Microinverter manufacturer Hoymiles is expanding its product offering in the United States. At RE+ 2023, the company debuted a range of single-phase hybrid inverters, HYS-LV-USG1, to address the increased demand for solar energy and energy storage in the U.S. market.
Hybrid solar systems involve the use of solar panels, batteries, and the main grid, as well as generators in some cases for added reliability. Hoymiles’ hybrid inverters enable the two-way conversion of electricity from ac to dc as well as dc to ac. This allows the HYS-LV-USG1 Series hybrid system to dynamically switch between power sources depending on energy production, price, and usage.
The inverters range from 3.8 kW to 11.5 kW and support both dc- and ac-coupled systems. The up-to-32A MPPT current provides seamless compatibility with all mainstream photovoltaic modules, and a 97.6% maximum efficiency.
The intelligent EMS function supports self-consumption mode, economic mode, and backup mode for diverse scenario applications.
“Our cutting-edge hybrid inverters seamlessly merge solar and grid power, bringing cost-effective and reliable energy within everyone’s reach. Especially in North America, a key market for us, these hybrid inverters aren’t just a product, they’re an instrument of energy independence and resilience amidst evolving challenges such as extreme weather,” says Neutron Wang, Hoymiles’ Product Director. “By acting as a medium between solar and grid energy, we ensure electricity is not just accessible but also adaptable and reliable. With our latest inverters, we are pushing the frontiers of solar technology, fostering energy autonomy, and shaping a future where everyone has access to clean, sustainable energy.”
The inverters also allow users to check real-time system data and perform remote O&M via a transfer stick (DTS).
- The series supports 120/240V backup power without an external autotransformer.
- DC/AC ratio of 1.5
- Integrated arc fault protection and rapid shutdown function for ultimate safety and reliability.
