Power Systems & Controls is working with Parker-Hannifin Corporation
in developing Grid Tie Inverter Enclosures and Lithium-ion Battery Containers to support solar operations world-wide. Both PS&C's Engineering
and Container Manufacturing
groups will be supporting the project. The inverter enclosure and lithium-ion battery containers will be housing their unique power systems, which will provide 20MW of power from solar fields. Mitsubishi is providing the lithium-ion battery systems.
Solar power is the conversion of sunlight into electricity, either directly using photovoltaics (PV), or indirectly using concentrated solar power (CSP). Concentrated solar power systems use lenses or mirrors and tracking systems to focus a large area of sunlight into a small beam. Photovoltaics convert light into electric current using the photovoltaic effect.
Photovoltaics are an important and relatively inexpensive source of electrical energy where grid power is inconvenient, unreasonably expensive to connect, or simply unavailable. However, as the cost of solar electricity is falling, solar power is also increasingly being used even in grid-connected situations as a way to feed low-carbon energy into the grid. We are excited to be supporting Parker and Mitsubishi on this project and look forward to what our partners have in store for the future. Learn more about Who We Are !
