A green and reliable power source, even without a utility grid. With stand-alone solar solutions, you can always cover your entire electricity demands and become independent from electric utility companies.
A hybrid inverter converts direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC) is known as a power inverter or inverter. It does not produce any power. The power is provided by the DC source such as batteries and rectifiers. The specific device or circuitry determines the input voltage, output voltage and frequency, and overall power handling. Usually, batteries store energy in direct current, but the home appliances we use need alternating current, which makes an inverter the essential component in the solar system.
Many people believe an off grid solar system can be easily put together. This may be true in the case of a small caravan or cabin. But in reality, larger off grid systems with battery backup used for homes and businesses need to be carefully designed by an experienced solar installer or system designer.
You have many factors to consider before deciding on your new solar offgrid system.
Firstly, what amount of usable energy do I require? You will need to consider what different types of appliances do I need to power? High energy usage devices could range from a pool pump, air conditioner, electric over and conventional kettle. Which of these high wattage devices could be used at the same time?
Hybrid string inverters are best for solar systems that receive full sun and have panels mounted in one large grouping. However, string inverters convert the total energy based on the lowest performing panel so it’s important that all panels are behaving at similar levels to maintain optimum output.
