Solar inverter



  • The Solar Inverter ways to incorporate solar energy into your home.
  • one of the first things you knowing that the electricity created by solar panels
  • Also called direct current electricity or DC.
  • The power that is stored in the batteries of a solar system is also DC.
  • While this type of electricity is used by many appliances and machines
  • it is not what is used in homes.


  • The power of a solar panel to supplement or replace the electricity that would traditionally come from the grid
  • An inverter is needed to change the electricity generated by the DC to AC or alternating current panel.
  • Therefore it is necessary that you know how a solar inverter works outside the network.
  • There are many types of inverters available.
  • All perform the same basic function of converting the power from DC to AC,
  • For starters, the inverters used in a solar system in the network are simply used
  •  Convert the DC power that enters the solar panel into AC
  • Off-grid solar systems involve solar panels and battery storage
  • so energy can reach the home from any of these two sources at any given time
  • depending on the solar situation.
  •  several inverters may be necessary
  • such as an inverter connected to the network or pure sine wave inverters as well as a charge controller.


  1. Solar Inverter
  2. Micro Inverter

Solar Inverter

  • A Solar battery inverter would handle the energy that reaches the house from the battery source.
  • Also usually responsible for managing the charging and discharging of the battery
  • The difference between the two has to do with the way solar panels are arranged within the solar system.
  •  The DC power generated by the chain comes in a single connection from the end of the line to the solar inverter.
  • At this point, the solar inverter converts the DC power into AC power and sends it for use in the home.

Micro Inverter

  • The second form of the solar inverter is the micro inverter.
  • usually in the back,
  • Obviously, as the number of panels in a system increases,
  • the number of micro inverters needed increases by the same amount.
  • The AC power now flows from the individual panels to the home control panel for use.
  • Although it may seem more convenient and cost effective to use a single chain inverter in a system that uses multiple panels,
  • it may actually be better to use micro inverters in each panel for several reasons.
  • as it travels along the chain and the load placed on each inverter does not risk overwhelming it,
  • while a chain configuration is a bit more risky
  • The use of micro inverters is also useful if there is a malfunction in the panel or in the inverter.
  • In a string system, this could affect the whole group and make diagnosis difficult,
  • but in a system that uses strictly micro inverters,
  • it is easier to diagnose the problem and replace the defective part without altering the general configuration.


  • Just make a quick dive into basic electrical engineering to understand what is happening here.
  • As we have established, the power generated by solar panels is DC while the power that our homes use is CA.
  • The characteristic difference between these two is that the current of electricity
  •  Direct current goes in a single constant direction while the current of electricity in the AC supply changes from one direction to the other many times per second.


  • Think of DC as a constant stream of electrons entering while
  • AC is more like a line of electrons running in its place.
  •  The current inside the inverter starts to rise and fall instead of moving in a straight line.
  • Then it goes out the other end of the inverter on an AC wave.
  • There are many types of inverters that produce different AC outputs,
  • from soft ware to square wave, and the voltage they can handle also varies,
  • so it is important to research and get the right inverter for your system.
  • The inverters are also not 100% efficient, since they require a little power to operate,
