The Windy Boy 8000US includes special firmware that permits a direct grid-tied operation with a broad range of wind turbines. Its longevity is enhanced by SMA’s patented OptiCool active temperature-management system and rugged cast-aluminum outdoor-rated enclosure. The inverter features a CEC weighted efficiency of 96%, resulting in exceptional energy yields. It is also certified to the UL 1741/IEEE1547 standard.
Designers can take advantage of the unit’s versatility. For instance, the wind inverter can be installed with a direct grid-tied connection or as part of a micro-grid in conjunction with the company’s Sunny Boy solar inverter, and Sunny Island battery inverter and management system, providing grid-quality power to remote locations.
