Grid Tie Inverter 3 Phase
a Grid Tie Inverter GT500E - 3 phase

Designed for European grid-connected PV installations, the GT500E is a 500kW three-phase inverter that meets all applicable CE requirements.

Product Info | Specifications | Datasheet


The Xantrex GT500E Grid Tie Inverter is based on a reliable platform that is used in grid-connect photovoltaic and wind turbine applications in North America and Europe. Easy to install and operate, the GT500E automates start up, and shut down. It incorporates advanced Maximum Power Point Tracking Technology to maximize the energy harvested from a PV array. To minimize power losses during the conversion process, the inverter’s switching technology uses insulated gate bi-polar
transistors. Multiple inverters can be paralleled for large power installations. Designed for European PV installations, the GT500E meets all applicable CE requirements.


  • Digital Signal Processor (DSP) based controls with self-diagnostics and LCD for display of operating status
  • Inverter shut off and disconnects
  • Over- and under-voltage and frequency protection, shutting down the inverter
  • Anti-islanding protection - prevents back-feeding inverter-generated power to the grid in the event of a utility outage
  • User definable power tracking allows the user to match the inverter to the array, as well as to adjust delay periods to customize system shutdown sequences
  • Graphical user interface software for real time communications, monitoring, and control
  • Remote monitoring via telephone modem or web server
  • Faults notification via modem
  • Data acquisition and logging
  • Isolation protection
  • DC and AC over voltage protection
