Huawei released many new products at its first global FusionSolar Smart PV virtual show on June 11, 2020. These include commercial and residential smart inverters, second generation optimisers, residential energy storage systems and the new FusionSolar 6.0+ solution for utility-scale solar projects. For commercial solar applications, the SUN2000 – 30/36/ 40KTL-M3 inverter was released, which is reportedly more efficient and compact. Huawei has upgraded the security level to IP66. It comes with the leading arc-fault circuit interrupter (AFCI) technology and it can identify arc features in 200-metre cables in commercial projects, making it safer and more accurate. In the residential space, single-phase inverter SUN2000-2-6KTL-L1 was launched, along with the second generation of optimiser SUN2000-450W-P, with better reported efficiencies and yields. The products are equipped with artificial intelligence (AI) technologies, so that the AFCI feature can continue self-learning from the database of millions of arcs’ features and provide ultimate safety. In addition, with the new Pinpoint Arc Fault Positioning, troubleshooting time can now be reduced by 80 per cent.
At the same time, a residential energy storage solution LUNA2000-5/10/15-S0 with a modular design was launched, which reportedly provides more usable energy. For utility-scale applications, the FusionSolar 6.0+ Utility Smart PV Solution was launched, which has various AI boost features such as the Smart Tracker Control Algorithm, Smart I-V Curve Diagnosis 4.0 and the Smart Grid-connection Algorithm. This helps achieve grid parity with AI technologies and provides an optimal levellised cost of energy and grid supporting solutions. Smart I-V Curve Diagnosis 4.0 can reportedly analyse a 100 MW plant within 15 minutes, with industry-leading accuracy and will be compatible with various settings, for example, bifacial and shingled modules. Moreover, the AI-supported Smart Grid-connection Algorithm can enable plant operation to be more stable even under an extremely weak power grid.
