The inverter is the “heart” of any solar system. Solar Inverter is a device capable to convert DC into AC electricity. Inverters are typical components of solar systems since solar panels generate DC electricity and most devices used in homes or offices operate on AC voltage.
The inverter’s role is to be the interface between two energy sources: the DC network on one side and the AC utility grid on the other. In addition to the conversion and feed-in function, the inverter is also responsible for system control and performance optimization.
Founded way back in 1981 they are based out of Germany, turn over billions and employ about 5000 people. They are a leader in the inverter manufacturer field and deservedly own a large share of the inverter market.
