eBoP solutions by Siemens: Photovoltaic electrical Balance of Plant

Photovoltaic electrical Balance of Plant

Smart integration of Photovoltaic power generation into the grid. Use of renewable energy sources is growing at a tremendous pace, a development that is presenting grids with new challenges. These include maintaining reliable stability at all times despite fluctuating levels of decentrally generated energy being fed into the grid. The answer to this challenge is intelligent infrastructure and energy storage solutions – like the Photovoltaic eBoP solution from Siemens. It includes all necessary electrotechnical equipment for photovoltaic systems and even complete microgrids, along with comprehensive offerings for complete end-to-end planning, engineering, and financing, all the way to commissioning and service.

The intelligent solution from a single source

Photovoltaic eBoP is the right answer for the challenges of the future: a complete package of proven components, modern systems, and comprehensive service offerings. This total package comprises an end-to-end power distribution solution – from the combiner box right through to the medium- or high-voltage grid connection. With end-to-end consistency and convenience from a single source. 

The Photovoltaic skid: a future-proof converter station and centerpiece of the Photovoltaic eBoP solution

The PV skid is a convenient “plug-and-play” solution with maximum power density for particularly large photovoltaic systems. It’s a definite highlight, combining three high-performance components from the Siemens portfolio: the inverter, transformer, and switchgear work together perfectly here. That makes the PV skid a practical, time- and cost-saving solution for future-proof power distribution.
