What is a Solar Inverter? 

There are several types of solar inverters available on the market, including string inverters, microinverters, and central inverters. String inverters are the most common type and are typically used in large solar energy systems. They are installed near the panels and convert the DC electricity from all of the panels in a series, or string, into AC electricity. Microinverters, on the other hand, are installed on each individual panel and convert the DC electricity from that panel into AC electricity. This allows for more flexibility and better performance, as each panel can be optimized individually. Central inverters are similar to string inverters, but are used in large, utility-scale solar energy systems and are often located in a separate location from the panels.

In addition to converting DC electricity into AC electricity, solar inverters also perform other important functions, such as monitoring the performance of the solar panels and ensuring that they are operating at their maximum efficiency. They also provide protection for the solar energy system, shutting down the system in the event of an issue or malfunction to prevent damage. Solar inverters are a critical component of any solar energy system and play a vital role in converting solar energy into usable electricity.

What Do Solar Inverters Do?

Solar inverters play a crucial role in the functioning of a solar power system. They are responsible for converting the direct current (DC) electricity produced by the solar panels into alternating current (AC) electricity that can be used in homes and businesses.

In addition to their primary function of inverting DC to AC electricity, solar inverters also have a number of other important functions. One of these is monitoring the voltage of the solar array and adjusting the power output accordingly. This allows the system to optimize its energy production and ensure that it is operating at peak efficiency.

Smart inverters, as mentioned in the question, have advanced software that allows them to perform additional functions such as grid support. These inverters can communicate with the grid and perform tasks such as maintaining voltage and frequency stability, as well as controlling power flow. This helps to improve the stability and reliability of the grid, especially in areas with a high penetration of solar power.

Solar inverters also have the ability to shut off in the event of an electrical arc, which is a dangerous situation that can occur due to material degradation or system aging. This is an important safety feature that helps to protect the system and prevent damage. Some inverters are more effective at detecting and shutting off in the event of an arc, and it is important to choose an inverter that has a good track record in this regard.
