PHOTOVOLTAIC INVERTER WITH INTEGRATED ENERGY STORAGE ABB’s residential energy storage system REACT (Renewable Energy Accumulator and Conversion Technology) allows home owners and landlords to store any excess energy produced by their PV installation during peak times for periods with higher energy demands. The solution consists of a 4.6 kW or 3.6 kW, respectively, single-phase ABB inverter and a lithium-ion battery providing 2 kWh of usable energy. Due to its dual MPPTs, broad input voltage ranges and high efficiencies, the integrated inverter offers maximum installation flexibility for optimal energy harvesting. The energy storage system has been designed for a long life cycle with a 10-year expected life of the battery. The solution can also be expanded by additional battery modules to up to 6 kWh of usage energy. Due to the integrated Ethernet port, the energy storage system allows for remote or local monitoring without requiring any additional interfaces. Highlights include: the REACT-3.6/4.6-TL (Renewable Energy Accumulator and Conversion Technology) is a PV single-phase grid connected inverter able to store energy in a 2.0 kWh useful capacity Li-Ion battery integrated within the same product enclosure, expandable up to 3 x; all features found in the family of string inverters are maintained, including double fast MPPT, broad input voltage range, top class efficiency with TL topology, compactness and installation flexibility; and up to four onboard load management outputs are included as well as an auxiliary AC back-up output for off-grid capability in case of a blackout.
