Installation of the inverter and enclosure design
Cooling system types for inverter panel
From the panel that contains the inverter, the heat of the inverter and other equipment (transformers, lamps, resistors, etc.)
and the incoming heat such as direct sunlight must be dissipated to keep the in-panel temperature lower than the permissible
temperatures of the in-panel equipment including the inverter.
The cooling systems are classified as follows in terms of the cooling calculation method.
1) Cooling by natural heat dissipation from the enclosure surface (totally enclosed type)
2) Cooling by heat sink (aluminum fin, etc.)
3) Cooling by ventilation (forced ventilation type, pipe ventilation type)
4) Cooling by heat exchanger or cooler (heat pipe, cooler, etc.)
(enclosed, open type)
(totally enclosed type)
Low in cost and generally used, but the panel size increases
as the inverter capacity increases. For relatively small
Being a totally enclosed type, the most appropriate for hostile
environment having dust, dirt, oil mist, etc. The panel size
increases depending on the inverter capacity.
Having restrictions on the heatsink mounting position and
area, and designed for relative small capacities.
For general indoor installation. Appropriate for panel
downsizing and cost reduction, and often used.
Totally enclosed type for panel downsizing.
