What are Solar Inverters?


A solar inverter, or PV inverter, converts the variable direct current output of a photovoltaic (PV) solar panel into a utility frequency alternating current that can be fed into a commercial electrical grid or used by a local, off-grid electrical network. It is a critical component in a photovoltaic system, allowing the use of ordinary commercial appliances. Solar inverters have special functions adapted for use with photovoltaic arrays, including maximum power point tracking and anti-islanding protection. Your decision of Inverter is the most significant choice you make when purchasing a solar system. Your panels will produce the amount of watts they have been rated at eg: 270W produces 270 watts or 330W will produce 330 watts, however it is how efficiently and reliably the inverter changes those watts from direct current DC into alternating current AC, the power which you use run your appliances, lights and other equipment in your home.
