SMA AC Coupled Solution
SMA is a top-quality product designed in Germany and offers a standard 5-year warranty. The warranty can be extended to 15, 20 or 25 years.
The Flexible Storage System (FSS) is an ‘Smart Home’ solution offering advanced energy management options and the Home Manager (part of the FSS) is capable of remotely controlling devices and wall plugs to optimise energy management.
The FSS is a bi-directional AC-Coupled solution which can be used for on-grid (Grid Interactive) solutions with- or without Battery Backup and with- or without Seasonal Self Consumption optimisation.
The FSS manages the energy harvest from solar panels, charging a battery from solar- or Eskom power and inverts DC power from solar panels and/or a battery to supply connected AC loads.
The Sunny Island 8.0H inverter is rated at 6kW AC power, but can power a load of 8/9.1/11 kW for 30min/5min/3sec respectively. Coupled with an SMA SunnyBoy it can accommodate up to 12kWp of solar power.
The Sunny Island 6.0H inverter is rated at 4.6kW AC power, but can power a load of 6/6.8/11 kW for 30min/5min/3sec respectively. Coupled with an SMA SunnyBoy it can accommodate up to 9.2kWp of solar power.
The smaller Sunny Island 4.4M rated at 3.3kW is also available, but can power a load of 4.4/4.6/5.5 kW for 30min/5min/3sec respectively. Coupled with an SMA SunnyBoy it can accommodate up to 4.6kWp of solar power.
Components can be paralleled with additional units to deploy a 3-phase solution.
Only when the Grid utility power is off, is the output power limited to the capacity of the inverter and is it necessary to use high power demand Items (kettle, microwave, hair dryer etc) with consideration.
