Heat waves are striking globally, and it is imperative to curb the speed of global warning with the use of renewable energy; how to implement the applications of renewable energy and Net Zero carbon reduction have become important issues that governments and enterprises around the world are now focusing on. Taiwan is on the Tropic of Cancer and has sufficient sunshine all year long, which makes it very suitable for solar photoelectricity development; however, it also often faces the challenge of difficult land acquisition. As a matter of fact, many lands in coastal areas of Taiwan are often abandoned due to subsidence or severe salt damages, which caused them to be geologically unfavorable for farming. The construction of solar farms not only can bring a ray of life to the revitalization of barren lands, neither will it affect the development of normal agriculture; the considerable carbon reduction effects that it can bring due to the renewable energy are also extremely meaningful nowadays when global warming is intensifying.

The Sen Ju Green Energy Solar Farm located at Fangyuan Township, Changhua County is a ground-based solar farm built on such barren lands. The capacity of the devices of this farm is 2MW, and they all use PrimeVOLT’s 60kW three phase on-grid PV inverters. The owner stated that Changhua County has sufficient sunlight, and according to the data from Taipower, the average daily power generation per 1 kW of solar power is as high as 3. 55KWH, which is the highest average power generation among all counties and cities in Taiwan. It is estimated that its investment payback period will be the shortest in all counties and cities in Taiwan; it is extremely economical. More importantly, the annual power generation of the farm is as high as 2. 6 million KWH. According to the statistics of Taipower, the average power usage per household for 2021 was 352KWH, which means that this farm can provide electricity for over 600 households for a year; it can even reduce carbon emission by approximately 1300 tons per year, which is the annual carbon intake of over 3 Daan Forest Park. Because of the construction of the solar energy system on the barren lands that are unfavorable for farming, its actual carbon reduction contribution to the global environment cannot be underestimated.

PrimeVOLT’s business associate, Ming-Chung Fan stated that: “PrimeVOLT’s 60/75kW upgraded performance inverters lead the industry and were the first to obtain 440/460/480V VPC certificates; they meet the needs of Taipower and are applicable to the different power environments in Taiwan. They can reduce the cost of transformers that the customers need to configure for 440/460V voltage systems. After thePrimeVOLT60/75kW upgraded performance inverter series were launched, there were high inquiries from the industry; currently, the cumulative installed capacity in Taiwan has exceeded 220 MW.”

Facing the need of large-scale power plant constructions, in order to reduce unit costs for solar power modules, they are continually developing towards large sizes/high-power/high current; high-power inverter models will become mainstream. PrimeVOLT is about to launch the highly anticipated high-power flagship series – 110KW/380V and 125KW/480V three phase on-grid inverters in the fourth quarter; the new models have up to 9 sets of MPPT, 18 string output, and the maximum DC input current of the string is as high as16/20A. They meet the high-power module configurations in the future and can lower the construction costs of power plants effectively.

The government announced that the wholesale electricity price rate for the first half of the year was lower than expected, and this is bound to push the number of constructions of solar power plants; optimistic outlook for the solar power market is expected. As a major local inverter manufacturer, PrimeVOLT is not only known from its products with outstanding quality, it also has a powerful and professional research and development team that can quickly respond to EPC customers from the early planning of power plants, to before the completion of the power plant, including investigations by Taipower, regulatory trends, replacement plan evaluation and suggests and all other technical consultations. PrimeVOLT became the most trusted partner of many EPC customers with the value-for-money services they provided that are rare in the industry.

In 2021, under unstable factors such as lack of materials and increased prices in the market, PrimeVOLT inverters were still adopted by many solar farms across Taiwan, and its market share still ranks number two; this shows its strength. PrimeVOLT will continue to launch new inverter products in the future that meet market trends with the most competitiveness in the market to satisfy the needs of customers.

PrimeVOLT inverters won the “Taiwan Excellent PV” award

The Taiwan Excellent PV award held by the Bureau of Energy has entered the ninth year this year, and this year, inverters were included in the competition for the first time; it is the highest quality award for the inverter industry. The major inverter manufacturer, PrimeVOLT, participated in the competition with its three phase inverter series and won the award. The award was presented by the President Ing-Wen Tsai on the 8th, and the General Manager of PrimeVOLT, Chin-Ming Chuang, received the award.

The “2021 Taiwan Excellent PV” award was reviewed according to the national standard (CNS) of the Republic of China (Taiwan); the review contents include the parallel verifications of the inverters, the verification of safety specifications, and the verification of electromagnetic compatibilities, etc. In addition, it was confirmed that the products can adapt to rigorous environments according to the US ASTM B368-09 Copper Accelerated Acetic Acid Salt Spray (CASS) high corrosive test item, and the inverter that is most suitable for the island-type special environment of Taiwan was selected. Most large-scale solar power plants are constructed on salt flat lands in recent years; the high salt environment and the intertidal impacts are rigorous tests to power electronic equipment; general salt spray tests could no longer verify its adaptability.

The PrimeVOLT inverter that won the award is a one-piece aluminum casting box with IP66 dust-proof and waterproof levels, and passed IEC 60068-2-52: 2017 severity 5 salt spray test; it is suitable for use in Taiwan’s island-type humid and rigorous environments. The two sets of MPPT can input independently or in parallel; the built-in DC junction box function has features including PF 0.9 real power output without derating. The design of the appearance also won the Golden Pin Design Award awarded by the Industrial Development Bureau, Ministry of Economic Affairs.

Energy Taiwan will be exhibited at Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center, Hall 2 from 12/8-10, PrimeVOLT will also showcase its latest smart solar photovoltaic inverter series. Chin-Ming Chuang stated that PrimeVOLT inverters won the Taiwan Excellent PV award, which shows its product strengths, and they comply with industry trends. The new inverter products displayed this time are equipped with AFCI (Arc-fault circuit interrupter) arc detection functions that can detect abnormal statuses of the solar power plants automatically, reducing fire and electrical shock hazards and improving safety. The input current is increased to 12. 5A to satisfy high-performance module configurations, and are equipped with nighttime reactive power compensation, meeting the needs of Taipower’s large scale solar power farms. They also support 380V three phase three wire and three phase four wire power systems, which makes wiring more flexible, in which the 22kW inverter is equipped with fan-less natural cooling design, making it more suitable for poultry and livestock house farms.

The new 75kW function upgraded version even leads the industry and is the first to obtain 440/460/480Vac output voltage VPC certificates, suitable for different power environments; it can reduce construction costs of solar power farms, and are more suitable for applications at large-scale power plants, factories and other special power environments.
