What is an inverter?
What are the different type of inverters?
There are four main types of inverters: string, micro, power optimisers and hybrid.
The below tables will provide you with the pros and cons for each type:
The most common to be installed with a solar system. They are usually fixed to a wall or mounting board and installed in the attic or loft space.
These are small inverters which are attached to the back of each solar panel.
Considered as a hybrid between a string inverter and micro-inverter. Each panel has an optimiser attached to it to increase energy output.
Typically used when you have both solar system and a battery. The hybrid inverter manages both solar and battery simultaneously.
