AC Coupling with Magnum Energy

AC Coupling adds battery backup power to an


existing grid tie installation allowing the use of the
renewable energy source during a utility outage to
power the essential loads and charge the batteries.
Our goal is to provide an efficient AC coupled
system inexpensively and without changing the
existing system. --Predeep Jaltota, Sr. Engineer

Advantages of AC Coupling in existing grid
tie systems

Higher efficiency during sell back mode (>95%)


Higher string voltages (no changes to array)
Install into existing installation (no rewiring)
Use most brands of string or micro inverters
Does not waste RE source during a utility outage
Adds battery backup to grid tie system effectively
Lower cost than separate systems

Considerations when designing our AC
Coupling systems today

Battery based inverter should be 10% larger


than grid tie inverter
Some brands of GT inverters are sensitive and
disconnect from battery inverter
DC Diversion Load must be used to control
battery charging, or use a solid state voltage
relay to disconnect the PV source.
Frequency shift is used as a backup to DC
Diversion Load (failsafe feature, not primary
method) Company Confidential The Powerful Difference
How does Frequency Shift work?

IEEE Standards require tight grid frequency and


voltage tolerances in order to connect to the grid
Frequency Shift is a fail safe gap feature that
changes the output frequency of the inverter
from 60 Hz to 60.6Hz and should not be used as
the main protection for battery over-charging
Frequency Shift is enabled when battery type is
set to Custom and occurs at +1 VDC for 12v
models, +2 VDC for 24v models and + 4v for 48v
models, above the absorption voltage setting
