Overview: Integrated PV Inverter

The Solectria Renewables PVI 10 KW, PVI 13KW and PVI 15KW are rugged, DSP-controlled PV inverters for grid connected commercial, industrial and utility 3-phase PV systems. The core of the inverter, Solectria Renewables' proven DMGI 245 distributed generation inverter, uses state of the art control techniques and devices including space vector PWM, a precision MPT algorithm, and low-loss trench-gate IGBTs. With inverter power electronics efficiency up to 97% (95.8% including the transformer) and fully integrated packaging, the PVI 13KW and PVI 15KW set a new industry standard for efficiency, ease of installation and reliability. 


  • 10-15kW; 60Hz;  208, 240, 480, or 600 VAC; 3-phase, grid-tied commercial PV systems (up to 15-18kW DC-STC).
  • Multiple inverters can be used together for 20-30kW, 30-45kW, 40-60kW (AC) or larger PV systems. Ideal for 20-35kW, 36-54kW, 48-72kW DC STC arrays.
  • Designed for mounting as desired, indoor/outdoor, driving rain and drifting snow: rooftop/groundwall. Versions for other renewable and distributed generation applications available.
