A hybrid inverter is an upgrade based on a solar inverter. It contains the functionality of a solar inverter that converts DC to AC and also adds built-in solar controllers like MPPT or PWM types. So, to be precise, a hybrid inverter is a solar inverter with a built-in charge controller. It can also be a combination of off-grid and grid-tied inverters in one machine with the same description you would call a hybrid inverter.
Next we will introduce the five working modes of the hybrid solar inverter.
Photovoltaic high power mode
That is to say, the photovoltaic power generation exceeds the power of the home load and the battery energy storage power, and the excess power will be sent back to the grid in reverse. If you don't want to have reverse power, you can set the inverter to automatically reduce the photovoltaic power in this case, or increase the battery capacity.
Photovoltaic low power mode
When the photovoltaic power is lower than the load power at home, the battery will release part of the power. If the photovoltaic power and battery discharge power are still less than the load power at home, the grid will automatically supplement the power.
No photovoltaic power mode
For example, at night, when there is no sun, all power is provided by the battery. If the battery power is less than the load power in the home, the grid will automatically supplement the lack of power.
Natural disasters or accidents cause power outages. As long as the battery still has power, the inverter will provide emergency backup power, which is very suitable for places where disasters are frequent or power outages are frequent.
User setting mode
For example, in some places, the electricity bill is particularly cheap at a certain time of the night. At this time, you can set the machine to automatically draw electricity from the grid, and use it or sell it to the grid company when the electricity bill is particularly expensive. It can also be used in some places where there are frequent power outages, as long as there is electricity, the battery will be charged immediately, and electricity will be available when the power goes out.
Let's just say, this is a very good solution for distributed energy and smart grids, especially in many places where there are too many people to build large power grids. It can allow more people to use green, low-carbon, environmentally friendly, safe and cheap renewable energy, greatly reduce the demand for fossil energy, and let the people in these war-torn energy producing areas live a peaceful life.
