For many people, the idea of living solely on solar energy is an exciting prospect. The truth is that there are plenty of homes in America that produce more than enough electricity through their own solar panels to power everything they need.
A Solar Electric Photovoltaic (PV) System converts sunlight into electricity. It consists of an array of solar panels, mounting structure, one or more inverters for converting AC to DC and monitoring equipment. The system can be connected to the utility grid (grid-tie) or independent (off-grid), in which case batteries are used.
Inverters are central to online and hybrid PV systems and we aim to inspire budding engineers for a better more sustainable world. We will introduce… Read More »What Is A Solar Inverter And How Does It Work?
