SINVERT PVS 600Series central inverters
Features and advantages at a glance
Transformerless, 3-phase SINVERT PVS inverters are
reliable, grid-compatible and cost-effective photovoltaic
inverters which are used to convert solar energy into
grid-compliant AC voltage for feeding into conventional
power grids – thereby achieving peak efficiency levels of
up to 98.7%.
Photovoltaic plants in which SINVERT PVS inverters are used
can be monitored and controlled with the WinCC visualization
system installed on a Windows PC. WinCC gives transparency
to the status and energy flow of the entire plant, from the
photovoltaic array and the inverters right up to the grid
connection (see page 21).
The compact SINVERT PVS inverters are ideal for use in
medium and large-scale photovoltaic power plants.
The free SINVERT WebMonitor web application can also be
used for monitoring the photovoltaic plant with SINVERT PVS
inverters (see page 22).
The SINVERT PVS500, SINVERT PVS585, SINVERT PVS600 and
SINVERT PVS630 inverters are grouped together under the
name "SINVERT PVS 600Series".
They consist of between 1 and 4 subunits and are available for
outputs of between 500 and 2 520 kW in the following power
levels:
– SINVERT PVS500:
500, 1 000, 1 500, 2 000 kW
– SINVERT PVS585:
585, 1 170, 1 755, 2 340 kW
– SINVERT PVS600:
600, 1 200, 1 800, 2 400 kW
– SINVERT PVS630:
630, 1 260, 1 890, 2 520 kW
The IEC-compliant devices are also available already integrated
in an inverter station (with two to four subunits), including
medium-voltage components. Besides SINVERT PVS and
inverter stations, additional system components and
accessories are available for implementing photovoltaic
power plants according to IEC standards (see page 12).
With the MobileApp of the SINVERT WebMonitor, it is possible
to call up the current and historical data of the selected
photovoltaic plant remotely at any time, using a smartphone
or tablet computer (see page 22).
Your benefits at a glance:
■
Cost-effectiveness
– Good price/performance ratio
– Low installation costs
– High plant yields thanks to maximum efficiency over
very large power ranges
– Low operating costs thanks to the robust, durable
and low-maintenance design
– Reduced operating costs throughout the entire
operating period thanks to the master-slave principle
with rotating master, in which up to four inverter subunits are interconnected (see page 15)
■
Reliability
– Use of fully developed, tried-and-tested industrial
standard components
– Automatic diagnosis and signaling of faults
– Competent, professional support, worldwide service
– Modular service concept
– Compliance with the relevant guidelines
■
Transparency
– Central unit of the photovoltaic plant
– Automatic diagnostics on site or by means of remote
monitoring
– Pixel-graphics display with touch screen on the front
of the control cabinet enables simple and intuitive
operation and visualization of infeed power data and
other information
The modularity of the series and the free SINVERT Select
dimensioning software allow flexible planning of photovoltaic
plants (see page 20).
To obtain early warning of faults and creeping change due to
aging and wear, monitoring and control of a PV power plant
via a central control room is absolutely essential. Only in this
way can the operator initiate repairs and maintenance
measures at an early stage and thus avoid costly downtimes.
Central monitoring and control is therefore also an essential
part of a preventive maintenance system.

Options for SINVERT PVS 600Series inverters
Basic versions and options
1 000 V option
The SINVERT PVS 600Series of inverters can be adapted and
expanded by means of options in order to meet the individual
needs of the plant.
The 1 000 V option increases the maximum permissible input
voltage of the SINVERT PVS inverter from 820 to 1 000 V.
Provision of this option ensures that the PV plant will enter
operation smoothly even with voltages in excess of 820 V
which can occur, for example, on cold days or in arrays
containing thin-film modules. The option thus maximizes the
potential yield of the installation. The MPP voltage range of
the SINVERT PVS inverter is not changed.
The following 4 options are available:
– PV array grounding
– 1 000 V option
– Symmetry monitoring
– Cabinet heating
Symmetry monitoring
PV array grounding
In most cases, PV systems constitute a DC IT system. In a DC IT
system, neither the positive nor negative pole is grounded.
When using certain module types, however, either a positive
or negative grounding of the PV generator is required. It is
only by this grounding that damage to modules and a steady
loss of power can be prevented, i.e. that the maximum yield
can be obtained on a continuous basis.
The "PV array grounding positive pole" option allows functional
grounding of the positive conductor inside the SINVERT PVS
inverter if this is a requirement of the photovoltaic modules
used (e.g. large number of thick-film modules).
The "PV array grounding negative pole" option allows
functional grounding of the negative conductor inside the
SINVERT PVS inverter if this is a requirement of the photovoltaic
modules used (e.g. large number of thin-film modules).
PV systems no longer constitute a DC IT system when their
modules are grounded. For safety reasons, the PV system
must be fenced in and designated as an electrical operating
area. Only qualified electricians may be granted access.
Grounding an active conductor (positive pole or negative
pole) means that the inverter's insulation measuring function
no longer works in the normal way. A hazardous current can
start to flow as soon as the first insulation damage occurs. For
this reason, in the case of positive pole grounding, the current
between the positive pole and ground is measured, and in the
case of negative pole grounding, the current between the
negative pole and ground. When the current increases to a
critical level, the ground connection is automatically separated.

SINVERT PVS 600Series central inverters
The "symmetry monitoring" option measures the normalized
currents at the DC inputs internally and cross-compares the
values. If this comparison indicates deviations over time, a
message is generated. The message can be used as a guide to
localizing faults early in sections of the PV generator (e.g. cell
failure).
Cabinet heating
The "cabinet heating" option minimizes the risk of condensation forming on the moisture-sensitive components in the
SINVERT PVS photovoltaic inverter at low ambient temperatures. Reliable operation and maximum energy yields to the
grid are dependent on compliance with the operating temperature range prescribed for the relevant SINVERT PVS inverter.
This function is recommended for locations at which the
ambient temperature can drop below 7 °C.
Order numbers for the options
Each of the four options has its own order number which is
to be specified in addition to the order number of the basic
version (see "Selection and ordering data", page 23).

SINVERT PVS inverters for industrial roof systems
A SINVERT PVS2000 is used for the Aspropyrgos 2 MW roof system erected in Greece in 2011 for Big Solar
SINVERT PVS inverters for solar power plants
The 31 MW solar power plant at Les Mées in France was constructed in 2010/2011 for Eco Delta and connected to the grid in August 2011. For this project,
Siemens acted as a general contractor with an all-in-one concept from a single source, including maintenance, operation and warranty services.
SINVERT PVS500 inverters are in use at this PV solar plant with 112 400 solar modules installed over an area of 66 hectares. The SINVERT Select software
was used for the plant dimensioning, and the plant is monitored with WinCC software.

SINVERT PVS in power plants
Link between solar power and public AC grid
How solar power is fed into the AC grid
Sunlight is transformed into solar energy in the photovoltaic
modules. The direct current obtained is bundled in the field
with the aid of SINVERT PVS CombinerBoxes and then fed into
a SINVERT PVS inverter (see diagrams on this page).
The alternating current supplied by the inverters is transformed
by medium-voltage transformers into the higher voltages of
20 kV, for example, that are needed for feed-in to the grid.
With the two-stage concept, the module strings are initially
brought together in the SINVERT PVS CombinerBoxes (first
stage). The outputs of these SINVERT PVS CombinerBoxes
are then connected to other SINVERT PVS CombinerBoxes
(second stage). The outputs of the SINVERT PVS CombinerBoxes
of the second stage are then connected to the inputs of the
SINVERT PVS inverters or inverter stations. The advantage of
this two-stage concept is that power losses are reduced thanks
to the increased cable cross-sections.
Photovoltaic modules
The inverters and the transformers are in a protected location in
inverter stations, as is the optional medium-voltage switchgear,
which allows energy to be distributed and fed into the
medium-voltage grid (see diagram on page 14).
SINVERT PVS CombinerBoxes for bundling partial currents
Module strings can be "collected" and their energy transported
to the SINVERT PVS inverter or inverter station using a singlestage or two-stage connection concept:

IEC-compliant inverter stations
The inverter stations are system solutions for fast, simple
implementation of turnkey photovoltaic stations. They are
ideally suited for photovoltaic power plants ("Power Plant"
segment) with outputs of 1 000 kW upwards.
They are typically employed in ground-mounted systems.
Inverter stations contain two to four SINVERT PVS inverters
and, depending on the selected type, also medium-voltage
switchgear and medium-voltage transformers. They are
designed to convert solar energy reliably and cost-effectively
into grid-compatible energy for infeed into conventional
power grids.
All individual components of the inverter stations, such as
SINVERT PVS inverters and medium-voltage transformers, are
technically fully developed, designed for extreme ruggedness
electrical and mechanical properties and completely wired
and tested.
The inverter stations are available in power levels from
1 000 to 2 520 kW with 2, 3 or 4 inverter subunits comprising
the PVS500, PVS585, PVS600 and PVS630 inverters
(see diagram on page 5).

