System
The solar inverter converts direct current from the solar cells into alternating current.
This enables you to feed your self-produced solar energy into the public grid.
Thanks to efficient MPP tracking, maximum capacity utilization of the solar energy plant
is ensured even in the case of cloudy sky conditions.
The string concept means that PV modules are always connected in series (in a string)
and/or that strings with the same voltage are connected in parallel to the solar inverter
with the aim of significantly reducing the photovoltaic system’s cabling requirements.

5.1
Data evaluation and communication
The integrated data display, processing and communication of the device enables
easy operation of the solar inverter. Monitoring of the operational status and signaling
of operational failures are capable of being called up over the device display. The data
interface enables the downloading of data which can be evaluated with a PC system
and guarantees continuous recording of operating data.
The best way of accessing this functionality is via the available accessories; comprehensive and seamless solar inverter monitoring is ensured.
The data read-out over the integrated interface and the display is possible only in solar
operation.
5.2
Technical structure of the solar inverter
A galvanical isolation of the solar inverter from the grid is achieved through a DC/AC
converter with an integrated high-frequency transformer. The photovoltaic voltage is
adjusted so that the maximum power output of the PV modules is also achieved with
varying solar irradiation levels and temperatures (MPP-Tracking).
The MPP range of the solar inverter is between 150 V and 450 V. This facilitates the
use of PV modules by a variety of manufacturers. Measures must be taken to ensure
that the maximum open-circuit voltage of 540 VDC is never exceeded. Please note that
the maximum open-circuit voltage will occur at the lowest temperatures anticipated. You
will find more detailed information about temperature dependency in the data sheet of
the PV modules. The device’s power consumption is kept to a minimum.
The high-quality aluminum casing corresponds to protection class IP65 (water-jet-proof
and dust-proof) and is protected against weathering processes by surface refinement.
The cooling characteristic profile is designed so that operation of the inverter is possible
with ambient temperatures from -25°C to +70°C.
A cooling characteristic profile is used for the removal of the power dissipation caused
through the voltage conversion. An internal temperature control protects the device
against excessive temperatures in the interior of the solar inverter. In case of high ambient temperatures, the maximum transferable power is limited.
The solar inverter is controlled by microcontrollers, which also implement interface communication and the monitoring of values and messages on the display.
Two independent and redundant microcontrollers control the monitoring of the grid,
which is consistent with the feed-in directives of your local utility company. This enables
an installation of the solar inverter in the in-house electrical grid.
Operator protection requirements are met by electrically isolating the grid from the
PV module. The electrical isolation between the grid and the PV module is equivalent
to basic insulation. Maximum operator protection is ensured by reinforced isolation
between the grid, PV modules and accessible interfaces (display, RS485 interface).
Relevant standards concerning electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and safety are
fulfilled.

Operation and installation manual SOLIVIA 3.3 AP G3 TR
The solar inverter is functional in on-grid operation exclusively. An automated isolation
point, which is approved by a certification agency, guarantees secure disconnection in
case of circuit isolation or interruptions in power supply and avoids isolated operation.
EN
The disconnection equipment allows for automatic isolation for in-plant generation systems of nominal power ≤ 4.6 kVA, with single-phase parallel feed-in through the solar
inverter into the grid.

