Solar-ready distribution transformers

Transformers designed to match solar inverters

ABB offers pre-designed
distribution transformers
to meet leading inverter
manufacturers’ requirements
resulting in significantly
reduced lead times and
extended transformer life.

An improved approach Situation analysis/background:

With market constraints in mind, ABB has developed Today‘s solar developers, contractors, and EPCs
distribution transformers for the solar industry that are facing long approval times for funding and

Energy efficient designs based on the ABB PVS980

power and voltage ratings meet all current regula-
tions and standards. Liquid-filled transformers
can be manufactured and tested with mineral oil
or ­e ster fluids (natural or synthetic) based on
your ­requirements.
Benefits of ABB‘s solar-ready transformers Questions for consideration:
• Fit for purpose • Do you have less time to plan your solar project?
• Standard designs in your hands quickly • Are you experiencing performance issues with
• Short lead times to provide quick planning ­distribution transformers in solar applications?
and ­execution of projects • Are you under a time crunch to get your farms
• Faster return on investment (ROI) built and projects executed?
• Quick pricing to reduce the project planning cycle • Do you custom design the transformers
for each project?
Product features • What type of inverters are you using?
• Solar transformer matched to ABB PVS980 • How could you benefit from deliveries in half

• HV (kV): 20, 22, 33, 34.5
• LV (V): 600, 630, 660
• Mineral oil or ester fluids (natural or synthetic)
• 48 design options with low loss/high loss
­combinations for IEC and ANSI markets
• Expedited delivery

ABB as your competitive edge

Pre-designed and optimized transformers from
ABB are available to match the solar industry’s
needs. Standardized designs provide a proven solu-
tion with lower risks. Each transformer is matched
for your inverter and the unique solar environment.
The time required from order to delivery of these
specialized units is significantly reduced using ABB’s
technology and extensive transformer experience.
