Solar Inverter

In order to run common size household appliances; Solar Inverter or PV Inverter is a device that converts Direct Current (DC) generate from solar panel to Alternating Current (AC). An average household’s power consumption ranges from 4000-5000Watts for a continuous supply, however, the inverter size ultimately depends on the number of appliance and their usage. For that, you are advised to make a list of all frequently used appliances and how long you use them. These details serve to settle on the inverter size as per your household’s maximum power needs.

Solar Inverter-Features

Solar Inverter has a number of features including:

  • Tracking Maximum Power Point
  • Reliability and Safety

Solar Inverter-Types

Micro-Inverter

  • This type of inverter works to convert direct current into alternating current right behind each solar module. Keeping its functional capacity in mind, installers design more cost-effective and easy to manage solar systems. With 15 years of warranty, this type of inverter is typically regarded as highly efficient and reliable to generate more power.

String-Inverter

  • A series wiring occurs in this type of solar panels which keeps low current but increased voltage in order to keep wire size smaller and overall wiring simpler. With 10-12 years warranty, string-inverter is the most likely used inverter nowadays.

Central-Inverter

  • Much easier to install as compared to small-string inverter; this is actually a string type inverter used commonly in large scale applications. Central-Inverter offers higher efficiency leading to quite a higher cost. This also comes with a 5 year warranty period that is extendable up to 20 years.
