PATHION partners with Ampt a provider of power conversion technology for PV systems for its Energy Storage Systems to maximize performance
LOS GATOS, CALIF: PATHION Inc., announced today that it has selected and technically certified Ampt, LLC. as one of its key ecosystem members. Ampt delivers innovative power conversion technology and communications capabilities that improve the way PV systems are designed. Ampt String Optimizers are DC-to-DC converters that put maximum power point trackers (MPPTs) on each string of PV modules to improve the system’s lifetime performance. Ampt’s patented technology recovers approximately 60% of energy losses caused by the electrical imbalances which occur as systems performance degrades in large-scale PV+ESS systems. The result is harnessing every renewable power source to deliver what customers need to minimize the impact of grid-service costs.
“Like PATHION, Ampt works to solve energy challenges by designing and deploying innovative and efficient power conversion solutions,” said PATHION Chairman and CEO Mike Liddle. “We are excited to have them join our ecosystem, providing a full range of energy conversion products to complement our DirectCore Energy Storage Systems.”
PATHION Inc. manufactures, markets, and sells high-performance, safe, and reliable energy storage solutions. The product lineup features modular storage platforms with integrated advanced lithium-ion batteries ranging from 548 kilowatt-hours to over 4 megawatt-hours in a turn-key and plug and play solution. The combination of applications makes it possible to integrate PATHION ESS into virtually any operating environment and deliver the shortest possible payback time. PATHION products are built on our intellectual property for grid-tied and microgrid addressing both behind the meter and in front of the meter applications.
PATHION DirectCore™ technology is a patented integrated hardware and software solution to manage energy capture and release 24/7 making it affordable, efficient and sustainable across any renewable energy configuration in the market. The solution is more scalable than any AC-coupled storage system. Using DirectCore™ String Optimizers from Ampt, the PV Array is storage-ready, doesn’t need conversion and allows for higher panel energy production over the lifetime of the system and is scalable with the size of the array meaning storage capacity can be easily added or extended over time as needed.
“We are proud to be a supplier with a history of outstanding reliability, and functionality to the PATHION DirectCore Energy Storage Systems (ESS), said Levent Gun, CEO of Ampt. By working together, we will better enable our customers to realize more value out of their investments”.
