SMA Energy System Large Scale
Highly efficient hydrogen production with proven system technology
Green hydrogen production with SMA Power Conversion Solutions is the key to sustainable energy management of your hydrogen application.
The SMA Electrolyzer Converter comes in a fully integrated, containerized solution incl. medium-voltage transformer and switchgear. This provides highest efficiency on a system level, but also optimizes time and cost for installation.
Modular design enables flexible project sizing
Low OPEX due to very high converter and connected transformer efficiency
Based on a technology platform with >30 GW global track record
Integrated IGBT technology enables high grid compliance and a lean plant design without additional filters or compensation units
The broad DC voltage range of the SMA Electrolyzer Converter allows for compatibility with different electrolyzer technologies (Alkaline, PEM, SOEC).
SMA Electrolyzer Converter
The SMA Electrolyzer Converter converts the alternating current of the grid into electrolyzer-compliant direct current. The IGBT technology minimizes the influence on the grid and does not require any additional filter or compensation systems
The MVPS offers a turnkey medium voltage solution, analyzing the degradation of the cells of the electrolyzer and adjusting them automatically. Thus ensuring low-maintenance operation over the entire lifecycle of the electrolyzer.
The power grid provides alternating current (AC).
The SMA Electrolyzer Converter converts the alternating current from the power grid into direct current for the electrolyzer.
The electrolyser uses direct current and converts water into hydrogen and oxygen via a chemical reaction. The hydrogen can be further compressed to different pressure levels depending on the application.
The utility grid operates with alternating current generated by a PV system or other generating plants. The alternating current flows into the SMA Electrolyzer Converter.
The SMA Electrolyzer Converter converts the alternating current into direct current in a way that protects the grid. The electrolyzer then converts the direct current into hydrogen and oxygen in combination with water. The hydrogen can be used as a substance for a variety of applications or stored.
