The PLENTICORE plus has 3 DC inputs with a wide input voltage range. The third input can be enabled for connecting a compatible battery if required. Furthermore, it is also possible to connect additional AC sources, such as further PV inverters, a small wind turbine or a combined heat and power unit. The energy manager implemented in the inverter coordinates the power available from PV, battery, the energy supply company’s grid and AC sources present in the house grid.
The PLENTICORE plus has a self-learning and integrated shadow management system for maximum yields. The inverter also has an integrated data logger and continuously transmits yield data to the KOSTAL Solar Portal. The data can be visualised perfectly in the portal and with the KOSTAL Solar App. All collected data can be accessed in the free KOSTAL Solar Portal and the connected KOSTAL Solar App. So the hybrid inverter has been making full use of all its various functions since market launch.
