ABB solar inverters for photovoltaic systems
Enabling the power of the sun

Sunlight leads the way

All renewable energies are derived in one form or another from the sun. The sun itself has enormous potential to become the most dominant direct source of all renewable energies. It provides, within three days into earth‘s atmosphere, as much energy as that contained by all of the known fossil fuel reserves underground. It has been a source of renewable energy for millions of years and now looks set to play a leading role in providing energy to society for the foreseeable future.

Comprehensive solar inverter offering

The ABB solar inverter utilizes over 40 years of advances in inverter and power converter technology that has contributed to ABB becoming the world leader in frequency converters and one of the biggest suppliers of wind turbine converters.

Photovoltaic power plants – cost effectiveness

In large photovoltaic (PV) power plants - from 1 megawatt (MW) and above - PV modules are typically mounted, at ground level, on fixed tilted structures facing the sun or onto tracking devices. These land-based plants offer the most cost effective solution for PV based solar energy production by feeding electricity directly to the medium voltage (MV) grid.

Strong expertise with global presence

Experience since the early 1970’s in inverter and power converter technology has contributed to ABB becoming the world leader in frequency converters manufacturing and life cycle services. The ABB solar inverters are supported through a global network of service engineers on-site and through authorized service workshops.

The services offered for ABB solar inverters span the entire value chain of the product from pre-purchase to replacement and recycling. Throughout this value chain, ABB provides training, technical support and service contracts. With strong expertise, ABB ensures that its customers always gain the maximum return on their investment.

DC motors - Type DMI

We provide motors and generators, services and expertise to save energy and improve customers’ processes over the total life cycle of our products, and beyond.

Products display



DMI motors comply with the re quirements of the international standard IEC Publ. 60034-1. Further references to standards can be found in the re spec tive chapter in this catalogue. Motors complying with other standards can be supplied on request.
The DMI motor series is CE-marked according to EMC Directive 89/336/ EEC and Low Voltage Directive 73/23/ EEC and 93/68/EEC. This series is also certifi ed to be incorporated into machinery in accordance with the Machine Directive 89/392/EEC. The DMI motor series can as option be delivered according to CSA for voltages up to 750 V.

Environment impact

DMI is designed to give low environmental impact throughout its service life. This includes the manufacturing process, suppliers, use by customers and recycling.

Location of cooling equip ment

Fans can be located on the right or left, or above DMI motors. Heat exchangers must not be mounted on the same side as the terminal box is located. The fans can be rotated 180°, but normally the filter should not face directly towards the terminal box. If not otherwise specified on the delivery order, the cooling equipment will/must always be installed so that the cooling air enters at the N-end of the DMI motor.

Mechanical design


The frame, main poles and interpoles are fully laminated. This ensures good commutation even during rapid current changes. The stator components are welded together in afixture, which both aligns and presses the plates together to form a solid unit. The square shape of the DMI-motor allows simple installation of accessories and air ducts and large openings for inspection.

Stator windings

The stator windings are of dual coat type-insulated copper wire. The stator is im preg nat ed to make the windings sturdy and mois ture resistant. The connections are brazed or crimped to withstand overloads.

Compensating winding

Frame sizes DMI 180-225 have no compensating winding. Frame sizes DMI 250-280 are available with two different designs, uncompensated or with compensating winding, reaching different performance. Frame sizes DMI 315 and 400 are equipped with compensation winding.


The armature core consists of discs of high grade insulated electroplates and incorporates a large number of cooling ducts. The core package is pressed onto the armature shaft with a high interference fi t to ensure torque transfer.

Armature winding

The armature winding is of dual coat type-insulated copper. The copper coils are placed in enveloping slot insulation and held in the slots by glass fibre tape.

Electrical design


Rating data corresponds to class H utilization.
Base speed
The rated motor speed at rated output, rated voltage, full excitation and normal operating temperature. The tolerance for standard motors with shunt winding is for speed and torque ± 5 %.
Field weakening range
The ratio of the maximum electrical speed to the base speed. Permissible fi eld weak en ing range is max 1:3 for uncompensated motors. Higher fi eld weak en ing values can be sup plied on request. Field weakening range for motors with compensating wind ing is max 1:5.


The motors are normally designed for an excitation voltage of 310 V.

Impulse excitation

When the excitation voltage is supplied from a converter, a fi eld forcing voltage of up to 1.5 times the rated value may be applied to a maximum of 500 V. Higher fi eld forcing on request.
