Solar power is being used more frequently around the world for many different reasons. Solar inverters are the missing link between converting the DC electricity from the solar panels to the AC electricity you use in houses and businesses.
GEM Energy has a great site that does explain more in-depth about solar panels and solar inverters. It does also go into detail about the four different kinds of inverters and what type of situations each type works best for.
There are a few different kinds of inverters available today. As technology advances, we look forward to seeing what lies ahead in this department. Below you will find eight benefits all the inverters have in common.
The DC power from the solar panels has to be converted into AC power in order for the power to function. In order to do this, the DC power is sent through the inverter or inverters which switches it to AC power.
Maximum Solar Power
Keeping track of what your solar panels are doing can be difficult but the inverter is designed to keep track of the maximum power produced by your solar panels. The inverter is also able to boost efficiency since the maximum level is always changing with the forever changing temperatures and sunlight.
Solar inverters also have a great safety feature built into them. If the power grid is not attached to a house or business the right way then electricity will not be fed through the lines. The reason being is it could be dangerous for all parties involved.
Solar Panel Conditions
Monitoring the condition of your solar panels is also hard, especially if they are on your roof or in a location that is not the easiest to get too. The inverter has a built-in tracking system that will also monitor the condition of all your solar panels each and every day. The inverter can help you figure out exactly which one of your solar panels isn’t producing the amount of electricity that it is supposed to be. You are able to monitor everything about your solar system by Bluetooth, on its display board, or over wifi. The inverter is a necessary part of all solar panel setups.
