Solar inverter is the brain of the solar system, although its basic role is to convert DC electricity comes from solar panels to usable AC electricity, now it takes the responsibility to monitor and control the whole solar system and provides important technical info required for solar system operation and maintenance crews to fix system errors, in addition to that it takes responsibility to manage batteries system incase of its presence in the solar system.
Solar inverter is the heart of the solar plant, it represents the main equipment that converts DC output from solar panels to AC electricity required to run all our appliances/machines/equipment. In addition, it takes the responsibility of monitoring and controlling the PV array system.
Usually at the beginning of the day, solar inverter AC output power is low, then it increases gradually with the increasing of the sun light reaching its max at noon time (2-3pm), then it reduces gradually and reaches its lowest value at the end of the day with the sun light absence. So, it’s like a bell curve.
What is the power inverter typical inputs?
Of course, it is DC supply voltage, but with different values, it may be small like 12V DC, 24V DC, 48V DC, or medium like 200V DC, 450V or high like hundreds of thousands of voltages. In all cases the DC supply must be stable and capable of supplying requested power demand to the AC load in addition to some very small power loss (inefficacies).
