ABB has been a leading player in the solar power industry since the beginning of 1990 when we developed an automation platform for the world’s first test centre for concentrated solar energy, Plataforma Solar de Almería (PSA). Since then, we have been involved in the development of solar energy technology. This has given us a unique competence in how we best control and store solar energy as well as effectively convert it into reliable electricity – ready for transmission on the grid. ABB’s portfolio of products, systems and solutions for the solar power industry is extensive. It varies from turnkey solar power plants to complete solutions for power and automation technology for commercial, industrial and residential applications. ABB now complements portfolio of solar cell products with ABB’s highly efficient 3-phase inverters, with power from 5.8 up to 175kW on the AC side. The inverters are perfect for solar systems – from villas to commercial real estate and solar parks.
