Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation introduced advanced utility-scale inverter technology in its new Series 6001 energy storage grid-connect inverter, engineered to provide improved power stability for wind and solar energy customers. The Series 6001 features proprietary electronics that make it one of the most efficient inverters in the renewable power market.
“With the recent IE Power acquisition, Eaton is now combining strong design capabilities with an established product platform to deliver dependable and efficient inverters for utility-scale customers,” Chris Thompson, business unit manager at Eaton. “As a result, Eaton’s reliable energy storage power conversion solutions provide customers with flexible energy management for more reliable and efficient power.”
The Series 6001 provides high-performance conversion in utility applications for wind, solar and other heavy industrial power applications by creating a high-performance link between the power source and battery. The Series 6001 helps utilities reduce downtime and clear faults faster by staying on line during fault conditions. True low-voltage ride through (LVRT) with proprietary algorithms enables the Series 6001 inverter to run near zero line voltage for extendedperiods, while maintaining line synchronization. Additionally, high-voltageride through (HVRT) capability is achieved through conservatively rated components.
Eaton ride through capabilities meet the requirements of North American and European standards: Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), Bundesverband der Energie und Wasserwirtschaft (BDEW), and E-ION. These standard compliance settings are field selectable to match site requirements.
