WHAT IS A SOLAR INVERTER?

Solar inverter converts DC Current into AC Current (vice-versa) that can power a home or a commercial property where a solar system is installed.

HOW DO SOLAR INVERTERS WORK?

With a central or ‘string’ inverter, DC electricity is generated by solar panels and fed into the inverter. It then flips or “inverts” this power into AC electricity so it can be used to power your home.

The inverter also controls the voltage of the solar system to extract maximum power available (referred to as “maximum power point tracking” or MPPT) and allows one to monitor the solar system’s performance.

TYPES OF SOLAR INVERTERS

STRING INVERTERS

These are typical inverters where every panel is connected together in a ‘string’, and a series of strings are further connected into the central inverter.

POWER OPTIMISERS

These are placed with solar panels to fix the voltage of DC electricity before it is transferred to the string inverter. It is often used to improve efficiency of a solar system in case of shading on roof.

MICROINVERTERS

Microinverters are a series of small inverters that convert DC electricity to AC from each solar panel directly from the source.

FAQs

A solar inverter should have industry-standard components and proper circuit structure.

Solar inverters should have high efficiency.

Never install a solar inverter by yourself. Our CEC-accredited solar technicians will guide you through the entire installation process and explain the working of each component properly.

MPPT stands for Maximum Power Point Tracking and is a circuit found within photovoltaic inverters. Its purpose is to maximise energy efficiency of solar panels connected with an inverter.

To extend the life of solar inverters, always ensure that it is installed in a well-ventilated space, so its efficiency is not affected by overheating.

Always check with your solar installer about the current parameters and input voltage as any mismatch can affect inverter efficiency.

Make sure that the surrounding area around the inverter is clean to ensure its longevity.
