It is the law in Germany that it must be possible to limit the power made available by the PV system at the feed-in point either to 70% of the maximum generator power or, if required, to another percentage defined by a grid operator. The PV feed-in capacity is usually restricted by a ripple control receiver.

However, to enable you to utilise the full power of your photovoltaic system, we offer the PIKO BA Sensor for systems up to 30 kW as an attractively priced alternative to the ripple control receiver or a fixed limitation to a particular percentage.

The PIKO BA Sensor is used, amongst other things, to determine the power actually consumed within the home and to visualise it in the KOSTAL (PIKO) Solar Portal. The inverter's smart active power control function takes this self-consumption into account and adds it to the power generated by the inverter (up to 30% max.) until the set limitation threshold (70%) is reached at the network node.

So, the PIKO BA Sensor allows the inverter to regulate its output power dynamically, rather than sticking to a rigid default setting. If you have a battery storage system, you are also in a position to store the energy not currently being consumed and to use it later for self-consumption. The energy generated can therefore be distributed ideally between the home, battery and public grid, enabling you to exploit your solar power to the full.
