2017.01.25Explaining all the basics of inverters; how they work, what different type there are, which are suited for you project, etc.
Inverters are an essential component to any piece of solar energy technology and are often considered to be the brains of a system, regardless of whether is a home system or part of a major solar power plant. Photovoltaic technology invariably produces DC electricity and, in most cases, conversion to a suitable AC voltage is required. The primary function of an inverter is to convert the direct current (DC) output into alternating current (AC). The choice of a suitable inverter for use in any solar plant or residential installation will depend on many things, including the system power, DC and AC voltage and the module types and orientation. A photovoltaic system inverter needs to be of a suitably high quality, and some of the leading manufacturers include SMA, Fronius, Kaco, Samil Power, Delta and Solar Edge.
