Japan – Leading the World in Photovoltaic Generation
Mitsubishi Electric is a leading manufacturer of reliable
clean-energy systems worldwide.
The price of oil continues to escalate higher as fossil fuel reserves are depleted, further enhancing
the importance of resolving the problem of future energy supply.
Mitsubishi Electric has brought the world many machinery breakthroughs in the new energy and
energy conserving fields, in targeting the environment and energy issues. Among these advances are
our photovoltaic power generation systems, which, riding the heightened global environmental
awareness in recent years, are now in wide use not only in Japan but around the world as well.
Our photovoltaic power generation technology stems from the combination of artificial satellite
technology inherited into solar cells and with power generation plant and semiconductor technology evolved into photovoltaic inverters, with numerous milestones having been achieved to date.
Having accumulated extensive experience in the industry, we are now pleased to introduce our
reliable photovoltaic systems, developed to provide superior performance.
From solar cells, to inverters. At Mitsubishi Electric,
we independently integrate all of our development
and production operations.
The shift to photovoltaic power, as the promised energy
source of the 21st century, continues to gain momentum. With increased use, however, comes rising
demands for reliability. To meet that challenge,
Mitsubishi Electric has moved to integrated production
of all system equipment, from solar cells to inverters, at
its own plants. Complementing premier performance,
the hallmark of all Mitsubishi Electric products, the
stellar reliability of these systems ensures their introduction with full confidence, and total peace of mind.

Photovoltaic inverters are electronic devices used on a constant basis over extended periods of time, making long-term reliability
essential. At Mitsubishi Electric, we have mobilized our long years of experience and know-how to introduce design and structural
improvements in the quest for such long-term reliability. We believe that the supply of malfunction-free products is the greatest
service of all, and continue to set our sights on this vital goal.

At Mitsubishi Electric, an original
derating design concept reduces
the electrical stress of each electrical
component by the rated value for
actual use time, lowering the
product failure rate and ensuring
reliability for the long term.
With adoption of our original derating design
concept, the very first Mitsubishi Electric
photovoltaic inverter (400kW) delivered continues
to operate today, more than two decades after its
installation in 1985.

Original Cooling and Clean structure
Use of the high-speed temperature
control ventilator to minimize the
output suppressed by temperature
increases inside the inverter.
Based on the Mitsubishi Electric
original cooling and heat radiation
structure, a breakthrough perfected
from long years of experience, the
wind introduced from the fan cools
only the power module component,
blocking excessive flow to the substrate. This maintains cleanliness in
the substrate section, a feature that
contributes to superb and unwavering reliability. Based on this cooling
structure, installation is possible over
a broad range of use environment
temperatures (-25ºC to +60ºC).
Original Drain Structure of Housing
9
Based on know-how cultivated
through the solar module construction method, a unique drain structure is adopted on the inverter cover
connection component. This
arrangement keeps water out of
the inverter interior by flushing it
outside, and in doing so satisfies
the IP41 enclosure standard.
IP: International Protection
Photovoltaic inverters are utilized under conditions of high voltage and other fierce environments, over extended periods of time.
Malfunctions, meanwhile, depending on the degree of trouble, harbor the threat of smoking. At Mitsubishi Electric, each product is
designed with safety as the top priority, ensuring customer peace of mind for as long as that inverter remains in service.
Terminal block connecting method
with ring tongue terminals

Connecting with ring tongue
terminals raises the connection
reliability, with faulty connection
prevention plate installed between
the DC and AC input terminals to
avert faulty cable connections. This
also generates cost savings by
eliminating the need for specialized
tools to connect ring tongue
terminals and cables form solar
modules.

Photovoltaic inverters are installed at locations ranging from cellar of private house to garages, farms and various other sites, where
they are connected with monocrystalline silicon, polycrystalline silicon, amorphous silicon and other solar cells. To best respond to
the demands of installation firms, Mitsubishi Electric devotes keen consideration to the key points of: (1) simple system design, (2)
application and system compatibility, and (3) easy installation.
