT could take inputs from four 1,500 volt PV strings and follow a DC bus voltage between 900 and 1,100 volts to support a DC coupled Solar and Storage system.

Alencon’s SPOT can uniquely provide this ability thanks to its Galvanic Isolation. By placing an isolation transformer on each input, the SPOT can precisely control its voltage output. Thanks to its unique, proprietary manufacturing process, Alencon can deliver SPOTs specially configured to the exact requirements of your next microgrid project at the cost of an off the shelf solution.

Alencon is currently partnering with many leading microgrid developers to help deploy the microgrid designs of the future…today.  Contact Alencon today to learn how Alencon’s SPOT can help make your next microgrid project more successful. By integrating the Alencon SPOT into your microgrid design, the only limit is your imagination.

  • PV Plant Repowering

    Keep Your Existing PV Assets Running Strong!

    A PV plant's performance can diminish over the years for a variety of reasons, from module degradation to a host of other causes. Alencon technology can help breathe new life into your PV plant by maximizing power output from your existing modules and decreasing conduction losses to your inverter. Additionally, if your inverter fails and needs to be replaced, the Alencon SPOT is the solution of facilitating the replacement of a new inverter into an aged PV plant.
