Dynapower and Raychem RPG Advance Indian Storage Market

This week Adam Knudsen, Dynapower President, joined partners from Raychem RPG in India, at the Renewable Energy India Expo, Asia’s largest and most influential event in the renewable energy market.

Dynapower and Raychem RPG joined forces in May to bring Dynapower’s energy storage inverter technology to India and neighboring SAARC countries. “Dynapower’s differentiated technology such as its patented Dynamic Transfer, their focus on solutions, and aggressive growth mindset aligns perfectly with the Raychem RPG business model,” said Ramani Kasi, Raychem RPG President & CEO.

Since partnering, Dynapower and Raychem RPG commissioned India’s first 1MW microgrid at the Central Electronics Limited (CEL) solar-photovoltaic (SPV) cell manufacturing facility in Sahibadad, Uttar Pradesh, India. The project is a locally controllable power system composed to distribute generation combining solar and diesel gensets alongside energy storage connected to the main grid power system.

The CEL project was a central talking point at the Energy India Expo, where Knudsen cut the ribbon for Raychem’s booth alongside Nitin Sharma, Raychem RPG Vice President and Business Head Solar & Energy Storage, to begin the tradeshow.

“The project should run both in on-grid mode, as well as grid-forming mode, which is when the grid is not available, and still provide the best possible high quality, uninterrupted power, which is really critical. We’re extremely happy, the project is working well, and we had support from Dynapower,” Sharma said.

Knudsen not only met with partners at Raychem RPG, but also connected with other emerging renewable energy companies, to talk about DC-DC energy storage. “It’s great to see the excitement around the energy market here in India. We’re excited to introduce energy storage to the Indian market and hopefully impact people’s lives by providing clean and reliable energy,” Knudsen wrote back to Dynapower in an email.

First Storage-Only Certified Smart Inverter

South Burlington, VT – Dynapower, the global leader in energy storage inverters, and Intertek, a leading provider of quality solutions to industries worldwide, are proud to jointly announce that Dynapower’s MPS-250 is the first storage-only energy inverter to be confirmed by Intertek to meet the UL 1741 SA requirements for a “smart” inverter.

Compliance with this standard ensures that Dynapower’s MPS-250 smart inverter is California Rule 21 and Hawaii Rule 14H compliant through development of advanced inverter features. This was achieved by Dynapower through the use of Intertek’s SATELLITE™ Data Acceptance Program.

“Dynapower has always been on the forefront of energy storage inverter technology and we are extremely pleased and proud to receive confirmation from Intertek that our MPS-250 inverter meets the UL 1741 SA draft requirements,” said Chip Palombini, sales manager of the energy storage group at Dynapower. “Working through the Intertek SATELLITE program enabled Dynapower to have full control over the timeline of the compliance process.”

“Intertek is proud to work with global leaders like Dynapower to advance the energy industry through smart inverter functionality, enabling PV integration and improving grid resiliency, crucial steps toward smart grids and smart cities,” said Sunny Rai, Vice President of Renewable Energy at Intertek. “Dynapower’s storage-only energy inverters are the first confirmed by Intertek to meet the UL 1741 SA draft requirements, and they achieved this through Intertek’s SATELLITE program, which allows manufacturers to run more efficient compliance programs.”

In addition to the smart inverter features required by the new standard, Dynapower also incorporated Dynamic Transfer as a standard feature into the Generation 2 MPS-250. Dynamic Transfer enables a “backup power” mode of operation for energy storage systems.
