How to Select the Right Solar Inverter for Your Solar Plant

With the digitalization of the energy industry, we are now entering a new era in energy. PV systems are playing an important role and will soon be the most cost-effective source of energy all over the world.

As we know,PV inverters play an important role in the PV system. Now, with so many solar inverters of different brands available in the market, it can be a challenge to select the correct inverter for your roof-top PV system. Your solar system needs to survive to the expected 20 years and the solar inverter is the heart of the system, so make sure you consider the following aspects before making your decision.

Solar Inverter’s Reputation

The reputation of the solar inverter brand is generally a good indicator of its reliability and is often the first thing that most people check.

Solar Inverter’s Fit for Use

Your project capacity and power grid requirements determine which solar inverter should be selected, and the brand you choose should be able to provide solar inverters suitable for the capacity of your solar plant. This is especially an important area of consideration for smaller residential solar projects. Also, due to different countries having varying requirements for inverter voltage, special attention should be paid before making a selection.

Available Service Support for your Solar Inverter

Prompt service is one of the most important things to consider before selecting your solar inverter. Given that most inverter manufacturers do not allow you to tinker with their products on-site and a certified technician is required, it is important that your manufacturer has a reliable service network in your local area. It is also important to check if the distributor is maintaining repairs for your solar inverter at a nearby location. This is will ensure minimum downtime in case of any failures.

Does the inverter have the right protections inbuilt such as AC SPD, DC SPD, disconnects? Is the solar inverter indoor or outdoor (IP65) type? Does the solar inverter have remote monitoring capability? Does your solar inverter have forced or passive cooling? Your solar installer can typically help you with all these questions.
