It can operate grid connected as well as stand-alone, creating a local micro-grid. With its 19” form factor and galvanic isolation, multiple Airdra25s can be easily paralleled, interfacing fuel-cells up to 1MW. The module offers high efficiency (up to 98%) and is air cooled with a low noise speed-controlled fan tray. The module complies with the latest international Grid codes (E.g. RfG, IEEE1547) and can be accessed via a standardized Sunspec Modbus Ethernet interface.
The Airdra25 is a universal power converter which can be used to interface with different type of fuel cells including regenerative ones. Due to its bi-directional capabilities it can also be used to connect batteries or electrolysis stacks to the grid. The Airdra25 can operate grid connected as well as in stand-alone configuration. As it complies with the latest grid code standards, it is fully prepared for the future grid with a high penetration of renewable energy sources. Its galvanic isolation offers the possibility of flexible grounding and easy paralleling, up to 1MW.
The SunSpec Modubus ethernet interface, facilitates control and monitoring of the Airdra25. A separated Master/Slave interface is available to guarantee even power distribution and stable operation for almost unlimited paralleling of modules.
The Airdra25 module is designed as fully PCB-based and almost completely produced on automated production lines with in-line automated quality control and tests, therefore eliminating the risk of human error. The unit is fully SiC based, resulting in high efficiency and low thermal stress over lifetime. The fans are speed controlled, increasing bearing lifetime. If necessary the fan-tray can be replaced separately.
