How Does A Solar Inverter Work? What Is Its Function?

When the solar photovoltaic (PV) system comes in contact with the sunlight, the electrons in the solar cell begin to move around, which produces DC (direct current) energy. The batteries collect this energy for your use.

Homes and offices run on the alternating current. Until it is converted from DC to AC, the energy in the solar cell is of no use. Here is when your solar inverter comes in. The cells send DC to your inverter, and your home gets the AC supply.

Solar Inverter Errors And Faults

Your solar Inverter comes with a fixed warranty period. Investing in a good brand minimises the risk of faults, and you can save on the repair costs too.

Many inverter problems are a result of a faulty panel or cable. If an error code is displayed on the panel, your inverter manual can help you decode the error to help you understand what went wrong. Some of the common inverter problems include:

If you have got a top-notch solar inverter, installed incorrectly, your inverter is not going to yield as per your expectations. A wrongly installed inverter can be disconnected or incorrectly programmed. The installers expertise is extremely important to help you get the best results of your system.

Solar Edge Protection can install your inverter professionally without any miss. Our team is well qualified and experienced to handle all types of solar inverters.

Inverters are constructed out of numerous electronic components, making them sensitive to temperatures. High temperatures can cause a significant reduction or complete loss of the production when the inverter reaches the maximum operating temperature. 

To avoid any such problems, you need a professional assessment to determine the adequate cooling technology or the required capacity. You have to examine the inverter cooling during the operational period to make sure that the system is operating correctly. Also, the inverter and the switch cabinet should be well ventilated.

Our team can help you assess the energy required to make sure that your inverted is not overburdened. We can help you with correctly ventilated installations to make sure that overheating is not a problem.

Types of Solar Inverter

There are various different types and brands of solar inverter available. Our engineers have experience with all different brands and models. The most common types of inverters are;

String Inverters

A String inverter is most efficient when your PV panels have similar characteristics, and they operate under the same conditions. These standard inverters are used widely for domestic and small scale commercials setups.

Your string inverter can be supplied for single or three-phase grid connections, depending upon the incoming supply. Domestic installations are mostly single-phase, and commercial ones are three-phase. If your roof is not shaded at any point, this is a good pick.

Power Optimisers

Power Optimisers are located at each panel, which conditions the DC and sends it to your string inverter. The setup results in high efficiency, which would have been impossible with a simple string inverter. If you want to optimise your system without burdening your pocket, here is an option for you.

Our power optimisers reduce the impact of any shading on your panels. Our team can help your system evolve into an efficient one, with the best inline power optimisers.

Microinverters

Installed on individual panel, Microinverters convert the DC into AC, without a separate central inverter. Microinverters can be integrated into the solar panels or can be installed next to them with a mounting system. Microinverters cancel out the impact of partial or complete shading. You can monitor the performance of each panel.

Our team can help you install microinverters to create smart modules. We are the accredited installers of all the major brands, and we can help you install a solar panel system to ensure optimum production.

Solar Inverter Replacement Cost

Solar inverters come with a lifespan of 10 to 25 years. To keep the inverter healthy, we cannot stress enough carrying out regular maintenance checks. Sometimes, when the inverter is no longer producing energy, you might want to replace it reduce waste.

Solar PV inverter replacement costs can vary considerably depending upon the type you choose. The replacement cost can range from £500 to a couple of thousand pounds. You can get a solar inverter supplied and fitted for a minimum of around £1000. It all depends upon which type of inverter is best for your system.

The cost depends upon many features, including potential power output, conversion efficiency, and the type of panels you have. If you are not sure about the best choice that would suit your requirements, our team can help assist. Please get in touch with any questions you may have
