From March 2 to 4, 2016, Smart GRID EXPO, Japan’s most influential industry exhibition was held as scheduled. As the global leader of the Smart PV industry, Huawei took part in the exhibition with the FusionSolar Smart PV solution 3.0 and a new type of Smart PV controller and shared with the industry the advanced ideology and technical achievements of Huawei Smart PV, as well as the future direction of Huawei PV.
About more than 80 thousand visits from over 1950 exhibitors from multiple countries and regions participated the exhibition event. Huawei FusionSolar Smart PV solution 3.0 was most favored by visitors. Especially in UHV and HV scenarios, Huawei FusionSolar becomes the best choice for Japan’s PV customers due to the low initial investment (more than 5%), high energy yield (more than 5%), fine-grained intelligent O&M (efficiency improved by 50%), and long-term secure and reliable operating.
Smart PV, changing for you
As the second largest PV market in Asia after China, Japan has always been marked as preciseness and standard, and has a strict check on imported PV products. Besides, as the subsidies continuously decrease due to the FIT adjustment, products with high energy yield and high quality became the core focus of this exhibition.
Visitors in a lively discussion
Huawei has successfully cooperated with Japanese top enterprises such as DaiwaHouse, Mitsubishi, KYOCERA, West Holdings, and Power Max. The FusionSolar Smart PV solution has become the mainstream in the Japanese market. Thanks to the high-quality performance and excellent power quality, Huawei inverters made successful large-scale grid-tied cases in the top ten power enterprises of Japan, and won high evaluation from Japanese customers.
The PV industry in the new era is not just large terrestrial power stations. A variety of new types of PV plants, such as solar-agriculture plants, solar-fishery plants, and floating plants emerge. This is especially suitable for Japan that is short of land resources. In different areas, the power stations in various scenarios require suitable solutions. Huawei FusionSolar Smart PV 3.0 successfully reaches the goal and brings maximum benefits for customers in different scenarios.
Top customers in deep communication
Smart PV upgrades, and the 3.0 era starts
With the declined trend of Japan FIT subsidies, the construction cost, energy yield, and O&M of PV power stations have become the primary factors considered by power station investors. Huawei Smart PV solution 3.0 inherits the characteristics of simple site setup, high energy yield, and safety and reliability, and further enhances the PR efficiency based on the deep understanding and analysis of scenarios. Especially in UHV and HV scenarios, Huawei FusionSolar becomes the best choice for Japan’s PV customers undoubtedly due to the low initial investment, high energy yield (more than 5%), fine-grained intelligent O&M (efficiency improved by 50%), and long-term secure and reliable operating.
Optimal solutions in the UHV and HV scenarios
In this exhibition, Huawei showed the Smart PV solution 3.0 dedicated for the Japanese market and the core component, that is, a new type of Smart PV controller 33KTL-JP/40KTL-JP. Each controller supports four routes of MPPT and provides eight routes of high-precision Smart PV string monitoring function which reduces the fault location time by 80%. Meanwhile, the system provides neither inverter rooms nor consumables such as fuses, and cools as the temperature drops, which significantly improves the reliability. The simplified design reduces system fault points. As a result, the inverter fault affects only a small scope of services and the services quickly resume through device replacement. Compared with traditional PV plant solutions in the Japanese market, Huawei Smart PV solution reduces the initial investment by 5% and increases the energy yield by 5% or more.
