At the time of power crisis, inverter plays a major role as it provides alternative power supply. Solar inverter has gained the most popularity as we can take solar technology as one of the best alternative source of power supply.
The main function of a solar inverter is as same as any other power inverter i.e. to convert direct current (DC) which is created by solar panels to alternating current (AC). This type of inverter can be used both residential and official purpose.
Generally there are three sorts of solar inverter:
During power loss, this type of inverter turns off automatically and thus provides total safety. In this type of inverter, the current is accumulated through solar panels and preserved in the inverter battery for absorption. It can be sold to any power company when it is not utilized and this way you can prevent the wastage of energy.
Stand Alone Solar inverter:
This type of inverter has the same function of converting direct current (DC) which is created by some kinds of renewable energy sources like: solar panels, small wind turbines, hydro turbines etc. into alternating current (AC). Stand alone inverter is used in domestic purpose as well as in small industrial buildings as a power backup source.
A 100 watt Stand alone solar inverter has the ability to power a notebook or a laptop whereas a 10 kilowatt solar inverter has the ability to power independently small offices or a whole house.
Battery backup Solar inverter:
This type of inverter picks the energy from the batteries. Through an onboard charger, this inverter can manage the energy charge it gets from the batteries. It supplies alternating current (AC) to some selected areas where energy is required at the time of power outage. With the help of anti-islanding protection this inverter needs to be installed. A Battery backup solar inverter can be ideally used for commercial needs and it can save expenses which is its high utility.
