Solar Inverters Cape Town
Solar inverters control the flow of current in a PV system. It takes DC current (direct current) and converts it into AC current (alternating current). Once the conversion has been done, the electricity is ready to be used for your household appliances.
Solar inverters Cape Town are solely responsible for more operational functions than any other PV system component. These duties have continued to grow as systems get smarter and increase interaction with the utility grid. So what exactly does a solar inverter do?
- Convert DC to AC power
- Maximize power output
- Interface with the grid
- Report on power production
- Ensure safe system operation
Types of Solar Inverters Cape Town
Solar Inverter technologies have changed a lot in recent years. They are more advanced and have become much cheaper. In addition to converting DC to AC, a new technology inverter provides a number of other capabilities and services to ensure that the inverter can operate at an optimal performance level.
These include data monitoring, advanced utility controls, applications, and system design engineering. Inverter manufacturers also provide post-installation services that are integral to maintaining energy production and a high level of performance.
There is a range of different types of solar inverters available. To start with, we can break it down into three categories.

PWM vs MPPT Charge Controllers
PWM controllers – a switch that connects a solar array to a battery. The result is that the voltage of the array will be pulled down to near that of the battery.
MPPT controllers – more sophisticated and about 25% more efficient than the PWM as it will adjust its input voltage to harvest the maximum power from the solar array and then transform this power to supply the varying voltage requirement, of the battery plus load.
How Do Solar Inverters Work?
Choosing a Solar Inverter
Controlling Maximum Power Output
Solar inverters are responsible for continually tracking your solar array’s voltage to figure out the maximum power at which your solar panels operate, ensuring the system produces the most and cleanest power at all times.
There are many different sizes available for inverters. The size required is dependent on the size of the solar panels installed. For example, a 5kW solar power system would require an inverter of similar or larger capacity. At its most basic level, it must be equipped to manage the maximum amount of power the system could generate.
