MIT Chooses Solectria Inverter for Library Array

[RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Solectria Renewables is supplying a PVI13kW inverter for a 12.6 kW photovoltaic (PV) system at the Hayden Memorial Library on the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) campus in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The Hayden site, which has been in service since 2004, is the largest photovoltaic system at MIT. With the Solectria inverter in place, the PV system can convert the direct current energy produced by the array into electricity that can then be fed directly into the building’s alternating current electrical system without batteries or maintenance. The PVI13KW includes both a DC disconnect and a fused AC disconnect, an AC contactor for zero Watt standby loss, an optional built-in 7-fuse PV combiner, a premium efficiency transformer and filter, and a state-of-the-art DSP-controlled, trench-gate IGBT inverter core. The unit was fully assembled and tested at Solectria Renewables’ Lawrence, MA facilities.