Grid connection
The grid (AC output) is connected over a Wieland RST25i3S AC connector. You can
find the correct allocation on the screw-type terminal connection of the connector. The
solar inverter must be connected to the grid over a three-core line (L, N, PE). The connected AC line must be switched potential-free before the disconnection or the insertion
of the AC connector.
The connection to the Wieland AC connector must be made with a flexible line and a
conductor cross section of min. 2.5 mm² to max. 4.0 mm².
An automatic circuit breaker is to be provided in the line L upstream of every device,
with a nominal current of 25 A and tripping characteristic type B or C (please refer to
your local country installation requirements and regulations for correct tripping characteristic type). In addition, attention is to be paid to the selectivity of the fuse unit
attached upstream of the automatic circuit breaker.
The solar inverter must be grounded via the AC connector’s PE conductor. To do this,
connect the PE conductor to the designated terminal. If you wish to integrate more than
one inverter into the installation, please proceed as illustrated in the drawings in the
appendix.
Please note the cable length and the cable cross-section, due to the risk of undesirable
temperature rise and power losses.
The AC connector is protected from unintentional disconnection by a clip mechanism
which can be released with a screwdriver.
7.7
Connection of PV modules
Before the photovoltaic system is connected, the polarity of the PV voltage at the MultiContact connectors must be checked to ensure that it is correct.
The connection of the PV module is implemented using Multi-Contact MC4 connectors,
where the DC negative pole is located on the connector upper row and the DC positive
pole on the connector lower row. The connectors are coded to prevent you from accidentally plugging them into the wrong terminal.
Please ensure the following at all times:
●●
That there is never any risk of anyone coming into contact with the solar inverter
connection terminals, due to the risk of dangerous voltages across them.
●●
That under no circumstances are the PV modules to be disconnected from the
solar inverter under load. If a disconnection should be necessary, first switch the
grid off so that the solar inverter cannot absorb any further power. Next, open the
upstream DC disconnector.
The maximum input voltage of the solar inverter is 540 V. The maximum current load of
each individual Multi-Contact MC4 connector is 18 A.

EN
The solar inverter has an insulation and grounding monitoring on the DC side. The
options can be configured in the Setup menu “S -> Solar ISO / GND” (see „8.3.7.1 Submenu S: Solar ISO / GND“, page 31).
The insulation monitoring has two modes:
●●
ISO-ON-Error (the solar inverter is disconnected from the grid in the event of an
insulation fault)
●●
ISO-ON-Warning (the solar inverter indicates the fault but is not disconnected from
the grid).
Deltas solar inverters are factory-set to ISO-ON-Warning mode on delivery.
The grounding monitoring has two modes:
●●
PV+ grounding (grounding monitoring of the positive pole of the PV generator)
●●
PV- grounding (grounding monitoring of the negative pole of the PV generator).
In these modes the solar inverter remains in feed-in operation and will not be disconnected from the grid in case of a fault. The error message “PV+ grounding fault” or “PVgrounding fault” will appear on the display.
If you need to connect the positive or negative pole of the PV system to meet requirements set out by the module manufacturer, you can do this. Earth continuity must be
implemented close to the inverter. We suggest using Deltas grounding kit “Grounding
Set A Solar” (EOE99000275). The grounding connection is monitored and should be
configured in the Setup menu (see „8.3.7 Submenu S (Setup)“, page 30).
Alternatively, it is possible to turn off the insulation- and grounding monitoring:

Electrical connection and operational start-up
The electrical connection is utilized on this solar inverter using the connector contacts
which are attached to the casing. In no case must the device be opened!
In order to connect the device electrically, the following procedures must be followed:
1. DC connection: First, connect the PV module strings to the DC disconnector (not
included in the scope of delivery).
2. Connect the DC disconnector to the solar inverter (ensure correct polarity).
3. AC connection: Please install the Wieland AC mating connector to the AC output
cable and then put the AC connector to the solar inverter. Please make sure, that
the sleeve nut is properly fixed and tighten.
4. Before switching on the power, check all feeders and connections one last time.
5. Close the DC disconnector.
6. Close the circuit breaker on the AC output side.
7. In case of sufficient PV voltage (UPV > 150 V), the device now goes into the startup mode.
8. In case of a new installation the time and date have to be set in sub-menu S
(Setup) (see „8.3.7 Submenu S (Setup)“, page 30).
NOTE
To ensure protection conforming to IP65 all unused connections and
interfaces must be closed using the provided sealing plugs.

