The German inverter manufacturer SMA Solar Technology AG has launched a new hybrid inverter for private and commercial PV roof systems.

The Sunny Tripower Smart Energy is a compact two-in-one device for operating heat pumps and electric charging stations. It can be connected via integrated interfaces. The DC-coupled hybrid inverter is available in four power classes: 5kW, 6kW, 8kW and 10kW. It can be used with a maximum PV array power of 7.5kW to 15kW and a maximum input voltage of 1,000V.

The transformerless inverter measures 500mm x 598mm x 173mm and weighs 30kg. It also features natural convection cooling and IP65 protection.

The device can reach a maximum efficiency of 98.2% and a maximum European efficiency of 97.5%. According to the manufacturer, it is compatible with DC-coupled high-voltage lithium-ion batteries from leading suppliers.

"The three-phase hybrid inverter, with its fast charging and discharging capability, ensures maximum battery utilization even in changeable weather," says SMA. "The integrated automatic backup power supply ensures that consumers in the household can continue to operate in the event of a power failure."

The manufacturer also states that the inverter has a charging capacity of up to 30A and that it is suitable for new and existing PV systems.

The device can be easily installed in just a few steps. Commissioning is also possible intuitively via the SMA Installer App 360° without having to open the hybrid inverter. SMA's own "Shade Fix" software ensures that the photovoltaic yields are maximized even in light shading. In addition, the devices are automatically monitored.
