What kind of Huawei inverters are on the market?
Huawei has Residential, Commercial and Utility scale string inverters on the market.
What are residential inverters?
The residential inverters of Huawei cover the need of household systems with modern design, easy installation, battery and optimizer ready solution (2-5KTL single phase) and a powerful mobile app. The residential products are to following: SUN2000L 2,3,3.68, 4, 4.6, 5KTLs (single phase), SUN2000 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10KTL-M0s.
What are commercial inverters?
The commercial inverters cover the smaller and middle size rooftop and ground mounted projects including 12, 15, 17, 20KTL-M0s, 33KTL-A, 36KTL and 60KTL-M0. These inverters come with multiple MPPTs, PLC/MBUS communication (33KTL-A, 36KTL and 60KTL-M0), SmartLogger1000/1000A for the most efficient communication and powerful mobile tools and apps for the help of the quick installation and commissioning.
What are utility-scale inverters?
Utility scale inverters cover the most powerful solutions of Huawei for the biggest projects: 105KTL-H1, 185KTL-H1 using 1500Vdc/800Vac for the highest efficiency, SmartLogger2000 for the top quality system setup, and the premium IV Curve analysis.
What are the monitoring devices of Huawei?
Huawei inverters communicate with the monitoring system, Neteco and FusionSolar, using 2 methods: SUN2000L 2-5KTLs and 3-20KTL-M0s are able to communicate with the server on their own using the built in WIFI module or the WLAN/4G dongle. In case of system containing more than 10 devices SmartLogger1000A/2000 is used for the communication between the inverters, the external or 3rd party devices, and the monitoring system.
What is PLC/MBUS?
PLC and MBUS is the exclusive technology used by Huawei for the communication between the inverters and the monitoring device (SmartLogger), using the AC cables. This means that in systems using PLC/MBUS there is no need to prepare the RS485 cable communication line, which makes the installation and the maintenance cheaper and easier.
What is the difference between PLC/MBUS and RS485 communication?
PLC/MBUS uses the AC cables for communication with the monitoring device (SmartLogger), but the communication can be set up through RS485 connecting the inverters in daisy chain with the last one connected to the SmartLogger. The advantage of PLC/MBUS is that there is no need to buy and install extra communication cable between the inverters and the monitoring device, which makes the project cheaper and more reliable.
Does Huawei inverters support optimized systems?
SUN2000L inverters have Anti-Islanding protection, DC reverse polarity protection, Insulation monitoring, DC lightening protection, AC lightening protection, Residual current monitoring, AC overcurrent protection, AC short-circuit protection, AC overvoltage protection, Over-heat protection.
