The 1500 Volt modus operandi

The 1500 Volt modus operandi

Belectric has proven the perks of going 1,500 V. The company in fact states that it is the first to deploy a 1,500 VDC modus operandi in the history of the PV industry. Belectric connected a 1,500 VDC plant to the grid in Germany. The Deutsche Kreditbank financed project utilized Padcon’s 1,500 V capable inverter station. The liquid-cooled outdoor central inverters were manufactured by Power Conversion, the Berlin-based division of GE Energy. Padcon and Power Conversion collaborated to integrate the inverters into the system.

PID KILLER has a new look

PID KILLER has a new look

After four successful years in a battle against PID, PADCON is equipping its Float Controller with even more convenience and new functions.

The handling has now been redesigned to make it much more convenient based on many years of practical experience and constructive feedback from numerous customers. The PADCON Float Controller now gives you the opportunity to set voltage thresholds via DIP switches and thus to configure the units individually on site for any inverter. The "Time delay" function is available immediately for perfectly synchronised multi MPPT operation and the newly integrated reverse polarity protection enables PADCON to add more inverter manufacturers to its compatibility list.

PID KILLER exceeds all expectations - PR improvement of more than 13% within one month.

PID KILLER exceeds all expectations

Module degradation due to PID and the economic loss caused by this effect are serious problems that have arrived in the middle of PV business and which everybody is talking about.

PADCON Float Controller offers a unique alternative. It allows the operation of an ungrounded system and simultaneously fights the PID-effect. Technically it is realized with an active lifting of the positive potential. Based on the fact that modules do not see negative voltage to ground anymore PID affected modules will be regenerated and prevented from happening in the future.
