The PIKO MP delivers extremely stable yields and its broad input voltage range provides numerous wiring options for the PV modules.
In combination with the KOSTAL Smart Energy Meter, the PIKO MP plus changes from a pure solar inverter to a hybrid inverter and, in addition to the PV generator, also offers a connection option for charging and discharging a storage unit. The PIKO MP plus hybrid inverter is ideally suited for small photovoltaic systems on single-family homes.
The PIKO MP plus has already successfully proven itself several times during the electricity storage inspection at the HTW Berlin.
The single-phase PIKO MP plus 4.6-2 showed its strengths in both DC and AC operation, achieving high efficiencies with an SPI of 90 percent (DC) and 89.6 percent (AC).
This is thanks to its high battery efficiency coupled with fast settling time and low standby consumption with high inverter efficiency.
The single-phase inverter of the PIKO MP plus series is therefore particularly economical as a conversion and control unit for solar systems with connected storage.
In the power ratings from 3.0 to 5.0 kW, the PIKO MP plus offers variants with 2 MPP trackers, one of which can be used as a bidirectional port for PV, as well as for a high-voltage battery. This means that the PIKO MP plus can be used as a hybrid inverter in combination with the KOSTAL Smart Energy Meter. In this case, the KOSTAL Smart Energy Meter takes over responsibility for the energy management and controls the energy flow of the inverter.
The PIKO MP plus is particularly well suited as a hybrid inverter when installing a new photovoltaic system on a small roof area or in a country where most house connections are single-phase.
