Hithium PCS compatibility story

Top inverter suppliers confirm BESS manufacturer Hithium’s compatibility

Press release

  • SMA, Power Electronics, Delta Electronics and other top brands confirm technical compatability with Hithium cells
  • High efficient, liquid cooled systems up to 1.500V have been assessed
  • Includes PCS for both IEC and UL versions

Munich, August 8, 2023 – Stationary battery manufacturer Hithium has demonstrated technical compatibility with major suppliers of power control systems (PCS) or bidirectional inverters. As a producer of cells, battery modules, up to full DC-side solutions, Hithium teams up with PCS suppliers on systems and projects. The manufacturer has worked with a range of inverter-makers to confirm that the company’s battery products match well with their products’ important technical parameters, including DC input range and maximum short circuit current.

Hithium confirmed compatibility with brands from SMA, Gamesa, and Delta Electronics, to IngeTeam, Power Electronics, and Sineng Electric. The assessments look at PCS for both IEC and UL versions. The PCS are compatible with Hithium’s top liquid cooled container solutions up to 1.500B DC based on its own cells and battery modules.

Winfried Wahl, Hithium Germany Senior Director Product Management, said, “The determination of compatibility allows customers and investors to pre-select matching PCS for their projects. Projects still of course need detailed design planning and to ensure smooth communication between energy management systems, BESS, and the PCS. This confirmation from major suppliers is nonetheless a crucial step, following our European market entry in June, toward delivering clear, transparent product information.”
