Up to 8% higher AC energy output

Higher energy output inverter system for 150kW and larger solar solutions with reliable distributed architecture design

Completely Different from the Rest:

The distributed architecture design of the Ray Max® Power Island Inverter system has proven itself in the field with 4 to 8% higher energy output results measured at the 10 sites, totaling 22MW, installed solar solutions. The Ray Max ® Inverter System incorporates a patented distributed architecture which optimizes low light energy harvesting. These systems are capable of exporting energy starting at 650 watts for early morning, late evening and during cloudy conditions.

The Best Solution:

AC energy output – up to 8% higher performance

Predictive models and customer validation document up to 8% higher energy output with the Nextronex RayMax Inverter systems. Low light energy harvesting, distributed architecture and equipment reliability are a few of the factors that translate into higher ROIs for our customers.

Distributed Architecture – optimized energy harvesting

Nextronex inverters begin exporting energy at only 650 watts and continue optimizing inverter performance during early morning, late afternoon and cloudy conditions. Nextronex funnels the entire array’s output to as few inverters as needed allowing each to run at peak efficiency.

Reliability – Inverter system uptime and extended lifetime

Inverter switching algorithms with a Master/Slave operation increases system reliability and uptime which also extends inverter lifetime. The ability to switch inverters minimizes the effect of a single inverter failure by allowing the operation to bypass an inverter if one is available.

System Efficiency – design and installation

1,000 V DC configurations, with low profile inverters for center-of-array placement, represents a 40% increase in operating voltage and a 40% reduction in home run wiring. Transformerless inverters, operating up to 98% efficiency, feed our medium voltage, air-cooled, TP1 Load Centers to combine the functions of a low voltage inverter side with a medium voltage step-up to 15 and 35 kV class. This allows the system to achieve an overall efficiency of greater then 96%.

Smart Controller – Optimizing your investment

The smart-grid ready Smart Controllers handle all inverter sequencing, monitoring and telemetry functions with automated communications of data with Nextronex-supplied revenue grade metering.

1000 V solution

  • Wire savings and less wiring loss

Distributed Architecture

  • We funnel up to 2MW of panels to as few inverters as needed at any instant of time
  • Reliable because inverters rest more then they run, if there is a faulted unit it is automatically bypassed to generate 100% of the available energy 98% of the time
  • Ease of maintenance and repair because there is no need to take the system down for repairs

Transformerless Inverter

  • Optimal coupling voltage
  • Highest system efficiency
  • Proprietary Load Center for MV output class, meets all utility safety and grounding requirements and eliminates 480 V Bus and Panel Boards

System Controller:

  • SCADA Built in
  • SMART Grid Ready
  • No need for 3rd party monitoring
  • Revenue grade meters and weather systems available
  • Wireless modem included
