DC optimizer company Ampt announced that its products have been integrated into the Energy Storage modeling software solution from Fractal, an energy storage and renewable energy consulting and engineering firm. Users of the Fractal Model software can now model their solar + storage projects including Ampt String Optimizers to design lower cost and higher performing systems.
Fractal’s energy storage software solution — the Fractal Model — is used globally by electric utilities, IPPs, developers, EPCs and integrators to perform battery storage sizing, dispatch and financial analysis. The software consists of a technoeconomic modeling platform used during project design and development, due diligence and RFP evaluation to provide investment-grade performance and cost analysis and simulations. Following today’s announcement, users of Fractal software are now able to model systems with Ampt String Optimizers.
Ampt String Optimizers are DC/DC converters that improve system performance and lower the cost of PV power plants and DC-coupled energy storage systems. Ampt’s innovative technology is used in a variety of PV solar applications with products ranging in power up to 70 kW that are used in system voltages up to 1,500 VDC.
“Fractal is committed to providing its customers with access to the most comprehensive modeling capabilities,” said Judy McElroy, CEO of Fractal Energy Storage Consultants. “We are pleased to include Ampt products in our software to expand the options available to our users when optimizing their PV and energy storage systems.”
