Classification of solar inverters
139 2023-05-10
An inverter is a device that converts direct current generated by photovoltaic power generation into alternating current. Photovoltaic inverters are one of the important system balances in photovoltaic array systems and can be used in conjunction with general AC powered equipment. The inverter manufacturer will provide a detailed introduction below:
Independent inverter: used in an independent system, where the photovoltaic array charges the battery and the inverter uses the DC voltage of the battery as the energy source. Many independent inverters also integrate battery chargers, which can be charged with AC power. Generally, this type of inverter does not come into contact with the power grid, so it does not require islanding protection function.
Grid connected inverter: The output voltage of the inverter can be sent back to a commercial AC power supply, so the output sine wave needs to be the same as the phase, frequency, and voltage of the power supply. The grid connected inverter will have a safety design, and if not connected to the power supply, it will automatically turn off the output. If the power grid trips, the grid connected inverter has no backup power supply function.
Backup battery inverter: A special type of inverter that uses a battery as its power source and is paired with a battery charger to charge the battery. If there is too much power, it will be recharged to the AC power supply. This type of inverter can provide AC power to the specified load when the power grid trips, so it needs to have an island effect protection function.
