Magellan Solar Gate Approved

Magellan Solar Gate Approved

The Magellan Power Solar Gate has been added to the approved Zero-Export Limiter Device List by Power and Water Corp in the Northern Territory.

The list contains devices from a technical perspective that are capable of achieving zero-export for PV systems. Some of these devices offer protection functions similar to the internal protection found within a CEC approved inverter.

The Magellan Power Solar Gate is an export limiter device which controls and prevents the export of solar
power to the grid.

In a typical application, the Solar Gate ascertains the power requirement of the local load and adjusts the solar power through controlling the PV inverter so that only a pre-set amount or zero amount of power is injected into the grid, thereby ensuring that most or all of the generated power is available for the local load.

The functions the Solar Gate has been approved for include reverse power limit, under voltage, over voltage, under and over frequency, islanding period and auto-sychronisation among others.

Brookfield Rail’s Merredin office regularly sources power chargers from Magellan Power, and we always find it an easy process for new purchases and repairs. Their Sales & Repair Manager Shijo is prompt with responses to our queries, and on one occasion travelled to Merredin to meet with us, which we found extremely helpful.
