LV5/LV5+ eHouse Solutions
Leading inverter technology to drive cost-effective solar PV utility-scale infrastructure
GE was the first company to introduce breakthrough 1.5kV central inverter technology into the market, the 1st to introduce Silicon Carbide in solar inverters reaching 99% EU efficiency. As the industry continues to strive towards further lowering levelized cost of electricity in Solar PV across the globe, with its LV5 product family, GE is offering a range of central solar inverters and system solutions accommodating your specific project needs.
Having shipped more than 4.2GW of solar inverters, our LV5 builds on proven silicon power electronics technology, demonstrated global manufacturing experience and an extensive global installed base.
Reducing OPEX through novel power station design
GE's LV5+ Solar eHouse Solution enables significant OPEX savings over lifetime with air-filterless design and main transformer sleep feature. Using an innovative design, the LV5+ Solar eHouse controls the pre- and demagnetization of the main transformer to safely connect & disconnect it every day to eliminate no-load losses during the night. The robust air cooling system with air-to-air heat exchangers, instead of filters, requires lower maintenance.
Compact power station designed to maximize lifetime value
Power transformers connected to the grid at night consume “no-load” power. These power losses add up over the lifetime of the PV plant. GE developed a technology to eliminate no-load nighttime transformer losses automatically. The novel power station design can help to reduce lifetime OPEX losses. Our pre-fabricated and pre-tested design allows for plug & play solutions and the standard 20ft container facilitates shipping logistics.
