SMA Windy Boy: Grid Tie Wind Turbines

SMA is known for its world class grid tie inverters for solar panels and is a very popular inverter that is trusted on many solar electric systems around the world. SMA Windy Boy product line offers a solution to grid tie small scale wind generators from their 700u model that can handle wind turbines that are rated a couple hundred watts to the Windy Boy 7000US which is the highest capacity grid tie wind power inverter offered by SMA. The SMA Windy Boy runs on the same technology as its sister inverter the SMA Sunny Boy, there is a special version of software on the Windy Boy’s Central Processing Unit (CPU) that allows the Windy Boy to be compatible with a wind turbine. The neat aspect of grid tie inverters is they use the grid as a battery, therefore it greatly simplifies the installation process, reduces overall maintenance, and reduces costs of installing wind or solar panels.

The world’s most efficent central inverter

SMA, according to a press release featured on has released information on their 250U central inverter for commercial scale projects. SMA is a leading inverter manufacturer, if you don’t know what an inverter does, it converts the DC electricity put out by solar panels into AC electricity which is what all our appliaces use. An inverter is a very important component of the overall system design, therefore a consumer must look into the efficency rate of the inverter when shopping for solar power. There are electric losses when DC electricity is converted to AC, therefore the higher the efficency on the inverter, the fast payback a customer will recieve on the system. The SMA 250U commerical inverter is the leading the industry in terms of efficency, which is CEC (california energy comission) rated at 97%! This inverter is UL listed and has an array of features that fit commerical solar power...
