When the sun’s rays hit the surface of a solar panel, the electricity is produced as a direct current (DC). An inverter’s basic function is to “invert” the direct current (DC) output into alternating current (AC). AC is the standard that can be fed into a utility-based electrical grid (or) for local, off-line AC demands. When including a storage solution, an inverter works in conjunction with a charge controller that regulates the rate of an electric current into and out of electric batteries to alleviate overcharging and protects against overvoltage. Inverters are broadly classified as either Pure Sine or Modified Sine wave. Pure Sine wave inverters are considered to be more efficient and produce less interference and distortions than Modified Sine wave inverters. Pure Sine wave is the most appropriate for appliances, computers, and audio functions.
