The SMA Tripower STP-12000TL is a 12kW commercial inverter that operates at 480Vac, rated for 1000Vdc or 600Vdc systems. The SMA Sunny Tripower is the commercial solution for decentralized PV power plants. This three-phase transformerless inverter is UL listed for up to 1000 V DC maximum system voltage and has peak efficiency above 98 percent. The OptiTrac Global Peak minimizes the effects of shade for maximum energy production. The Sunny Tripower delivers a future-proof solution with full grid management, and communications and monitoring features. The inverter offers flexibility with a wide input voltage range and two independent MPP trackers. Suitable for both 600 Vdc and 1,000 Vdc solar installation, the Sunny Tripower allows for flexible design and a lower cost of energy.
