Surge Protection for the Renewables Industry

The renewable energy industry is made up from many different kinds of sources, from primarily using sun for solar (photovoltaic) energy, wind (wind turbines) and water (hydro electrical plants).

These facilities are all used today to convert these natural free energy sources into electricity for our consumption, and provide the exact same product as the fossil fuel industry but without all the dirty emissions that are dispersed into the atmosphere which affects the air we breathe and the environment we live in.

Unfortunately it is far more expensive to produce power from using these FREE renewable energy sources than the burning of fossil fuels. The reasons behind all of this is the shear cost based on the equipment that is necessary to harness natural sources and convert them to electricity and the maintenance or replacement of this equipment.

The main and overall problem with regards to reducing any of the costs within the renewable sectors is the same thing we are using in the first place ….nature.

The damage that lightning strikes can cause to windfarms, solar panels, hydro plants and all the equipment used within them that are connected is very costly. This cost can be prevented by the implementation of our surge protection devices (SPDs).

T2, DC Surge arrester for PV

This series of products are type 2 lightning & surge arresters according to EN 61643-11 and IEC 61643-11. This arrester is recommended for use in the Lightning Protection Zones Concept at the boundaries of LPZ 1-2 (according to IEC EN 62305) for equipotential bonding of positive and negative busbars of photovoltaic systems and the elimination of transient overvoltages that originates during the atmospheric discharges or switching processes. The MOV modules, connected between the terminals L+, L- and PE, are equipped with internal disconnectors. The unit has a Status Indicator which turns red when replacement is required.

T1/2, DC Lightning and surge arrester for LPL I and II

11, IEC 61643-11 and UTE C 61-740-51. They are recommended for use in the Lightning Protection Zones Concept at the boundaries of LPZ 0-2 (according to IEC EN 62305) for equipotential bonding of positive and negative busbars of photovoltaic systems and elimination of transient overvoltages originating from atmospheric discharges or switching processes. The varistor modules are connected between L+, L- and PE conductors and are equipped with internal disconnectors. Operational status indication of these disconnectors is both visual (the indication window changes to Red) and remote (by potential free, change
over contacts).
