The Switch inverter for India PV

Finnish power technology outfit The Switch has commissioned a 1MW single-module PV inverter for start-up Ultra Cosmic Solar Energy at a project in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu.

The Switch PVI 1000 series, which features a sealed power and controls enclosure section rated IP65/NEMA 4, is installed outside on a concrete foundation, with a built-in, standalone refrigerant-free cooling system.

“We are excited to be onboard and support a new player in the Tamil Nadu solar business with equipment for their first solar power plant,” says The Switch Indian country manager C Sundar.

“India is a challenging market where the features of The Switch PVI 1000 inverter fit very well,” he continues. “In addition to the reliability and simplified installation, the fault ride-through and grid support capabilities are very valuable in locations where the grid is weak.”
