Grid tie solar power inverter

Schneider Electric

Schneider Electric has recently combined several of its products into solar solutions packages in order to better provide solutions for a wide array of PV markets including solar farms, large commercial, residential, off-grid and backup power; these products range from inverters, switch gear, to monitoring and security solutions.

One of those products is the Schneider Electric Xantrex™ GT500 which has a competitive price and performance ratio and features Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) algorithm to maximize the energy harvested from the PV array. Also featured is the 30 kW high-performance, transformerless Schneider Electric Xantrex GT30 grid-tie solar inverter that makes utility-interactive installations easier and more cost effective. This unit offers superior PV energy harvest, easy installation, and a compact, ultra-lightweight design.

Among its residential solutions, Schneider Electric offers its Xantrex XW Hybrid inverter/charger and Xantrex GT grid-tie single-phase inverter. The Schneider Electric Xantrex XW features sine-wave power and advanced battery charging technology. This product can be used in either a grid-tied with battery backup or off-grid application to suit a wide variety of installations. The single-phase GT offers a high efficiency, clean aesthetics, reliability, and a low installed cost, through ease of installations and integrated features.
