Just like how solar panels function as the legs and arms of a solar system, a solar inverter is a valuable part in any solar energy system whether big or small. In fact, the most crucial and complicated process of power production happens within this box, also considered as the brain of your home’s solar system.
The brain of the system
If the solar panel’s main task is to collect and harvest sunlight, the inverter works as a brain that “inverts” the energy harvested by the panels into an energy that can be used inside your home.
The energy collected by your solar panels is called Direct Current or DC, while the appliances inside your home requires Alternating Current or AC to work. This is where the role of the inverter comes in because it inverts the energy harvested by your panels into energy that your home can use; and this energy can also be exported to the grid. Without the inverter, your solar energy system will fail to work as intended.
But wait, there’s more!
Just like how the human brain has a lot of functions, a solar inverter is not only limited to energy conversion, it also serves as a communicating device as to whether your system is working properly or not.
With the improvement in technology throughout the years, the inverters can now connect to the internet and provide online data monitoring. Through a mobile application or website, you can now easily access system information and performance of your solar system and compare harvest data per hour, day, week, month, or year. Some advance inverters can also detect underperforming/defective solar panels online – thus eliminating the need of having installers physically check your rooftop.
The inverters play a big role in making sure that your solar energy system is working properly, and shutdowns automatically during brownouts/emergencies to avoid electrocution, fires, or damage which is an important requirement when applying for the “Net-metering” program. Look for a solar company that will provide you with the right inverter to power your home’s solar system.
