Advanced Solar Photonics, an American manufacturer of photovoltaic equipment, has announced the launched of its American Private Power Plant (AP3), a turnkey PV solar power generation system.
AP3 is a distributed generation system that produces electricity at the point of consumption, minimizing line losses and maximizing energy efficiency, the company says. The AP3 is modular and scalable. By combining individual modules, systems can be created for applications from 25 kW to 1 MW. Each system comes with photovoltaic modules, inverters, electrical components and support structures.
Distributed Energy Generation (DEG), also called on-site generation, produces power at the point of consumption. As a revolution in electricity supply, DEG may one day replace the current centralized generation model, where electricity is produced in large centralized facilities with coal, oil, gas and nuclear fired power plants. Features of the American Private Power Plant system include:
- Power Generation
- DC Energy Collection
- DC to AC Conversion
- Energy Storage
- AC Collection
- Grid Interconnect
- Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition
