The history of Schneider Electric
Schneider Electric, founded in 1836, has transformed itself
into the global specialist in energy management. From
its roots in the iron and steel industry, heavy machinery,
and ship building, it moved into electricity and automation
management. In the late 20th century the Schneider Group
shifted its focus to the electrical industry by separating
from its non-strategic activities and was solidified though
its acquisitions of Telemecanique in 1988, Square D in
1991 and Merlin Gerin in 1992. In 1999 development of
installation, systems and control was bolstered with the
acquisition of Lexel, Europe’s number two in electrical
distribution. In May of the same year, the company was
renamed Schneider Electric to more clearly emphasize
its expertise in the electrical field.
TM
From 2000 through 2009 Schneider Electric entered into
a phase of organic growth and began positioning itself in
new market segments: UPS (uninterruptible power supply),
movement control, building automation and security and
renewable energy through the acquisitions of APC, Clipsal,
TAC, Pelco, Xantrex Technology and more. As a global
specialist in energy management with operations in more
3
than 100 countries, Schneider Electric offers integrated
solutions across multiple market segments, including
leadership positions in energy and infrastructure, industrial
processes, building automation, and data centers/
networks, as well as a broad presence in residential
applications. Focused on making energy safe, reliable,
efficient, productive and green, the company's 100,000
plus employees achieved sales of 15.8 billion euros in
2009, through an active commitment to help individuals
and organizations "Make the most of their energy™."
Renewable Energies
In October of 2008, with Schneider Electric’s purchase
of Xantrex Technology, a significant milestone was
reached in the company’s expansion into the renewable
energies sector. Combining Xantrex’s knowledge and
expertise in renewable energies and Schneider Electric’s
depth of experience in energy management was critical for
the future success of the organization in this space.
The renewable energies business of Schneider Electric
is focused on designing and developing renewable energy
products and solutions and providing best-in-class, global
customer service and technical support.
> About Schneider Electric
Make the most of your energy
Schneider Electric provides the full solution from the panel
DC output to the grid connection, including monitoring
& supervision. In 2009, Schneider Electric introduced
a customizable solution geared to photovoltaic (PV) power
plants. The Schneider Electric PV Box is a pre-wired
equipment package specifically designed to meet the
growing demand of large scale grid-tied solar farms and
large commercial rooftop solar installations. The PV Box is
a complete solution for electrical distribution, automation,
security, monitoring and control available from one vendor.
A PV Box typically consists of solar inverters, DC
combiner boxes, step-up transformers and a medium
voltage switch housed in a prefabricated building to allow
quick field wiring from both the solar arrays and the utility
grid connection point. Other items can be added to the
package including climate controls, security equipment,
array string monitoring, SCADA monitoring equipment,
and power metering, accompanied by operation and
maintenance offerings.
With the PV Box, customers can significantly reduce total
electrical installation costs and project cycle time. This
product offers customers a reliable and complete solution
from a company with over 100 years of experience
designing electrical distribution and control systems.
In addition, because the PV Box enclosure provides a
controlled environment for its components, it can be
installed in a variety of climates, including harsh desert
environments where many future large scale solar projects
are planned.

Basic grid-tie system
A basic grid-tie system consists of solar cells and a grid tie inverter. Solar cells take
the sun’s energy and turn it into DC electricity. The inverter turns the DC electricity
generated by the solar cells into utility grade AC power which can be sold to the utility
grid. A grid-tie system is an effective way to obtain economical benefits, increase
green energy production and improve the environment.
Large-scale solar electrical systems play an important part in conservation and energy
production, and Schneider Electric is a premier supplier of inverters that turn the sun’s
energy into clean electricity. Grid tie inverters are a leading choice for large-scale solar
installations in Europe.

Basic off-grid system
With an off-grid system, you can easily produce your own power without the expense
and environmental impact of extending power lines, or relying completely on a generator.
A basic off-grid system consists of a renewable energy source, which generates DC
power, a battery bank that stores the DC power, and an inverter. Our inverter is the
intelligent center of a renewable power system, seamlessly converting DC power to
clean AC electricity for your needs.
With a backup system, grid-connected homes can benefit from electricity even if there
is a grid failure. An inverter/charger automatically detects the failure and instantly switches
to backup power stored in a battery bank that stores the DC power.

Alternating current (AC)
Off-grid
The type of electricity supplied by the utility company.
The unique characteristic of this form of electricity is that
it reverses direction at regular intervals. For example,
230 Vac 50 Hz power reverses flow 50 times a second,
hence the rating 50 Hz (cycles).
An electrical system that is not connected to a utility
distribution grid.
Ground fault protection (GFP)
A unit of measure of the flow of electrical current.
A shock hazard protection device that limits the flow
of electrical current to earth. Usually required in wet
locations, e.g. for outdoor, kitchen, and bathroom
circuits.
Amp hour (Ah)
Hertz (Hz)
One amp of electrical current flowing for one hour.
The unit Ah is an expression of the capacity (size)
of a battery.
The frequency, or number of times per second, that the
flow of AC electricity reverses itself. Also referred to as
cycles (see alternating current).
Current
High battery voltage protection
The rate of flow of electric charge, usually expressed
in amps (or amperes).
A control circuit that disconnects charge current flowing
to the battery before voltage reaches a dangerously high
threshold. Prevents damage created by excess gassing
(or boiling) of electrolyte.
Amp (A)
Direct current (DC)
The type of electricity stored in batteries and generated
by solar electric devices. Current flows in a single
direction.
Electrolyte
A conductive medium in which the flow of electricity
takes place; this is the liquid found inside storage
batteries.
Idle current
The amount of electrical current required to keep an
inverter ready to produce electricity on demand.
Inrush current
The peak current an appliance or tool will draw at the
instant it starts up.
Grid
Kilowatt (kW)
When used in reference to utility power, it refers to a
system of electrical transmission and distribution lines.
One thousand watts of electricity. Ten 100-watt light
bulbs use one kW of electrical power.
Kilowatt hour (kWh)
One kW of electrical power used for one hour. Most grid
connected electrical meters measure kWh for billing
purposes.

> Glossary of terms
Line loss
Series wiring
A voltage drop caused by resistance in wire during
transmission of electrical power over distance.
Batteries or PV modules wired together to increase
voltage, while ampacity remains constant. Two 100 Ah
12 Vdc batteries wired in series form a 100 Ah 24 Vdc
battery bank.
Load
Any device that consumes electricity to operate.
Appliances, tools, and lights are examples of
electrical loads.
Low battery protection
A control circuit that stops the flow of electricity
from batteries to loads when battery voltage drops
to low levels.
Modified sine wave
Also called a modified square wave, this type of
waveform emulates a sine wave using a series of steps.
Overload/overcurrent protection
A control circuit designed to protect an inverter, load,
or wiring against current exceeding its capacity. (A fuse,
for example, is an overcurrent protection device.)
Parallel wiring
Batteries or PV modules, wired together to increase
ampacity, while voltage remains constant.
Two 100 Ah 12 Vdc batteries wired in parallel will form
a 200 Ah 12 Vdc battery bank.
Photovoltaic (PV) array
A group of solar (PV) panels connected together to
convert energy from sunlight into DC electrical energy.
Sine wave
Surge capacity
The amount of current an inverter can deliver for short
periods of time. For example, electric motors draw up to
6 times their rated current while starting. An inverter will
provide surge current to meet the start-up requirements
of motors or other loads with high inrush current.
Transfer switch
A switch designed to transfer electricity being supplied
to loads from one source of power to another.
Volts (V)
A unit of measure of voltage, which is the electromotive
force or electric potential difference between two points
in a circuit.
Watt(s) (W)
A unit of measure of the amount of electrical power
consumed by a load or supplied by a source such as
the grid or an inverter.
Watts = volts x amps x power factor
Watt hour (Wh)
Electrical energy consumption or capacity measured in
terms of time. One watt hour of electricity is equal to
one watt of power being consumed for one hour.
The type of AC waveform produced by the utility or
by most generators.
