Dynapower Ships First Storage Inverter System Under

Intertek’s Satellite Data Acceptance Program

 

 

South Burlington, Vermont – March 18, 2015 – Dynapower Company, the global leader in energy storage inverters, announced that it has shipped its first inverter to be ETL-certified under Intertek’s SATELLITETM test-data-acceptance program. Dynapower is the only energy storage inverter manufacturer to receive ETL certification through Intertek’s SATELLITETM program.

 

The first inverter to be certified under this program is a Dynapower IPS-500, a 500 kW model. It is being installed as part of an integrated solar power-plus-storage system that will generate revenue in the PJM grid territory through a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) and participation in the frequency regulation market.

 

Intertek’s SATELLITETM test-data-acceptance program adds speed, flexibility, and cost effectiveness to the product development process by accepting Dynapower’s internal laboratory testing data. Dynapower’s laboratory and quality system has met the strict standards of the program, enabling the company to streamline performance testing of its market-leading energy storage inverters as part of the product development process.

 

As an accredited SATELLITETM member, Dynapower can conduct compliance testing at its in-house testing facility in South Burlington, Vermont, and submit the resulting data to Intertek in pursuit of ETL certification. The ETL Mark is proof of product compliance to North American safety standards (including UL 1741 and IEEE 1547), and is the fastest growing safety certification in North America.

 

“Dynapower inverters are recognized for their high quality and performance, and we are proud to partner with Intertek, a global industry authority that shares our commitment to product excellence,” said Adam Knudsen, Dynapower President. “By joining the SATELLITETM program, we will improve efficiencies in testing of off-the shelf and custom-engineered products, accelerating time to market and customer deliveries.”

 

“Both Intertek and Dynapower are dedicated to providing quality performance to the energy sector,” said Nimer Al-Hafi, President of the Products business unit at Intertek. “We congratulate Dynapower on the successful completion of their first project with the SATELLITETM program, and look forward to working with them in the future.”

Dynapower Installs Mps-100 Inverter For Micro-Grid Showcase

At Black & Veatch World Headquarters

 

 

           

 

 

South Burlington, Vermont – March 3, 2015 – Dynapower Company, the global leader in energy storage inverters, announced that it has completed installation of its market-leading MPS-100 inverter as part of an integrated micro-grid system at Black & Veatch’s World Headquarters in Overland Park, Kansas. The renewable-energy-plus-storage micro-grid consists of 50 kilowatts (kW) of rooftop solar panels, two 65 kW natural gas micro-turbines, and a 100 kWh battery connected to the Dynapower MPS-100 kW energy storage inverter.

 

The system is designed for “behind-the-meter” (customer-sited) use, including both grid-connected and standalone operation (islanding) of a portion of the facility. The system also includes a self-guided computer touch screen in the World Headquarters that highlights the micro-grid’s real-time performance for demonstration and educational purposes.

 

“Black & Veatch is a leading global engineering, procurement and construction company, with a strong track record in energy storage project development,” said Adam Knudsen, Dynapower President. “We’re pleased that they selected Dynapower’s MPS-100 energy storage inverter to be an integral part of this innovative headquarters micro-grid.”

 

Said Tom Phillips, Vice President and Director of Renewable Energy for Black & Veatch, “Dynapower’s expertise in inverter technology is an important element in our micro-grid system. Also, combined with Black & Veatch’s engineering and construction capabilities, our strategic alliance with Dynapower is offering clients a wide range of transmission and distribution-level energy storage solutions.”  

 

About the MPS-100 Series

Dynapower’s MPS-100 series of bi-directional inverters are the most technically advanced 100 kW energy storage inverters available for grid-tied and micro-grid applications. The MPS-100 can function as a single- or dual-DC input inverter, with each input configurable for either battery-based or photovoltaic (PV) operation. The MPS-100 is an integrated solution containing all required AC breakers and protective features, as well as DC disconnects and fuses. It offers end users and energy storage integrators a cost advantage when compared to non-integrated systems requiring additional add-on items.
