A Brief Rundown on Solar Inverters
The solar inverter is what turns the solar energy generated by solar panels into the useable electricity that powers households. The energy generated by the solar panels is in the form of direct current (DC) energy. DC electricity only flows in one direction and is the type of electricity used to power phones and laptops. The role of the solar inverter in a photovoltaic (PV) system is to convert the DC energy into the useable AC electricity that powers households. The inverters are also connected to the grid, this is important as it needs to be able to handle the flow of AC electricity. As any surplus solar generated electricity is fed back into the grid. There are four types of solar inverters, these being string inverters, hybrid inverters, micro inverters, and power optimisers.
Growatt Inverters – Point of Difference
The Growatt CEC approved Inverter range differs from other inverter manufacturers by offering different types and configurations in the typical power range. Growatt manufactures Single Phase Inverters with one or two MMPTs (Maximum Power Point Tracking). Three Phase Inverters with dual MMPTs. And a Single Phase Hybrid Inverter with 2 MMPTs and a low voltage battery. All of the CEC approved Growatt Inverter range are Transformerless Inverters, which contributes to the high efficiency
Growatt MIN 2500-6000TL-X/XH is a 2.5-6kW Single Phase Inverter with 2 MPTTs. This inverter is showcasing the developments of inverter technology, function, and appearance. This inverter ranges from 98.2% to 98.4% efficiency, making it one of the most efficient residential inverters on the market. This in combination with the Touch key, OLED display and sleek modern design is setting a new standard for inverters.
Growatt Inverter Efficiency
Residential inverter efficiency standards are generally 95 to 98 percent. Growatt inverters meet or exceed these standards, with the CEC approved inverters ranging from 97.2-98.4% efficiency. The Growatt MIN 2500-6000TL-XH for example has up to 98.4% efficiency. This situates Growatt as one of the top inverter manufacturers in the industry for residential inverter efficiency.
