PLENTICORE plus 5.5: high efficiency, powerful performance
In the test for 5 kW devices, the PLENTICORE plus 5.5 and BYD's HVS 7.7 Battery Box excelled with their high efficiency levels and achieved an SPI of 92.2 percent. Therefore, the device achieved a strong third place in the overall field of participants and maintained its top ranking as a system/battery pairing for the sixth year in a row.
The top result was achieved by the latest software optimisation and the control dynamics were improved, also by eliminating the 70 percent active power cap. The high efficiency levels of the inverter and high-voltage battery lead to a strong overall total output for the system, according to the HTW test result.
The results of the storage inspection are in: the PLENTICORE plus 5.5 kW ranks among the top 3 in its power class, once again confirming the position achieved in the previous year.
PLENTICORE BI 10/26: the partner for large energy reserves
The AC battery inverter PLENTICORE BI was absolutely convincing in its 10 kW/26 amp version with a connected BYD Premium HVS 12.8 Battery Box, delivering an SPI of 94.0 percent and thereby confirming its very good efficiency. This sees the system increase its performance by 1.3 percent compared to the previous year and is therefore recommended as a top duo for fast charging and discharging cycles with effective management of large current reserves.
The KOSTAL-BYD team exhibits minimal losses during charging processes with efficient control and outstanding energy management. Brilliant advantage: the usable battery capacity is over 12 kWh, with the fast and powerful discharge power of 10 kW coming into its own. Thanks to a high conversion efficiency of 96 percent, the inverter transfers almost all of the energy from the battery back into the AC grid.
At the SPI 2023, the PLENTICORE BI 10/26 impressed as the three-phase class leader among all AC-coupled systems in the 10 kW power range.