The inverters integrated in the inverter stations operate with a rotating master according to the master-slave principle.
The diagram shows in simplified form that the master moves to the next inverter each day (see left column). In actual fact, the inverter with the fewest
operating hours is started as the master on the next day.
Master-slave system with SINVERT PVS
The SINVERT PVS inverters integrated in the inverter stations
operate with a "rotating master" according to the master-slave
principle. This is a master-slave system comprising between
two and four interconnected inverter subunits. It employs an
ingenious process to connect or disconnect inverter subunits,
depending on the level of solar irradiation (determined
according to the sun's path, cloud conditions, etc.). The master is started up first and operates even when irradiation levels
are low. As irradiation levels increase, the next inverter
subunit is switched in as a slave when a set switching threshold is exceeded. Depending on the configuration, up to three
slaves can be switched in. As irradiation levels drop again, the
subunits are disconnected in stages. One advantage of the
master-slave principle is that the efficiency factor is higher
when irradiation levels (which determine the PV generator
output) are low than it would be if only a single inverter were
used.
In master-slave systems, the "rotating master" function always
starts the inverter subunit with the fewest operating hours as
the master. In this way, the total operating hours are evenly
distributed among all the subunits.

Regulation of the PV plant according to BDEW Guideline and the current amendment of the Renewable Energy Act (EEG) by means of
SINVERT PVS ControlBox 300 displayed with WinCC
The "Generating Plants in the Medium-Voltage Grid" BDEW
guideline stipulates this requirement for all systems feeding
in at the medium-voltage level. Its primary benefit is that it
enables grid operators to limit the output of the plant by
remote means in accordance with § 6 of the Renewable Energy
Act 2009.
The ControlBox 300 offers a wide range of open-loop and
closed-loop control functions, e.g.:

SINVERT PVS inverters in the PV plant, e.g. setpoint
value = 2 MW (active power fixed value)
– Specification of a fixed reactive power for all individual
SINVERT PVS inverters in the PV plant, e.g.
setpoint value = 100 kvar inductive (reactive power
fixed value)
– Specification of a fixed power factor cos ϕ for all
individual SINVERT PVS inverters in the PV plant, e.g.
setpoint value = -0.95

The SINVERT PVS WeatherStation 200 acquires data
about the weather at the photovoltaic plant site. This weather
data is recorded by sensors connected to the station. The
following sensors are included in the scope of supply of the
WeatherStation 200:
– Insolation
– Module temperature
– Ambient temperature
Additional sensors such as wind speed or rain sensors can be
connected.
The SINVERT PVS ComBox 200 has the same scope of functions
as the ComBox 100, but also provides the capability of transferring data from the SINVERT PVS inverters and from additional
network-capable components to the SINVERT WebMonitor
web application for monitoring photovoltaic plants.
Weather station
Using the acquired data, it is possible to perform and transmit
extremely precise weather recordings. The target yield of the
photovoltaic plant can then be calculated from the recorded
weather data. By comparing the actual and target yield, it is
possible to make a quick assessment of the plant's operating
performance and detect any irregularities very promptly.
The SINVERT PVS WeatherStation 200 offers the following
connection options:

SINVERT Select: Proposed solution for dimensioning a photovoltaic plant,
including plant details
SINVERT Select is a free program which facilitates the dimensioning, analysis and optimization of photovoltaic plants with
SINVERT inverters and outputs from a few kilowatts up to the
megawatt range.
Two different methods can be employed to dimension a
photovoltaic plant with SINVERT inverters:
■
■
With the automatic dimensioning method, the
SINVERT Select program first uses the information you
enter (string/central inverter, location, photovoltaic
module, rated power, etc.) to automatically identify the
best possible inverter variant. For this variant, it
calculates the performance ratio (PR) and the potential
energy yield per annum. Individual configurations can
be compared, assessed and optimized on the basis of
these parameters.
With the manual dimensioning method, you can input
one or two SINVERT inverter types in addition to the
information about location, photovoltaic module, and
rated power. Optionally, their quantity can also be
specified.
After you have registered, you can download the
SINVERT Select program free of charge at:

Options for SINVERT PVS 600Series inverters
When ordering an inverter, the order numbers of the respective
option are added to the order number of the basic version, i.e.
if all four possible options are utilized, five order numbers
must be specified for ordering the inverter concerned.
The number of slaves of the respective SINVERT PVS 600Series
inverters is to be specified by the 11th digit of the order
numbers of the inverters and of the associated options. This
simplifies the assignment of the options. The number x of
slaves is also specified in the identifications of the options in
the suffix MxS (M = Master, S = Slaves)
For a description of the options see page 10

■
The following applies to all three benefits levels:
– Assured availability of spare parts over the entire
term of the contract
– A 24-hour hotline has been set up to provide technical
support by our Technical Assistance team and to

needed on site over the contract term shall be
provided free of charge by Siemens.
– Siemens will supply the required parts free of charge
on receipt of notification that routine maintenance is
due.
