    Single-phase hybrid inverter Sofar Solar HYD5000-EP

    Single-phase hybrid inverter - the perfect solution to enable energy storage in your PV installation with on-grid and off-grid functions.

    The HYD 3000...6000-EP is the new multi-talented hybrid inverter for solar and storage applications. During grid failures, it can provide up to 5 kW of emergency power supply (EPS) in 10 ms thanks to its integrated EPS port. The integrated energy management system features several user-friendly modes, optimizing the user experience, including an automatic self-use mode. Users can also define different time and/or date ranges, or rules for the day of the week. All modes can be easily configured on the large LCD display.

    A WiFi key is supplied with the inverter, for easy connection to the Sofar monitoring portal.

    High efficiency

    - Maximum efficiency of 99.9%.
    - Precise real-time MPPT algorithm for maximum utilization
    - Wide input voltage operating range

    Flexible configuration

    The inverter works with lead (GEL) or lithium batteries.

    Use in back-up mode

    An inverter can be used in "back-up" mode, without the need for photovoltaic panels. In this mode, the UPS assumes the role of an inverter to protect your equipment from grid interruptions. As a result, an inverter protects computers and audiovisual equipment, or any other sensitive load, by providing a constant flow of electrical current. It guarantees a power supply with a switchover time of less than 10 ms, thanks to the EPS function.

    Hybrid mode operation

    The inverter draws power from the grid only when the battery is depleted and solar energy is not producing enough to meet consumption.

    All in one. Flexible, cost-effective system solution

    - Free choice of location thanks to IP65 rating
    - Plug & Play" connection for easy installation and maintenance
    - Interface selection - Wi-Fi / RS485 /GPRS
    - LCD + LED display
    - Integrated zero export function

    Low maintenance costs

    - Detachable lid for easy installation

    Hybrid Inverters: Operating modes

    Self-use mode

    1. If PV production matches consumption, the inverter neither charges nor discharges the battery.
    2. If PV production exceeds consumption, surplus energy is stored in the battery.
    3. If the battery is full or at maximum charging capacity, surplus energy is exported to the grid
    4. .
    5. If PV production is lower than consumption, the battery is discharged to supply energy to loads.
    6. If user energy consumption exceeds PV production, and battery capacity is unable to compensate, the inverter will import energy from the grid.
    7. Supply priority: PV > Battery > Grid
    8. Consumption priority: Loads > Battery > Grid

    Self-use Mode

    Time-of-Use Mode:

    1. The user can define up to four rules on when the battery should be charged.
    2. Each rule can be activated or deactivated and includes time of day, percentage of battery charge (SOC), charging power, efficiency date and days of the week
    3. .

    Time-of-Use Mode

    Timing Mode.

    1. The user can define fixed times of the day to charge or discharge the battery with a given power.
    2. Up to four rules can be defined, and each rule can be activated or deactivated separately for charging or discharging
    3. .

    Timing Mode

    Passive Mode.

    1. Intended for systems with external energy management systems using the Modbus RTU protocol to control the inverter.
    2. If the battery is fully charged or at its maximum charging power, PV production is reduced by adjusting the maximum power point (MPPT).
    3. If PV production is lower than consumption, the battery supplies the loads
    4. .

    EPS Mode (EPS Mode).

    1. When this mode is activated, the inverter supplies energy to loads when it is off-grid, for example when there is no connection to the public grid or during power failures.
    2. If PV production exceeds consumption, the surplus is stored in the battery
    3. .

    EPS Mode

    These modes allow the user to flexibly manage how energy is stored and used, optimizing the use of batteries and solar power generation.
