Solar Inverter

solar inverter, or converter or PV inverter, converts the variable direct current (DC) output of a photovoltaic (PV) solar panelinto a utility frequency alternating current (AC) that can be fed into a commercial electrical grid or used by a local, off-gridelectrical network. It is a critical balance of system (BOS)–component in a photovoltaic system, allowing the use of ordinary AC-powered equipment. Solar power inverters have special functions adapted for use with photovoltaic arrays, including maximum power point tracking and anti-islanding protection.
