1. SCOPE OF THIS MANUAL
Elettronica Santerno is committed to update its User Manuals available for download from santerno.com with
the latest software version officially released. Please contact Elettronica Santerno if you require technical
documents related to previous software versions.
2. GENERAL INFORMATION
2.1.
Description of the Product
The inverters of the SUNWAY M XS series are full-digital devices that convert DC energy produced by
photovoltaic (PV) panels – when radiated by sunlight – into AC energy, which is delivered to the grid.
A solar system for the self-generation of electric power is composed of two elements:
•
The PV generator, consisting of a set of PV panels.
•
The SUNWAY M XS inverter, delivering power supply from the PV generator to the grid.
Operation in parallel to the grid allows consumers to exploit the power supply produced directly by the
system when radiated by sunlight, and to deliver power which is not locally consumed to the grid, by
conferring it to the Grid Administrator. Therefore, residual power can be used by other consumers connected
to the grid, thus allowing the exploitation of the green energy produced by the PV generator, as well as the
constant operation of the same PV generator at its max ratings for optimum performance.
At night-time or when sunlight is weak, consumers can exploit the grid to power their loads.
All the parameter values related to the operation of the equipment may be easily programmed through the
touchscreen display and the parameter menus and submenus.
The inverters of the SUNWAY M XS series have been designed and manufactured in compliance with the
requirements of the “Low Voltage Directive” and the “Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive” and comply
with the prescriptions for grid connection applying to self-generation electric plants.
2.2.

SUNWAY M XS 3000TL
Operating Principle
The power conversion system (inverter) is connected directly to the PV field. By using an IGBT bridge
associated with a high-frequency voltage booster, the DC current coming from the PV field is converted into
AC at the grid frequency. The transformerless architecture ensures maximum efficiency without affecting
safety: the residual current device (RCD) is integrated into the inverter and the redundant grid connecting
devices ensure proper safety even in the event of single fault.
The EMC filters for the suppression of electromagnetic disturbance, the isolation sensor monitoring the
isolation to earth of the PV panels as well as the device controlling the operation in parallel to the grid are
integrated into the inverter. Therefore, no additional device external to the inverter is required.
Not fitted in the Sunway MXS 2200 TL

Main Standard Integrated Functions
This section contains a brief description of the equipment functions, to allow users who are not familiar with
the operation of PV fields to better understand this manual.
Device for constant isolation control: this is a device which checks the isolation between the earth and
the polarities of the PV field and the earth before the inverter is connected in parallel to the grid. This function
is obtained by measuring the isolation resistance: the equipment is factory-set to detect isolation loss when
the isolation resistance between polarity + or polarity – and the earth drops below 850 kΩ.
MPPT (Maximum Power Point Tracking): A sophisticated computing performed by the microprocessor
allows the inverter to detect the optimum operation point of the PV field, corresponding to the maximum
power that can be produced by the PV field depending on current solar radiation conditions.

SUNWAY M XS 3000TL
INSTALLATION AND
PROGRAMMING INSTRUCTIONS
Automatic Disconnecting Means: This device automatically disconnects the self-generation plant from the
grid when parallel operation is no longer possible. This typically occurs when the grid “opens” due to
maintenance needs or to safety circuit tripping. This function allows the inverter to instantly disconnect from
the grid, thus avoiding unwanted stand-alone operation of the plant and electric shock hazards for the
operators working on the grid. Trip times and levels are factory-set according to the applicable safety
standards. To modify the factory settings, please refer to the sections relating to the inverter programming.
The ratings of this safety function have been certified as prescribed by the Grid Administrator.
When required by the Grid Administrator, a simple self-test procedure performed via the touchscreen display
allows checking the efficiency of the grid disconnection device.

NOTE
The maximum peak power of the PV generator should not exceed the value
given in the table. Exceeding values do not entail malfunctions to the
inverter, as the equipment automatically limits the power fed into the grid.
However, in this way the PV generator is not exploited at its best.
The voltage at the maximum power point of the PV generator, under the
intended conditions of operation (min/max radiation, min/max temperature
of the modules) must be within the MPPT voltage of the inverter (125480V).
The maximum rated voltage of the PV field must never be exceeded. A
higher voltage will damage the equipment in an irreversible manner.
DANGER
When testing the photovoltaic field, do not exceed 500 V for the
isolation test in order not to damage the integrated varistors protecting the
DC input of the inverter.

3.7.1.2. AD HOC Connection
The AD HOC connection enables connecting a PC to a different device allowing using one of the consulting
methods in section 4 for one or more inverters, with no need to exploit an existing wireless network.
When using the AD HOC connection, unencrypted data is transmitted
from/to the inverter.
NOTE
When an AD HOC connection is established, the Wi-Fi status icon is green
or yellow during data transmit/receive. The red Wi-Fi icon may therefore
indicate that a connection is correctly established but no data exchange is
occurring.
Do the following in order to establish an AD HOC connection with the inverter:
−
−
Set “AD HOC” as the type of connection (L305);
By activating the “AD HOC” connection, the inverter will create a network supporting the connection
of an external device (e.g. iPhone), identified with the “Santerno_MXS” SSID. In multi-inverter plants,
the inverters will automatically assign themselves unique IP addresses within the same
“Santerno_MXS” network.

