AD-PVO 6000 GT


The photovoltaic optimizer AD-PVO 6000 monitors the feed of PV energy at the main connection to the building. If the feed conductor exceeds a limiting value, optimized via a PC by the customer, up to three independent load relays can be selected. These three load relays can be parameterized individually and can therefore switch loads either in phases or in steps. With these switching relays, electric consumers (i.e. electric heating rod in the water tank of the heating, air conditioning unit or heat pump), can be selected. With the AD-PVO 6000, the energy is implemented on site, it is not fed back into the public low-voltage network. Through the application of this device, PV units are optimised for personal consumption and the public network is relieved. Additionally, the AD-PCO 6000 has an error-message LED and an integral error message relay, via which error messages (i.e. permanent failure of the feed) can be indicated outside the distributer cabinet or can be signalled acoustically. It is recommended to mount the AD-PVO 6000 directly after the counter of the energy supplier in the distributor cabinet, as measuring should be carried out as close as possible to the feed point. The device requires all three outer conductor voltages and the neutral conductor for its measuring. The AD-PVO 6000 measures the current via three external split core current transformer, which can be mounted space-saving (without separation) directly on the 3 phases after the counter. The photovoltaic optimizer receives the personal consumption energy from the measuring voltage L1. This way, no separate supply voltage must be connected.

Heat pump control
With the PV optimizer AD PVO 6000 heat pumps can be signaled that enough PV surplus exists.
Thus, the heat pump can raise their storage or flow temperature and increase the personal consumption.
The optimizer is compatible with many SG-Ready (Smart Grid Ready) enabled heat pumps. The SG-Ready logo can be found on your heat pump.
The SG-ready interface is designed in in most cases as a contact input therefore, the overload relay of the PVO can be used easily as a signal for the temperature increase of the heat pump.
What is to be done at a SG-signal, it must be parameterized on the heat pump.
Through the three internal load relays, the heat pump can switch multiple states. It can be driven so several power levels.
