2 Main Categories of Hybrid Solar Inverters

Posted by Radmin on June 15th, 2019

Hybrid solar inverters are the in-between of the conventional in- and off-grid inverters. Traditionally, the term refers to 2 generation sources, such as wind and solar, but recently it hints at a combination of storage that's connected to the electricity grid.

This machine synchronizes your main utility power and supplements your electrical usage during the day and night using the stored solar power in its batteries. This ability to stock energy enables it to work as a backup supply in the case of blackouts. This equipment can be categorized into 2 main types. Continue reading to learn more.

All-in-One Home Solar Inverters

There's a wide variety of all-in-one home solar inverters available based on each individual unit's capabilities and features.

  •          No Back-Up - An all-in-one system with no back-up is the most basic kind. It works much like a grid feed inverter but also allows storage of solar energy in its battery system for self-use. If grid stability isn't an issue, then this simple apparatus is a good economical choice for you.
  •          With Back-Up - A system with back-up is also known as an uninterruptible power supply or UPS function. Under normal processing, it can supply power to your home and simultaneously charge the unit's batteries. The excess can then be fed into the grid. If there's a blackout, in less than half a second, it’ll automatically switch to the supply mode and continue to operate independently.
  •          With Integrated Battery - An all-in-one system with an integrated battery is a recent trend. It's a full-package model, consisting of the inverter and the battery in one unit. It offers a cost-effective and neat option that's usually the size of a fridge. This equipment is easy to install but has some limitations, as it can't be updated.

Advanced AC-Coupled Systems

Most traditional machines have 2 different inverters: a solar and multi-mode inverter. They work together to form an AC-coupled system. A solar inverter can be any standard model that's compatible with its paired multi-mode unit to optimize the charging of batteries. Meanwhile, the multi-mode inverter acts as a charger and complete management system by using programmable software to improve energy use.

Because oftheir many advanced software and features, hybrid solar inverters offer a one-stop-shop solution, revolutionizing the industry practices of generating and storing energy. They increase your conductivity efficiency, enable you to use advanced energy management, and free you from relying on the grid. This lessens the cost of your utility bills. If you're interested in one, contact your local solar panel contractor and enlist their installation services.
