Schneider Electric Inverters Are A Significant Part Of The Overall Solar Power Conversion Chain Generating Highest CUF% In India

logo_schneiderThe Schneider Electric Solar Business, a global leader in solutions for the solar power conversion chain, is proud to announce that its Conext Core XC inverters are used in Solar Power Plants which have consistently generated the highest CUF% in India. This is corroborated by the performance data released by India’s Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) for solar photovoltaic (PV) plants in the nation for May and June 2013. In the month of May, 5 out of the top 12 power plants in India with the highest CUF% were using Schneider Electric Conext Core XC inverters while in June it was 7 out of 15 power plants.

The Conext Core XC Series is new to the Indian solar market, but within a very short span of time after plant commissioning the Conext Core XC inverters are enabling high ROI to developers and EPCs who trusted Schneider Electric’s design and manufacturing capabilities and its proven performance globally.

Elaborating on this achievement, Mr. Anurag Garg, Vice President – Solar Business, Schneider Electric, India said, “We are proud of the fact that our Conext Core XC inverters are being used by the plants which have the highest CUF%. This highlights their suitability for harsh & stringent climatic conditions that prevail in India, especially in areas where Solar Plants are located. Manufactured locally in India at our state of art global manufacturing facility, the XC range is based on proven and tested global technology and references. We would like to thank our customers for the trust and confidence that they have shown in our XC range of inverters and look forward to a long term relationship as their bankable partners.

Mr. Gagan Vermani, Executive Director & Chief Executive Officer, Sunborne Energy Technologies said, “We are very satisfied with the performance of our plant and we understand a very critical role was played by the inverters towards this performance. I hope Schneider Electric continues to provide value to this industry with continuous innovation and newer cost benchmarks.” Sunborne Energy Technologies has the XC range of inverters installed in their solar plant.

The Conext Core XC inverters have a best-in-class peak efficiency of 98.9% and include an innovative fast sweep MPPT algorithm (Maximum Power Point Tracking) to get better yields from power plants. The Conext Core XC Series have a field proven industrial design based on Schneider Electric industrial power drives and have been qualified for use in the harshest environmental conditions, like the Rajasthan desert area, through intensive Reliability Testing.a
