Satcon Technology has been selected by Western Wind and Lord Electric to provide 20 of its 1.5MW Equinox prism platform solutions for a photovoltaic (PV) power plant in Puerto Rico.

Western Wind and Lord Electric will be responsible for the installation of the prism platforms, which include factory-integrated step-up transformers, MV disconnect switches and power conversion electronics.

The solutions are designed to leverage Satcon's next-generation Equinox PV inverters with 98.5% peak efficiency and the industry's widest thermal operating range.

The solar farm will also feature Satcon's EDGE Adaptive Control Architecture (ACA), enabling instant voltage stabilisation, frequency control and dynamic grid support, Satcon said.

This site is expected to be energised in March 2013.