Diagnostics and data evaluation
9.1
Malfunction rectification
The solar inverter is provided with an automatic diagnostics system which independently identifies certain faults and which can make them visible on the display.
Troubleshooting in the field
In principle, it is always worth attempting a reset by reinitializing the solar inverter whenever an error message appears on the display.
To reset the device, proceed as follows:
1. Isolate the solar inverter from the grid (open automatic circuit breaker).
2. Switch off the DC disconnector.
3. Wait: approx. 1 minute.
4. Switch DC disconnector back on.
5. Switch in grid (close automatic circuit breaker).
Operation and installation manual SOLIVIA 3.3 AP G3 TR
33
(In the field, the first step is to scan for potential fault causes that could be picked up by
the solar inverter and result in tripping.)
Various key parameters can be scanned via the display, thereby enabling conclusions
to be drawn about potential fault causes.

Glossary
AC
Abbreviation for „Alternating Current“.
Anti-islanding protection
This is a unit for grid monitoring with assigned switching elements (anti-islanding protection) and is an automatic isolation point for small power generation systems (to 30
kWp).
CE
With the CE identification code, the manufacturer confirms the conformity of the product
with the valid EC Guideline and compliance with the significant requirements stipulated
therein.
DC
Abbreviation for „Direct Current“.
EMC
The Electro-Magnetic Compatibility (EMC) concerns the technical and legal basics of
the mutual influencing of electrical devices through electromagnetic fields caused by
them in electrical engineering.
Initialization
Under initialization (cf. English to initialize) is understood the part of the loading process
of a program, in which the storage space required for the execution (e.g. variable, code,
buffers ...) for the program is reserved and is filled with initial values.
Local utility company
By local utility company is meant a company which generates electrical energy and
distributes it over the public grid.
MPP
The Maximum Power Point is the point of the current-voltage diagram of a PV cell at
which the largest power can be tapped off, i.e. the point at which the product of current
and voltage has its maximum value.

Operation and installation manual SOLIVIA 3.3 AP G3 TR
Nominal power
Nominal power is the maximum permissible continuous power output indicated by the
manufacturer for a device or a system. Usually the device is also optimized so that the
efficiency is at its maximum in case of operation with nominal power.
Nominal current
Nominal current is the absorbed current in case of electrical devices if the device is
supplied with the nominal voltage and yields its nominal power.
PE
In electric systems and cables a protective earth conductor is frequently employed. This
is also called grounding wire, protective grounding device, soil, grounding or PE (English „protective earth“).
Photovoltaics (abbr.: PV)
The conversion of PV energy into electrical energy.
The name is composed of the component parts: Photos - the Greek word for light - and
Volta - after Alessandro Volta, a pioneer in electrical research.
Potential isolation
No conductive connection between two component parts.
Power dissipation
Power dissipation is designated as the difference between absorbed power and power
of a device or process yielded. Power dissipation is released mainly as heat.
PV cell
PV cells are large-surface photodiodes which convert light energy (generally sunlight)
into electrical energy. This comes about by utilization of the photoelectric effect (photovoltaics).
PV generator
System comprising a number of PV modules.
Operation and installation manual SOLIVIA 3.3 AP G3 TR
43
EN
PV module
Part of a PV generator; converts PV energy into electrical energy.
RJ45
Abbreviation for standardized eight-pole electrical connector connection. RJ stands for
Registered Jack (standardized socket).
RS485 (EIA485)
Differential voltage interface on which the genuine signal is transmitted on one core and
the negated (or negative) signal on the other core.
Separate grid system
Energy supply equipment which is completely independent of an interconnected grid.
Solar inverter
is an electrical device which converts DC direct voltage into AC voltage and/or direct
current into alternating current.
String
Designates a group of electrical PV modules switched in series.
String solar inverter (solar inverter concept)
The PV generator is divided up into individual strings which feed into the grid over
their own string solar inverters in each case. In this way, the installation is considerably
facilitated and the gain decrease, which can arise from the installation or from different
shading conditions of the PV modules, is considerably reduced.
TAB (2000)
The TAB 2000 are the technical regulations governing connection to the low-voltage
grid operated by distribution system operators in Germany. These Technischen
Anschlussbestimmungen or TAB for short have been in force since the year 2000. They
define the requirements imposed by DSOs on the electrical systems operated by the
end customers of utility companies.
