Princeton Power Systems Displays New Inverter at Solar Power International

Sept. 15, 2015
Princeton Power Systems will display its newest generation 100-kW grid tied inverter at Solar Power International 2015.

Princeton Power Systems will display its newest generation 100-kW grid tied inverter as well as its new 30-kW wall mount unit at this week’s Solar Power International (SPI) 2015 trade show in Anaheim, Calif.

The company’s GTIB-100 G1.2 is a three-phase 100-kW four-quadrant converter with the same advanced microgrid functions as its predecessor. It also features an expanded DC voltage, transformer-less operation, ten percent higher power, and reduced audible noise.

The inverter is designed for advanced batteries, solar, on-grid, and off-grid applications.

Princeton Power Systems has already deployed 60 MW worth of GTIB systems for its customers.The grid-tied inverters have been used in microgrids since 2009. It was the world’s first commercial-scale microgrid converter certified to UL-1741 safety standards.

Since 2010, multiple GTIB-100’s have been in operation at the solar microgrid at Alcatraz Island, one of the highest profile microgrids in North America.

The company’s new wall-mounted, optimized version of the GTIB-30 converter is fully microgrid and off-grid/back-up power capable for industrial and commercial facilities. The bi-directional converter can condition power from advanced batteries and solar. The product ships in early 2016 with UL 1741 listing for both on-grid and microgrid operations.

Princeton Power Systems will be exhibiting at SPI booth #2002 in the Anaheim Convention Center. Running Sept. 14-17,  SPI is the largest solar trade show in North America. More than 15,000 solar professionals attended last year’s SPI trade show.

Based in New Jersey, Princeton Power Systems designs and manufactures solutions for energy storage, microgrid operations, and electric vehicle charging, with customers and partners across North America, Europe, Africa and the Caribbean.
