New Solar Residential Battery/Inverter from Ginlong

 

  • The Chinese manufacturer has unveiled a hybrid product with a power range of 6.5-13 kW.
  • The device has a maximum efficiency of 98.4%, according to Ginlong, and battery charging/discharging efficiency of 97.5%

Chinese inverter manufacturer Ningbo Ginlong Technologies has launched a hybrid residential inverter it claims can ensure AC back-up for up to 10 kW of continuous power and 16 kVA of peak power.

The three-phase RHI-3P(5-10)K-HVES-5G battery inverter is available in four devices with power ratings of 6.5, 7.8, 10.4 and 13 kW. The product also features a maximum input voltage of 1,000 V per string, according to the manufacturer.

The transformer-free inverters have two maximum power point tracking (MPPT) channels, with MTTP voltage ranging from 200 V to 850 V. The products all measure 535x455x181mm and weigh 25.1kg. Maximum efficiency is 98.4% with a European efficiency rating of 97.7%, according to the manufacturer. Ginlong reports MTTP efficiency of 99.9% and battery charge/discharge efficiency of 97.5%.

The lithium-ion battery has charge/discharge power of 5, 6, 8 and 10 kW for the four inverters, with battery voltages of 160-600 V.

Ginlong says its hybrid inverter can operate at lower than 4,000m altitude and at temperatures of -25 to 60 degrees Celsius. The products also have an arc fault circuit interrupter (AFCI) function. “Power supply can be switched automatically and switching time [is]within 40 minutes,” the inverter maker said.

As with other 5G inverters produced by Ginlong, the new device uses a bipolar PWM control algorithm the company claims can reduce the change rate of common-mode voltage. Ginlong launched the 5G platform in August.

Green Building Africa promotes the need for net carbon zero buildings and cities in Africa. We are fiercely independent and encourage outlying thinkers to contribute to the #netcarbonzero movement. Climate change is upon us and now is the time to react in a more diverse and broader approach to sustainability in the built environment. We challenge architects, property developers, urban planners, renewable energy professionals and green building specialists. We also challenge the funding houses and regulators and the role they play in facilitating investment into green projects. Lastly, we explore and investigate new technology and real-time data to speed up the journey in realising a net carbon zero environment for our children.
