The StorEdge SE7600A-USS & SE3800A-USS hybrid grid tie inverter has the capability to use energy storage to enhance self-consumption of solar energy. This is useful when net-metering, or grid feed is not available, or not advantageous financially. This system uses DC coupling for both the solar and the connection to the battery system for greater overall efficiency. The system features export control, time-of-use shifting, maximized self-consumption, and peak shaving capabilities. These features can use any of the loads in the house, including those on the main service panel. Backup power is also available with the addition of the Auto-transformer. Backup power is only available to the loads connected to the backup critical loads panel. Backup power capacity is 5 kW. Switchover upon a power outage can take up to 2 seconds. The StorEdge inverter is compatible with certified high voltage battery systems.
Like SolarEdge inverters, they are designed to work exclusively with SolarEdge power optimizers for use with solar modules. Both the optimizer strings and battery system operate at a nominal 400 VDC. The inverter and optimizers have ground fault and arc fault protection, and automatically limit the DC voltage to 1 VDC per module, and the battery is disabled when the inverter is not connected to the grid, improving installer and firefighter safety.
When used for export control, time-of-use shifting, self-consumption, or peak shaving capabilities, the SE Electricity Meter is needed and comes with CTs to be installed on the house AC lines. For backup power capability the SEAUTO-TX-5000 auto-transformer must be installed as well as a backup loads panel for the critical loads.
StorEdge inverters with model numbers ending in RNCB2 and RNCY2 have the ability to be wired with an external rapid shutdown initiation device if the inverter in mounted in a location not accessible to emergency personnel. For more information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
