Solar Plant: Namibia

Size: 16 X 60KTL

Support: Export Limitation Configuration

Ø  See attached Picture 1

We offered our assistance to the client with export, since this is his first installation with Huawei inverter. All relevant support material was supplied to the Client (User manuals, quick guides, datasheets, and installation videos).

When visiting the site, we noticed that the inverter spacing was according to specification. The overall installation was very neat.

To export power to the grid in Namibia, you will need to get approval from the local power supplier(municipality). This process is very time consuming and may cause a lot of delays. The client opted to go for the export limitation option due to the fact that no special approval is needed.


This Function is available for Smart logger 1000 with version V100R001C00SPC115 or the latest version.

There are two ways of setting up a system for Export limitation, with DO control circuit breaker or without DO control circuit breaker. Please see the diagram below.

The client opted to go without the DO Circuit Breaker.

§  As soon as the power meter is connected to the smart logger, a 120-ohm resistor must be connected to the RS485 bus of the meter.

§  Manually adding the power meter

Add a power meter manually after correctly setting the RS485 parameters and Power Meter parameters. The power meter can only function after the manual installation is complete.
