For more details on String inverters and Central Inverters, please visit the earlier post here: http://ecosoch.com/types-of-on-grid-inverters-micro-string-central/ Many-a-times it’s inherently assumed that the bigger the better and cheaper. So ideally speaking the Central Inverter architecture (small number of very large inverters ) are cheaper and have better performance that that of String Inverter Architecture (large number of [...]

Advantages and Disadvantages of Micro Inverters

  Solar Micro Inverters existed since the advent of the solar PV systems, but then due to high costs associated with manufacturing, it wasn’t popular until recently when a company enphase made the first commercially successful micro inverter M175 in 2008. Since then many established companies like SMA, Power-One (now ABB), Delta and other companies [...]
