New reactive power inverter (not only) for PV systems

In order to support grid stability, German PV specialist KACO new energy introduces the blueplanet 50.0 TL3 RPonly. This unit can feed in reactive power at any time in order to maintain the grid voltage in the specified tolerance range – a key contribution to grid management. To date, no other manufacturer is taking this approach using a stand-alone reactive-power inverter, which can reduce the load on the solar inverters and prevent yield losses in the solar power plant.
