Solar inverters are an essential part of any solar power system. Without an inverter, solar panels would be unable to generate usable electricity. Inverters take the energy captured by solar panels and convert it into clean, usable electricity. This makes solar power systems an incredibly efficient way to generate electricity.

How does a solar inverter work?

A solar inverter is a device that changes the direct current (DC) output of a photovoltaic (PV) system into an alternating current (AC) that be used by your home, business or fed into the electrical grid. Solar inverters have one or more PV panels connected to them, and they convert the DC power generated by the PV panels into AC power.

Solar inverters are essential for PV systems that are connected to the electrical grid, because the grid only accepts AC power. Solar inverters must also be designed to match the specific PV system in which they will be used in. For example, a string inverter is typically used with a system that has multiple PV panels connected in series (commonly referred to as a “string” of panels).

The components of a solar inverter

The basic components of a solar inverter are:

  • Monitoring of solar production
  • Maximum power point tracking (MPPT): this ensures that the solar cells are operating at their maximum power output
  • ¬†Converting the Direct Current in Alternating Current

Solar inverters are an essential part of solar power systems, and they come in a variety of types to suit different needs.

Solar inverters are an essential part of solar power systems, and they come in a variety of types to suit different needs. A solar inverter converts the DC electricity from the solar panels into AC electricity that can be used by household appliances. There are 2 main types of solar inverters: string and microinverters. String inverters are the most common and are typically used in the majority of systems. Microinverters are small and work independently, so they are a good choice for systems with shading issues or multiple roof faces.
