Recently, ReNew Power, India’s largest renewable energy IPP (Independent Power Producer) announced that its 300 MW solar plant at Pavagada Solar Park was successfully on commercial operation. It’s the largest project in terms of capacity that ReNew Power has commissioned to date and will help mitigate 0.6 million tonnes of CO2 emission per year.
This is the first utility scale PV plant in India uses high efficiency Mono PERC solar modules, fixed-tilted PV panels with a tilt angle of 15° due south and flat panel and Huawei FusionSolar 1500V smart string inverter. Especially this year, Huawei updates the traditional astronomical algorithm and adopt intelligent trackers based on AI algorithms to achieve the integration of tracker control and power supply, maximizing energy yields.
It’s worth mentioning that the SUN2000-95KTL-INH0 (“95KTL”) 1500Vdc smart interactive string inverters are used in this project. It’s a ground-breaking design in inverter technology, offering 12 strings intelligent monitoring and fast trouble-shooting, 6 MPPT per unit, effectively reducing string mismatch, maximum efficiency 99.0%, European efficiency 98.8%, PLCC (Power Line Carrier Communication) and Smart I-V Curve Diagnosis supported, no vulnerable parts like fuses and LCD, protection degree of IP65, high availability, high uptime and low O&M (“operation and maintenance”) cost. With the PLCC technology, no RS485 cables is required, which delivers a simpler system with safer and more reliable data transmission.
Pavagada Solar Park is located on the flat terrain with high radiation and very little rainfall. It’s part of Karnataka’s Solar Policy 2014-2021, which aims to shift the dependency from conventional power resources to eco-friendly energy resources. Huawei is very grateful to announce that string inverters have been installed on 3.5 GW of PV plants in India till this April. It’s honored to get together with ReNew Power passing the benefits of clean energy to everyone.
