GSL Energy launches battery inverters for off-grid applications

GSL Energy has unveiled an all-in-one battery inverter for application in off-grid solar projects. The new product is available in two versions, with storage capacities of 10 kWh and 20 kWh. The devices have a maximum charging and discharging current of 80 A and 80 kWh of maximum battery power. It relies on a grid module with a rated input voltage of 220 V to 230 V and efficiency of more than 95 per cent. The inverter module has an efficiency rating of above 92 per cent, a rated output power of 5,000 VA, a peak output power of 10,000 VA, and a rated output voltage of 230 V.

The PV operational voltage range for the system is 60 V to 145 V, with a maximum PV input voltage of up to 145 V. The maximum power point tracking (MPPT) voltage spans a range of 60 V to 115 V. The new device uses forced air cooling to dissipate heat and has back-feed protection, overload protection, short-circuit protection, overvoltage and undervoltage protection, and short-circuit protection features.
