The launch of the fully in-house developed PowerMaster marks a milestone in the wide range of photovoltaic solutions and ess of the company for all scenarios. It can be viewed as a portfolio of 5 key game-changers that are industry firsts ess of utilities, capable of addressing key pain points by increasing energy yields at lower cost, secure and 24/7 operational.
Industry Leading Hybrid Cooling System
The innovative combination of air and liquid cooling system provides intelligent control that can reduce heat dissipation loss by about 30% and prevent condensation in the battery compartments, thus achieving efficient and constant cooling. Apart from this, the system comes with a lower battery temperature difference ≤2.5℃, capable of keeping battery cells within the optimal temperature range and helping to extend battery life by 14 %.
Maximum security proven
Maintaining strict security priorities, SOFAR PowerMaster is equipped with 3+2 security systems including triple FFS (Fire Suppression System), flammable gas emission, and explosion-proof design to prevent secondary combustion. Meanwhile, the built-in safety design effectively protects cells against short-circuit current or high voltage, ensuring stable operation throughout the day.
The modular design is highly adaptable and capable of expanding the storage capacity of a single chamber up to 3.93 MWh, which is ideal for flexible capacity expansion needs. Additionally, intelligent rack-level management increases system offload capacity by 7%. By virtue of the three-tier topology and a maximum conversion efficiency of 99%, the system maintains less losses and optimal energy performance.
Optimized costs with lower LCOS
The highly integrated design and refined management further improve energy yields and offer lower LCOS for inverters compared to traditional energy storage systems. Compatible with 320Ah cells, it minimizes the initial investment cost and allows a higher energy density. Therefore, SOFAR PowerMaster is expected to be one of the most prudent choices for energy storage in the utility sector.
To streamline the management process, SOFAR PowerMaster adopts real-time automatic coordination control which ensures PCS runs at full power. In addition, intelligent control algorithms make flexible and adjustable system capacity possible.
YufengVice President of SOFAR, points out that SOFAR PowerMaster is expected to inspire a technological revolution in the sector of ess of public services, for being completely self-developed on the base of ten years’ accumulation of R&D strength. “As a leading player in the global energy storage market, SOFAR has been recognized by customers around the world. In addition, in collaboration with TÜV Rheinland, we have embarked on the development of the white paper on ess of public services. We are excited about what is to come as we focus on delivering advanced technological advances to build a more sustainable society for all,” he added.
SOFAR is a leading global provider of solar PV and energy storage solutions and is committed to being the leader of digital energy solutions with a comprehensive portfolio, including PV inverters, hybrid inverters, battery storage system, energy storage central and smart energy management solutions for residential, C&I and utility scale applications. By 2021, SOFAR entered the TOP5 Global Hybrid Inverter Suppliers, established a global R&D network with three R&D centers and two manufacturing bases. In 2022, SOFAR’s annual production capacity reached 10 GW for photovoltaic and storage inverters and 1 GWh for batteries. By 2022, SOFAR has shipped more than 18 GW of inverters to more than 100 countries and regions around the world.
