Current Output

TDG Monocrystalline silicon array, fixed ground-mount.

TDG AC module: TDG 250W Monocrystalline module integrated with YC500 micro-inverter supplied by APS which is a global leading micro-inverter manufacturer invested by TDG.

TDG AC modules are easy to install, in this simplified system, installers just need to plug TDG AC modules together with provided connectors, rather than wiring lots of DC cables to connect the system.

Each TDG AC module has an individual MPPT which means each AC module produces its maximum power. For the same system size, it is believed that energy generated by an AC system is significantly more than a DC system. TDG AC module requires lower minimum power to start up, it has a better response to low light environment, especially in cloudy day and morning & evening.

In addition, as power output of each AC module is ready-to-use Alternate Current, and is connected in parallel, so there is no high DC voltage in this whole system, which enhances the system’s safety.

TDG, founded in 1984, listed in 2001, is a multinational, diversified industrial group with over 10,000 employees globally. Proudly being a pioneer to introduce AC module to Australia, we are now here to help building a better tomorrow for Australian.

Notes on the Data

  1. Monitoring Interruption for UPS Battery Replacement

    The disconnection and re-connection of the solar arrays and weather station equipment while a new site connection was being established prompted the already flattening UPS batteries which power the site’s energy meters to fail and require immediate replacement. Data recording was affected from approximately 2.30pm ACST, Monday 10 July to 4.00pm, Wednesday 12 July.

    Affects weather data for DKASC, Alice Springs

  2. Site 31: Hot Spots

    A recent annual maintenance inspection observed hot spots on two solar modules: the third module from the east in the bottom row and the second module from the west in the top row.

  3. Partial System Outage

    One of the major switchboards at the DKASC lost power yesterday 01/12/2016 at ~11:00 am. This isolated and shutdown array sites 23 through to 37 inclusive. The switchboard was re-energised at ~16:30 today (02/12/2016) and is again operating normally. Data for this period for these sites is lost.
