Zero Export Controller/ Device
What does it mean by Zero Export Controller?
It simply means “No export power to the Grid”
The purpose of a zero export controller is to ensure that no excess power is fed back into the grid. Instead, the generated solar energy is utilized to power the local load, with voltage and current being monitored and limited according to the load requirements. By effectively managing the energy flow, the zero export controller enables the inverter to generate an equal or lesser amount of energy than the load demands.
In certain regions like India, where net metering is required, there can be a significant delay of 6-8 months in obtaining the necessary approvals and installations from the local DISCOM (distribution company). In such cases, using a zero export controller becomes highly beneficial. This is because the presence of a unidirectional meter on-site results in unnecessary costs for the client due to the generation of excess unused energy. By implementing a zero export controller, clients can avoid these additional expenses by ensuring that no surplus energy is sent back to the grid.
Why choose SuryaLogix Zero Export Device/ Controller?
Specifications & Features
The controller is designed to prevent the back feeding of excess solar energy into the grid, particularly in situations where net metering approval is pending. Its primary purpose is to ensure that the solar energy generated by the system is consumed locally rather than exported back to the grid.
One of the notable advantages of using a controller is its effectiveness during periods of low loads, such as during breaks or holidays when the energy demand is reduced. By regulating the energy flow, the controller helps to optimize the utilization of the generated solar power.
Moreover, the zero export controller offers advanced capabilities, including the ability to transmit data to multiple third-party portals through FTP and API. This facilitates efficient monitoring and analysis of energy generation and consumption. The controller also features inbuilt storage, which can be expanded as needed.
Operating in conjunction with the inverter, the zero export controller issues commands to manage the flow of energy. It calculates the total load requirement by continuously monitoring the grid consumption and solar generation, ensuring that the energy consumed from the grid is balanced with the solar energy production.
By effectively maximizing the use of green energy, the no export controller contributes to the overall goal of reducing reliance on non-renewable energy sources. This is achieved by intelligently regulating the energy flow and preventing excess solar power from being fed back into the grid.
The no export controller integrates essential functionalities into a single device, combining a power analyzer, datalogger, and controller. Its primary function is to ensure that the solar system operates in a manner that prevents any feed-in of energy into the grid, safeguarding compliance with local regulations and grid requirements.
