The new Sinvert PVS585 and Sinvert PVS630 basic units supplement the previous range of rated powers with intermediate values. The expanded series now covers an output range from 500 up to 2520 kilowatts. This diversification results in maximum yield with optimum tuning to various MPP (maximum power point) windows.
Two new central inverters in the Sinvert PVS 600Series from the Siemens Industry Automation Division cover additional output ranges and result in a higher yield for photovoltaic power plants.
Compared to the Sinvert PVS500, the new Sinvert PVS585 features an increase in output power of around 17 percent. Sinvert central inverters deliver peak efficiencies of up to 98.7 percent, and a European efficiency of 98.4 percent. As a result of the extended output power ranges, owners can counteract reduced compensation for electricity fed into the grid and increase the overall profitability of their photovoltaic plants.
The new Siemens Sinvert PVS585 central inverters with output ranges of 585, 1170, 1755, and 2340 kilowatts represent an optimum balance between maximum power and a wide MPP window. The new Sinvert PVS 630 with rated powers of 630, 1260, 1890 and 2520 kilowatts is particularly suitable for achieving maximum yields from high-quality modules.
The Sinvert PVS portfolio also includes a control box for central control of the plant and regulation of the active and reactive power. The Fault Ride Through function increases plant availability. Expansion of the Sinvert PVS 600Series is also associated with extension of the reactive power data. In the future, it will be possible to compensate both reactive powers in finely meshed medium-voltage grids and voltage variations in extensive medium-voltage grids even better. Plant owners are thus superbly equipped for future grid requirements.
Just like all Sinvert PVS devices, the new central inverters are designed for high plant availability and efficient long-term operation. Up to four inverter subunits can be connected together according to the master/slave principle. Initial selection always favors the master which can operate at low solar radiation levels. As the insolation intensity increases, the next subunit is switched in as slave. Compared to the use of only a single unit, this system increases the efficiency of the central inverter when irradiation levels are low. The operating time is distributed uniformly between the various subunits, and this in turn increases the service life of the components.
Central inverters from Siemens have been assigned comprehensive certifications, and are suitable for use worldwide. In addition to the UL (Underwriters Laboratories), CSA (Canadian Standards Association), and IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) quality standards, they support both 50 Hertz and 60 Hertz line frequencies. All Siemens central inverters are available individually or as turnkey solution, installed in a container with all the necessary medium-voltage components. The inverter stations can be controlled using a graphics display in the front of the control cabinet or operated by remote control. Faults in individual sections of the photovoltaic field can be detected and eliminated early on.
Special dust or salt filters provide comprehensive protection for use in dry locations or those close to the sea. Globally available services and individually tailored servicing concepts round off the facilities available for the central inverters from Siemens.Please send inquiries with the reference "IA2613" to:

At the productronica trade fair in Munich this November, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be presenting Laser-Based Tape-Automated Bonding, LaserTAB for short. The experts from Aachen will be demonstrating how new battery cells and power electronics can be micro-welded more efficiently and precisely than ever before thanks to new optics and robot support.
Fraunhofer ILT from Aachen relies on a clever combination of robotics and a laser scanner with new optics as well as process monitoring, which it has developed...
Plants and algae use the enzyme Rubisco to fix carbon dioxide, removing it from the atmosphere and converting it into biomass. Algae have figured out a way to increase the efficiency of carbon fixation. They gather most of their Rubisco into a ball-shaped microcompartment called the pyrenoid, which they flood with a high local concentration of carbon dioxide. A team of scientists at Princeton University, the Carnegie Institution for Science, Stanford University and the Max Plank Institute of Biochemistry have unravelled the mysteries of how the pyrenoid is assembled. These insights can help to engineer crops that remove more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere while producing more food.

Our brains house extremely complex neuronal circuits, whose detailed structures are still largely unknown. This is especially true for the so-called cerebral cortex of mammals, where among other things vision, thoughts or spatial orientation are being computed. Here the rules by which nerve cells are connected to each other are only partly understood. A team of scientists around Moritz Helmstaedter at the Frankfiurt Max Planck Institute for Brain Research and Helene Schmidt (Humboldt University in Berlin) have now discovered a surprisingly precise nerve cell connectivity pattern in the part of the cerebral cortex that is responsible for orienting the individual animal or human in space.
The researchers report online in Nature (Schmidt et al., 2017. Axonal synapse sorting in medial entorhinal cortex, DOI: 10.1038/nature24005) that synapses in...

Using ultrafast flashes of laser and x-ray radiation, scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching, Germany) took snapshots of the briefest electron motion inside a solid material to date. The electron motion lasted only 750 billionths of the billionth of a second before it fainted, setting a new record of human capability to capture ultrafast processes inside solids!
When x-rays shine onto solid materials or large molecules, an electron is pushed away from its original place near the nucleus of the atom, leaving a hole...
