Grid Tie Inverters For Solar Power Projects
Solar inverters form a major and an essential component of the rooftop solar system. The solar inverters have today evolved from being more than mere boxes, to become more smart and intelligent. The main function of an inverter is to convert direct current into alternating current that helps in running the appliances in our homes.
It is the most sophisticated part of any grid-tie solar system and unfortunately, it is also the part most likely to have issues. This is not surprising considering inverters are usually located outside under harsh weather conditions including rain, humidity and extreme heat, all while generating thousands of watts of power for up to 10 hours a day. This is why it’s important to use a quality inverter and mount it in a sheltered location if possible.
Solar panels can also develop problems over time which can result in poor performance, but unlike a faulty inverter, this will generally not result in a complete system shutdown. With this in mind, it is worthwhile paying the additional cost for a reputable manufacturer (one which has been in good business standing for 5+ years and with extended warranties if available.)
We recently conducted a survey of Best Grid Tie Inverter with the major esteemed solar project EPC teams in India for their experience with various makes available in the market.
It turns out that SMA, ABB & DELTA are the best quality & most reliable grid tie solar inverters as per the experience of the EPC players in India. While when it comes to the satisfaction with respect to after sales support for service; DELTA, ABB & FRONIUS are the most liked by the professionals.
The title for best grid-tie solar inverter has never been closer as many of the top manufacturers recently released advanced new models with clever online monitoring and smart home control features.
The hype around home battery systems is also growing, but it is still early days for batteries and most solar battery installations still need a dedicated solar inverter.
