What is an Inverter?
The inverter is the heart and security guard of a PV system.
It converts direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC), leads the electricity gained in the solar panels to where it is needed and protects all connected electric devices.
In a grid-tied system it synchronizes the PV system to the grid, whereas in a back-up system a special inverter is needed that is furthermore able to create a grid itself in case the public grid fails or doesn’t exist.
For households with only on phase or small PV systems.
For households with 3 phases, usually larger systems.
Inverter charger for back-up systems, that operate during load shedding.
A battery bank can be connected to this inverter.
For larger industrial systems and PV farms (>150 kWp)
