Hybrid installation at a school in Chennai, India

We recently commissioned a hybrid system for a school in Chennai. The aim of this projects was to supply clean energy for the classrooms during its day time operation.

The entire system was designed based on battery based back up because there was lot of power cuts at the site and the site did not have net meter installed. Therefore on-grid system was never a suitable option for their requirements. The hybrid equipment was supplied by Zigor which interacts with the grid to take power from Utility when the battery voltage is down and support the load. The inverter also charges the battery based on the settings done on the unit, some customer prefer not to have grid charging mode.

I feel that the overall Indian market is now much mature and customer tend to look into more quality compared to the earlier phases where they were more concerned on the prices. This is good news for the market and also international manufacturers who plan to invest into the solar PV segment in India. The demand for hybrid products based on energy security is the next big thing and also the rooftop segment has huge potential for the Indian market. Also considering the fact that solar power is becoming cheaper day by day and also based on the tariff increase in the domestic segments.

Solar hybrid inverters for motor based applications

Indian market has various challenges and different applications requirements for Solar PV based projects. We recently supplied our Zigor hybrid inverter for a manufacturer in Chennai, who have recently ventured into solar PV based application projects. The aim was to build a mobile RO water purification system for remote regions, please find the pictures below.

The hybrid inverter can handle surge current up to 200% of its rated capacity and this made it suitable for this application where pumps and hydraulic systems are used. We successfully commissioned our inverter and the inverters were able to handle the load quite easily.