The programming parameters of the inverter are divided into groups based
on user access levels, depending on the complexity of their function.
Therefore, based on the user level programmed in the touchscreen
display, the user is allowed to view only some menus or certain parts of
them.
By setting the BASIC user level, once the inverter is properly
parameterized, navigation is easier, since the user is shown a shorter set
of parameters including only the most frequently used parameters.
The preset user level is stated in the “Level” field.

When a safety device or an alarm trips, the inverter STOPS; the connection to the electric grid of the output
power and the current delivery are inhibited.
When an alarm message is displayed, find the cause responsible for the
alarm before restarting the equipment.
CAUTION
When a protection or an alarm trips, the inverter operation is disabled.
Carefully read the following sections before operating on the inverter.
NOTE
The alarms that are automatically reset do not let the inverter quit the run
mode. Consequently, once the cause responsible for the alarm is reset,
alarms are automatically reset and the inverter will run without having to
press the START button.
The alarm condition is displayed on the touchscreen display of the inverter through a pop up window similar
to the screen shown in Figure 78.
Figure 78: Example of an alarm screen
When an alarm trips, the inverter stores to the “ALARM HISTORY” the instant when the alarm is triggered
(supply time and operation time), the inverter status and the value of the most important measures (see
Table 23) sampled when the alarm has tripped. Reading and storing those data items may help find the
triggering cause and reset the alarm. The alarm history keeps track of the last 6 alarms tripped. The section
below describes the alarm conditions that can occur.

Serial Communications
5.1.1.
General
The SUNWAY M XS 2200, 3000 and 3800 inverters may be connected to a PC via serial link. This allows
reading and writing all the parameters normally managed through the touchscreen display as well as the
acquisition of the data processed by the inverter.
The 3-wire RS485 standard is used, which ensures better immunity to disturbance even on long cable paths,
thus limiting communication errors.
The inverter behaves as a slave device (i.e. it can only respond to queries sent by another device); a master
device (the PC or a Data Logger board) is then needed to implement serial communications.
It is possible to connect only SUNWAY M XS directly to one PC (or equivalent device).
5.1.2.
Direct Linking
If a direct linking configuration is chosen, the electrical standard RS485 may be used provided that the PC is
equipped with a RS485 port. If the PC is equipped only with a serial RS232-C port or a USB port, as it
typically is, a RS232-C/RS485 converter or a USB/RS485 converter is required.
Logic ‘1’ (usually called a ‘MARK’) means that terminal TX/RX A is positive in respect to terminal TX/RX B
(vice-versa for logic ‘0’, usually called a ‘SPACE’).
5.1.3.
Connection
The 9-pole, male D connector located beneath the front cover of the inverter is required. If a female
connector is mounted on the inverter, use the gender changer supplied.
The pins-signals matching is given in the table below.

The Modbus-IDA association (http://www.modbus.org) defines the type of connection for Modbus
communications over serial link RS485, which is used by the inverter, as a ‘2-wire cable’ configuration. The
following specifications are recommended for the cable:

Communications Protocol
The implemented serial communications protocol is the Modbus RTU standard.
The inverter parameters are queried at the same time as they are read from the touchscreen display, so that
both devices can be used at a time. Parameter modification is also managed along with the touchscreen
display. Note that the inverter will always consider as valid the latest value set either via serial link or through
the touchscreen display.
Because the inverter is controlled by two microprocessors, it will be considered by the master as if it were
two devices, one with address 1 (section A) and one with address 2 (section B).

Grid Interface Protection Autotest
The Grid Interface Protection Autotest enables checking the operation of the grid disconnecting device
(Interface Protection) as required by the National Grid Administrator.
The following tests may be carried out:
-
test for the minimum voltage protection trip;
-
test for the maximum voltage protection trip;
-
test for the minimum frequency protection trip;
-
test for the maximum frequency protection trip.
During the test, the inverter automatically varies the trip threshold of the variable to be tested until the
protection trips, thus allowing checking if the integrated relay connecting the inverter to the grid opens. When
this happens, the inverter stops, the interface contactor opens and the threshold value is fixed to the trip
value. At the same time, the trip time of the protection is displayed.
After few seconds, the normal operation of the inverter is automatically resumed and the default values are
reset.
The inverter decoupling events are stored to the Event History.
The inverter is to be producing energy (parameters FIELD OK = 1, GRID OK = 1 and RUN = 1 on the

press the Run Command (
) button to enable the test: the trip value starts
varying until it matches with the measured value (see Figure 85);
•
if the test succeeds, the inverter temporarily disconnects from the grid and the test window
shows the value of the trip threshold causing the inverter to stop and the time when the
protection has tripped;
•
if the test fails, the inverter does not stop. This means that the interface protection has tripped.

Maintenance
The degree of protection IP65 limits scheduled maintenance only to the external parts of the product.
Every two years, clean the external fans and the rear heatsink with compressed air to remove dust. The
frequency of scheduled maintenance may need to be increased depending on the installation conditions. It
is to be increased if the inverter is installed outdoor or in a dusty environment.
It is recommended that the inverter operation be periodically checked using the diagnostic means made
available from the touchscreen display. It is advisable to read the alarm history and to perform the autotest
procedure.

Power Limiting
The Sunway M XS inverters may limit their output power based on 3 factors:
o
Internal temperature
The power limiting associated with the internal temperature decreases the power output by 20%
every °C over 75 °C. This means that the output power is zero when the internal temperature
reaches 80 °C.

Field voltage
When the field voltage is out of the allowable range from 160V (185V for 2200) to 480V, the inverter
limits its output power due to the achievement of the maximum field current or to an exceedingly high
input voltage.
