Solar Panels collect Solar Energy from the sun and generate electricity in Direct Current(DC). As the appliances we use day to day require Alternating Current(AC), the Direct Current(DC) generated by the Solar Panels cannot be used straight away, it has to be converted to Alternating Current(AC). That’s where Solar Inverters come in.
What are Solar Inverters?
Solar Inverters are devices that convert the Direct Current(DC) generated by the Solar Panels to the Alternating Current(AC) of required power ratings. The output of the Solar Inverters can be fed directly to the commercial electrical grid for power distribution, or it can be used locally in domestic infrastructures. Solar Inverters are undoubtedly important components of Solar Power Systems, and choosing the right inverter type is crucial to make the best use of the generated Solar Energy.
What are the types of solar inverters and which one should you consider?
There are quite a few types of Solar Inverters available in the market. But the most commonly considered distinctions are of three types – On-grid Solar Inverters, Micro Solar Inverters, and Hybrid Solar Inverters.
On-Grid Solar Inverters
On-Grid Solar Inverters are also called Grid-tied Solar Inverters. As the name suggests, these types of Solar Inverters are connected to the grid. They are designed to quickly disconnect from the grid when the power goes down, and switch to the backup power system. They offer a high conversion efficiency of up to 98% and require very little startup voltage. Another advantage of On-Grid Solar Inverters is that they are fully upgradable. This type of Solar Inverters are available in different power ratings and you can easily choose the best one for your needs.

Micro Solar Inverters
Micro Solar Inverters are one of the most popular types of Solar Inverters. These Solar Inverters are connected directly to each Solar Panel in the Solar Power System. They offer Plug and Play type of installation and do not require any complex wiring, which makes it very easy to install. They offer multi-channel MPPT for complex systems and have very high efficiency. They are safer when compared to the other types of Solar Inverters and have better thermal dissipation.

Hybrid Solar Inverters
Hybrid Solar Inverters are multi-mode Solar Inverters that are most suitable for Solar Power Systems that include Battery packs. These Solar Inverters systematically store energy in the batteries when they are not in use. In situations where there is no power supply from the grid or when Solar Panels are not generating enough electricity, the Solar Inverter switches to Battery mode, ensuring an uninterrupted supply of power. Hybrid Solar Inverters are very reliable and offer excellent power management systems based on the demand of power utility.
They are available in wide input ranges and are very efficient.
