Hybrid photovoltaic systems

Hybrid photovoltaic systems

For challenging conditions

Robust solutions and components for hybrid photovoltaic systems withstand even the most adverse environmental influences.

Along with supplying private households, hybrid photovoltaic systems are also used in the industrial environment, for example for sea water desalination, in mining, in agricultural operations, and for supplying energy to remote holiday resorts.

Hybrid photovoltaic systems are frequently installed under extreme climatic conditions. Therefore, along with the power generation units, the accumulator, and the inverter, the devices required for controlling and regulating these units must also be able to withstand the harsh ambient conditions. The solutions and components from Phoenix Contact meet these requirements ideally.

Your advantages

  • Enhanced efficiency of your hybrid photovoltaic system, thanks to the monitoring and acquisition of energy and performance data
  • Highly flexible, thanks to the modular expansion of the small-scale controllers and the wide range of functions of the I/O systems
  • Serial protocols for communicating with inverters

Measuring power

Power measurement terminal in the application  

All flows of energy are recorded with the power measurement terminal

The power measurement terminal for the proven Axioline system records all voltages, currents, and power generated by the hybrid photovoltaic systems.

This means that you can obtain industry-proven automation and energy measurement components from a single source. The power measurement terminal enables alternating current values to be analyzed. Instantaneous values can be recorded and then evaluated.

Load management

Small-scale controller in the application  

The small-scale controller enables efficient energy management

The small-scale controllers from Phoenix Contact can be used to control and monitor hybrid photovoltaic systems and to achieve efficient energy management.

If the load progression is known, the load management system can be developed based on models using Matlab Simulink and tested in the simulation environment. This allows the engineering effort to be reduced.

Providing control energy

Providing control energy  

Large battery storage systems for the compensation of voltage and load variations

Feeding in heavily fluctuating renewable energies puts power grids through increasingly severe load tests. Since limiting the maximum power output in photovoltaic systems is not economical, operating reserve buffers are used more and more frequently. Our modular control system assumes the central management function for providing control energy.

Data interfaces

I/O systems in the application  

Quick and easy data linking via I/O components

A wide range of I/O modules and various function terminals suitable for all applications are available.

For example, you can record analog and digital data with one panel each, which can be flexibly mounted on the controller.

Supplying energy, even in remote regions

To ensure the reliable operation of hybrid photovoltaic systems, all of the system components must be optimally coordinated. A Phoenix Contact small-scale controller can be used to control and regulate the entire application.

It works like an energy manager and ensures that the energy volumes required by the consumer are available at the right place and at the right time.

Autonomous energy supply  

Automation solutions are available at all times, even under extreme ambient conditions
