The inverter is technologically the most important component in any solar power system. it converts the direct current generated in photovoltaic cells into alternating current suitable for the grid. In addition, it is an intelligent system manager, responsible for yield monitoring and grid management. Solar inverters are characterized by a particularly high efficiency.
There are different types of Solar Inverters based on application required
ON GRID INVERTERS
On-grid system is solar generation system where Solar PV system is connected directly to the Grid. On-Grid Inverters are solar inverters that only generate power when the grid is available. They must connect to the grid to function. On-grid systems are simplest systems and the most cost-effective to install. These systems will pay for themselves by offsetting utility bills in 3-5 yrs. There are different types of on-grid inverter
OFF GRID/HYBRID INVERTERS
These inverters allow you to store your solar power in batteries for use when the power grid goes down or if you are not on the grid. These are the best solution for remote areas where there is no grid. Hybrid inverters provide power to offset the grid power whenever the sun is shining and will even send excess power to the grid for credit for later use.sample ABB, SMA, Huawei
