Safe, robust, repeatable and reliable solar energy 

Using innovative technology, the latest fixed-string voltage innovation in photovoltaic (PV) solar systems introduces a significant advantage over commonly deployed traditional string inverters.  Before we look at the advantages offered, allow me to explain what is meant by a “fixed-string voltage”. By using a maximum power point tracking (MPPT) electronic device at each PV module, […]

Current-limiting MV fuses for indoor distribution networks

In today’s world of advanced electronically controlled protection devices, the use of fusegear in networks may seem archaic and out of place, but there is still a range of applications for this simple protection device, and fuses are used extensively in variety of applications in medium and high voltage industrial and distribution networks. Advanced  features […]
