A solar inverter, or PV inverter, converts the variable direct current (DC) output of a photovoltaic (PV) solar panel into an alternating current (AC) that can be fed into any electrical appliances. Therefore, DC is modified into alternating current (AC) through a device called an inverter. AC electricity flows through every outlet of your home, powering everything from lamps to televisions.
TYPES OF INVERTERS
i) Grid-tied inverters
ii) Off- Grid inverters or Standalone inverters
iii) Hybrid inverters
Grid-tied inverters are those that are connected to the grid or “tied ” to it.
Grid-tied inverters are used in places where grid is stable like big cities and urban areas.
In case of residential areas: most of the electricity will be fed to the grid as very less is used during the daytime hrs.
In case of commercial areas: a lot of electricity is required during the day for powering lights, fans, A/Cs, computers etc. So, most of the electricity is self consumed and very less is fed.
They come in all capacities from 1Kw to 1MW and even more. The smaller capacity inverters are called Sting Inverter. These are use in small roof-top installations. The larger capacity inverters are called Central inverter. These are used in large roof-top installations.
Off-grid inverters or Standalone inverters are not connected to the Grid.
Off-Grid inverters are used in places where the grid is either unavailable or unreliable like farmhouse, telecom tower at remote locations or street light at remote locations. There are many places in India where the grid is unavailable. Such places get benefit from Off-grid inverters.
They come in small capacities of 1KW to 20KW. The main reason for this is that Solar PV is still quite expensive. So, nobody goes for bigger capacities. When the requirement is high, they prefer grid for electricity.
Hybrid inverters are those that work with grid when the Grid is available and off-grid mode when it is unavailable
Hybrid inverters are used in places where Grid is unreliable. Many Tier I and Tier II cities in India have an unreliable grid. These places have real usage of Hybrid inverters.
RANGE OF SOLAR INVERTERS
The range of solar inverters is suitable for the smallest residential home systems up to multi-megawatt power plants. We provide 500VA to 7.5KVA Sine Wave Solar Hybrid Inverters.
Solar inverters are light enough to handle and maintain.
They are economically beneficial.
It is easy to install.
These inverter are highly efficient and excellent energy harvest in a small modular design.
