Solar Inverter Options For Your Home

Isn’t it irritating when there is a power cut in your home and the environment remains very uncomfortable for you? The concept of a generator is way too much expenditure in terms of buying as well as maintaining. The noise it makes is another complaint we can’t ignore. So, for small homes,  the concept of inverter came to the mainline.

What are inverters?

Inverters are small electronic appliances when charged for some time provides power backup for minimal needs when there is no electricity available from the main power source. The amount of time till which it can provide the power is dependent on the capacity and efficiency. The charging of the inverters generally costs a good amount to the owners. Replacing them with solar inverters is a good idea. There are many types of solar inverters available for you in the market.

Here are some solar inverter options for your home

Off-Grid Inverters:

Off-grid inverters, also known as stand-alone inverters, are solar inverters that do not require the use of a solar panel. Instead, they get DC power from batteries that are charged by solar panels or other sources including motor generators, hydro turbines, and wind turbines. Anti-islanding protection is not required because these inverters are isolated from utility grids. Furthermore, they are unable to export extra solar energy to the grid.

Grid-Tied Inverters

Grid-tied inverters are connected to the utility grid and work by matching their frequency to that of the sine wave on the utility grid. For safety concerns, they are designed to shut down automatically in the case of a power outage. As a result, they are unable to provide electricity during a blackout. Grid-tie inverters connect local electrical power generators such as solar panels, wind turbines, and hydropower to the grid. Grid-tie inverters and solar panels are both connected to solar energy in the same way.

Hybrid Inverters:

These are a hybrid of the previous two inverters, allowing you to be mostly self-sufficient while still being able to connect to the grid in the event of low solar or heavy consumption days. Inverters of this type often charge the linked battery first, then export any extra power to the grid. Similarly, during nights/cloudy days, these inverters are sophisticated enough to utilize the stored power for consumption first, then recharge the battery via the grid after a predetermined threshold has been reached. They must be equipped with anti-islanding protection due to grid-syncing. Although these hybrid inverters are a terrific answer for Indian consumers.
