ABB Launches Innovative Solar Drive for Sustainable Water Pumping Globally

ABB's new generation ACQ80 solar pump VSD has been engineered to meet this demand by supporting the water pumping installations to operate efficiently with a low carbon footprint, using clean energy from the sun.

A key feature of the ACQ80 is the built-in Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) logic combined with a wide input voltage range from 225 to 800 VDC. This enables the drive to operate the pump motor even if the power output from the solar panels drops during periods of low sunlight. This operational window is much wider than in conventional drives, allowing the maximum amount of water to be pumped over a range of operating conditions.
