Meet Ideal Power’s new power conversion system: Stabiliti

Ideal PowerIdeal Power Inc. always has something innovative up its sleeve. We’ve dove into some of its cool concepts before (like this one). The latest from the power conversion company is the Stabiliti Series — a versatile, grid resilient 30-kW advanced power conversion system (PCS).

The Stabiliti Series will replace Ideal Power’s legacy 30B3 and IBC-30 product lines and is available in two versions; a two-port AC-DC bi-directional PCS and a multi-port AC-DC-DC bi-directional PCS.

Neat – tell me more

Stabiliti is the next generation of Ideal Power’s patented Power Packet Switching Architecture (PPSA) technology and incorporates numerous new features and benefits for commercial and industrial (C&I) customers. Ideal Power is currently taking orders for delivery beginning in February 2017.

Key features of the Stabiliti include built-in galvanic isolation, bi-directional power flows on both DC and AC ports with seamless transfer available between its grid-tied and grid-forming modes, and the ability to be paralleled in microgrid mode, enabling larger installations of multiple units for backup power applications.

Stabiliti is software-configurable with power grids around the world in one hardware platform, can integrate multiple sources of generation and storage simultaneously, facilitates EV fast charging with buffer batteries, and enables peak shaving and demand management applications – all in one box.

Have you checked out our YouTube page?

We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.

Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.

We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
