Welcome to this installment of SPW Classroom on Solar Inverters.
Solar inverters are the hardest-working component of a solar array, as they are solely responsible for more operational functions than any other product. Their basic function is to convert the direct current (DC) power that solar panels create to alternating current (AC) power that is usable in homes and businesses, but they do so much more.
Here you will find resources describing the various types of inverters and their increasingly smart functionalities. These tutorials are all designed to give you a better understanding of this important electrical component of solar arrays.
